    hi

    hi all .....
    not been on for a long time got a few little update not much though she's been abit neglected for a few good months now but its m.o.t time on saturday so attentions turned back to the car.
    so what have we done
    new indicator bulb pasanger side for mot, what a pain in the ass to get at.
    spoiler got fitted then removed, wraped in vinyl (only a test to see if the shape could be done), fitted liked it so orded enough vinyl to do it in one piece rather than 2 halves as it is.
    fitted some rear footwell lights in white that work with the interiour light, then orded some in red that come on with the ignition so now they will match the front footwells:D
    apart from that washed it drove it loved it. more to follow......

    from what i can see in the dark the two ports are one infront of the other, ive taken the port furthest from the radiator and piped it towards the fuel presure regulator but ''t'' off to my boost gauge first and then ''t'' off for the DV. hope that makes sence, the other port closest to the radiator supplys the vacume feed to the tray that has all the valves on it thats upside down in front of the inlet under the plastic cover. when i did it i i repiped all of the hoses on that tray as well using a guide from mk4 golf forums iirc, sorry i havn't got a link for it but hope that helps.

    anyone else dislike the shape of the hose that goes to the dump valve

    [​IMG]

    its the one on the top left that iv tried to circle

    its a funny old shape and I couldn't see the point so I chopped it up and made this

    [​IMG]

    I like it actually, its different, which is good in my eyes.

    My only feedback would be to clean up the cut on the bend, try get this nicely smooth and uniform as the rough edges are quite prominent through the perspex. Might need some colour or dye on the frays though!

    finally got started on my occ today not fitted yet but was making a bracket I wanted to mount it at the front next to the battery however there is a bloody rad pipe in the way so-
    [​IMG]
    bracket time
    orded some 8mm Perspex to work with will be sitting between the lid and the tank then mounted on the front of car.
    [​IMG]
    heres the lid I orded fittings so 19mm hoses can fit, brought a cheep can from the bay and modified it using copper pipe a 45deg fitting and some rust proof scouring pads as id seen a guy on a Mitsubishi evo forum make one and thought im a plumber I can do that!

    postie came this morning with this for me

    [​IMG]

    held the pipework up to see how it will look

    [​IMG]

    so waiting for some nyloc nuts and a few other bits but coming along nice

    I managed to get some elbows for the braided fuel hoses as I snaped em through stupidity at the time and the hoses form parts place they wanted £64 screw that so while the lid was up got em fitted along with hose spaces and went from this

    [​IMG]

    with the fuel lines pointing up which has bugged me for ages to this

    [​IMG]

    and then took a couple of shots of her
