Greetings from the uk!

Here's a rough build thread of our 2 slime blower builds currently in the build stages here in the uk.

Our aim with these builds was to make them on a low budget, make as much ourselves or track down original parts or find something near enough to the original parts.

We started this project back in September 2014 by researching as much as we could on all the different parts and working out dimensions for the tanks and tracking down original HL 300 cateye lamps. Said from the beginning we wasn't going to rush this so everything has been done to our best abilities and of a good quality. No point doing it if your not gonna give it your all.

So then, next up will be mainly pictures of all the parts we acquired and finish with where we are up to with the build itself.

Thanks for looking

2 sets of original cateye lights all sourced via ebay uk, ebay worldwide and a cycling forum from Australia.
A bit of searching and going the extra mile and we had the sets required for both the builds plus some spare lamp body's

Fittings with a few tweeks to be made.

Not screen accurate but near enough and no where near as much cost as the original fittings would of cost us

A note about posting images, you don't need to add the "URL" tag codes when the image links already have them built in. :)

Hi
Today was our first build day since summer last year.

We now have the other blower all painted up. All pump boxes have heat sinks painted and fixed aswell as the cap for the back of the gun. The tray for the bottom of the main tanks is all fixed and ready for all the bits to be fixed to the Alice frames.

Next we have the guns to assemble,electrics,sounds and finally the shoulder pads to finish off
