I managed to get some rubber fuel hose today so I could make up a return line already have some braided stuff for the feed.




Temporary connection until I can get some more fittings so it will clear the rear seat back and some hose finishers for the ends.


Oh YES! Houston we have lift off!!

Just been and collected 1 of my wheels after re-ferb before and after photo, I had them powder coated in a gun metal colour.



I think they'll look good on the car when it's finished.

That's pretty steep for my meager funds, but the work does look top notch.
