This is great stuff, I have to ask, have you had any thoughts on a name for the twins ?, or had Scottie had any ideas ?. It would be morally right if Scottie had some input into the name.

Well, I was just thinking that in light of the "celestial" naming trend that was followed by RE with the Meteor, Super Meteor, and Constellation twins, and being that it is a twin cylinder, perhaps the "Gemini" heads might be a suitable moniker, because Gemini is the constellation of "the twins".
And, especially since my birth sign is also Gemini.

That sounds good to me!

I too like the Gemini name!  It's suiting and has a nice ring to it.  :)  Even tho, I had to forfeit my project, I'm still super excited to see how these heads perform.  They definitely have HUGE potential.

Glad you like it!

I also have the Connie heads here for you. They look good.
Will email later to discuss details.

Had to post a picture of the heads in place, (not fully fitted yet, just resting in place).

Checking clearance around the tank, and a picture of the primary and clutch.

Wow!
That just barely made it under the tank!
Does it touch?

No they don't touch, the picture makes it look closer than it is, although there isn't a lot of room.
