It as I say going to be a race truck hence moving the engine back to improve the balance of the truck,so the colour/s is/are open season.

I worked in a commercial Mercedes dealership in 1983 and some of the fitters were bonkers - take mad Frank,he would laugh hysterically as he blew the brake drums out with an airline.....Probably long dead as it was asbestos back then!
