Hi again Ramon, thanks for the kind comments although I must admit I still stand in awe of your hogging from solid work!!!! The anodizing is easy as mate i don't know why I was so scared of it, just the unknown I think. Anyway you can get all your anodizing dyes etc from these two websites
http://www.caswellplating.com/
http://www.caswellplating.com.au/
 I have purchased from them both and can recommend them. good prices for the right stuff to get the right results reliably. the green dye you want is the green AEN. Actually both the red head and the green head V4's are both reed valve induction, not rotary valve. My mk3 V4 with purple heads is rotary valve induction same as the V8 and the green head flat four. sorry for any confusion and head scratching, LOL.
Cheers
Dean

Your more than welcome mate, I will upload the blown V8 and a couple more V4's as soon as I have them finished. Just in the middle of finishing off a reed valve V8 also so hopefully soon I should have a few more engines to add to the family.
cheers
for now
Dean

p.s. look forward to your email Ramon, and I REALLY like the inline twin ed racer idea, race you to finish one aye?? LOL...

Here's one of my V4 engines running. This engine was built for Wolfgang Hopfner in Germany
