    The pipework that is fitted was made by AAS who also made the exhaust, its a bit of tricky bugger to fit.

    Like most jobs on modifying cars its the stupid things that take time and money.

    Thought it might foul on a standard track beam.
    Just looked at the photos Alan at protec sent us and it could be your car that the braided hose idea came from. One of the photos has a pirtec symbol around the filler cap. We just copied the idea so I guess thanks are in order!
    The setup works fine but draws unwanted attention at scruitineering and I'm always nervous of someone throwing a spare into the back and damaging it. Would have prefered something along those lines this time.

    Thats my old car with the Pirtek decals , its a bit of a bugger to do and the internal route if braided hose is used shouldnt give you any problems.

    kev that interior is looking awesome! having said that so is the rest of it haha.

    are your carbon footwells from protec? i put a big order in to them on friday and forgot to order the footwells. oops. will ring them tomoro. did you need to weld in mounts? i presume they end up sitting flat as opposed to the angled floorpan yes?

    Machined bits look awesome. That workshop looks really well set-up! It would be so nice to have a set of CNC machines at hand.

    To fit the right bits in the right way, I think it's almost essential! Everything you buy off-the-shelf just never seems to fit right. Looking forward to seeing some videos!
