thanks for posting the pictures Andy

For the front caliper did you put a banjo on the end of the brake pipe to make it fit or have you replaced it with a different part?

Morning,

We now have a very nice 8 gallon fuel tank supplied by K4Kev. The tank accepts the mx5 fuel sender with a minor mod to the float and sensor, turning it 90 degrees. The float has also been shortened slightly so that when it reads empty there is still a gallon on the tank, just personal choice. I have put up some pics on Flickr:

The item is now for sale on the saturn website.

Cheers....AndyH

Looks good Andy, have you tried a diffuser under that tank?

The underside of my tank is similar and my diffuser only just fit, probably ok but thought i would mention it incase it needs packing up a little before you plum it all in, get the rear tub on, offer up the diffuser and then think..... oh bo#*~cks!

Thanks Mark, but yes we've tried one and it's okay. Started making the bodywork for it and its Golden Yellow and black wings with a black stripe - codenamed the "BumbleBee"......

Thanks.....AndyH
