I-Class nozzle complete

Drilled and tapped the nozzle this morning.  I don't think that I mentioned it earlier but the steel is 12L14 steel, commonly refered to as Ledloy because of addition of lead (0.15-0.35%).  It's really nice stuff to work with.  Here are a couple of pictures.

12L14 steel is the best for work, to my mind. My friend used it for making details to his range rover. We spent several days in the garage, but it was worth it.
