That's running from the lower rad to the back of the engine

I've used 25mm and 32mm stainless pipe to make the joins and runs, I might get the outside blasted and powder coated to keep it looking factory tho

I just need to decide where I'm going to T my header tank into and make a few brackets to support the tube in places to stop the silicone rubbing anywhere!

First job today make a dummy exhaust collector so I can mock up my exhaust, luckily my dads built a cnc router!

Then mocked up with four tubes of equal length

Then started to draw it up on the cad to work out my bends

Then made a start on remaking my rear upper wishbones

You may want to add some sort of ridge to the pipe ends if you have not already done so,two builders were scalded when the pipes blew off when hot due to not gripping the pipe.

I think you might find that they were also using plastic fittings from a vacuum cleaner

Got my seats from JK Composites this week

Really happy with the quality

Also got a column and got it mounted

Rosco 24th January 2015 07:41 PM

Just need to get a UJ joint that's fits the rack as the one I've got is to big

I've cut the steering lock off and I'm going to get the Ali bit turned town so it's nice a clean looking coming out of the dash

Got my lower engine mount sorted to!

Here's a pic of where my upper harness holes fall, there a bit high up


I was hoping to have some welded bosses in the top chassis rail like most people do must looks a bit high, I don't really want a cross rail as I'm going to put
A diagonal across the rear hoop, what options do I have, anyone got any ideas?

Looking good there, sure someone will come back with a bright idea about the harnesses......I may well be wrong but I was under the impression that the steering lock was one of the things required for iva?
