Wow! very impressive. Can you tell us how much, including the $2300 you paid for the X5, did you spent in total?

Love to hear about how you trued the block and heads at home? Did you use a flat surface, like a woodworkers chisel sharpening plate, and move it back and forth with different levels of abrasives or something else?

Thanks for documenting this.

Very impressive job, mate! Well done - that must have been hugely rewarding.

IF you have the space and time, why not?

Drooling over the comfort seats for $150! (one hundred fifty!). Wish they were black...

I've hand-lapped plenty of heads, but no vee-blocks. Kudos bro.

Love to see these kinds of builds - they are becoming less and less common in our consumer goods, throw-away society.

Wish you many miles of pleasure.
