Pack 20 arrived recently, this allows assembly mating the engine to the chassis, a somewhat fiddly job to do but much awaited! I'd suggest marking down the numbers of the plumbing on the front of the engine and all the other fluid lines so you can properly attach them as you move forward. On that note a few steps in issue 21 can be installed as well. I was not liking the ugly screw heads showings so I am in process of replacing them with 0-90 and 0-80 hex head bolts, adding some material to the screw holes and superbond to hold everything together- replaced stabilizer bar, front/rear upper suspension points and luggage bracket screws with these bolts improves the appearance greatly in my book.

Looks good eagle especially the fuel pumps,as semaj commented it’s interesting that you’re up to issue 21 in the USA and I believe the build was released after us in the UK

We don't have delivery of pack 21 here yet; but in looking at the instruction download there are parts you can assemble from pack 20. Thanks to Design 29 for the fuel pump and ignition coil upgrades, he does amazing quality pieces for this model, including dashboard vent and 3 piece rocker switches.

my only suggestion is install all rear radiators, hoses and front cooler tank hoses as this process is easier when it only leaves the water pump two hoses to install when it comes to installation of engine to chassis
