Think Steve's 30hp needs a Judson, not Deano's 8O :lol:

50mph seemed so fast on the last leg home down the M3 :wink:
That really did start to concern me on how slow we were going.. and I didn't have any speedo!!.

Effectively you have a heavier bus with the same setup.. something not quite right there.. But you know Steve.. he'll just plod along..

Having the Judson on is gonna be bonkers!! (in 30hp terms :wink: )
I was slowing down to 25 on the big hills, and Steve still wasn't keeping up... It was pretty scarey watching you disappear off the back of the convoy :pale: (Reckon we avaraged about 40mph)

On the plus side, our fuel consumption for the trip must be amazing :lol:

As promised - Prototype fuel tank measurer has progressed.
Revision A - built before my missus got home last night is now toast, Revision B and hopefully final version should be built tonight as she is out. Based on the one Tonny had.
Just got a man to knock me out the most intricate lettering and vw symbols. :wink:
Post up a pic when its done.

Great Pics,
I was bloody hungry by then, i think thats Phil's usual diet.
Ah the odd girl licking my roof, strange end to the evening, funny though. Do you remember the seat conversation - boy that was heavy going

Ok so here is revision B, now too scrap. Font was too large.
The first one i did was stamped digits and stamped divisions but it was too hard to paint and im too much of a kack handed flid to get them straight and the stamps curved the stick.
Not going for spot on just kinda simular and usefull...

more pics please........
