I made sure that my fuel pipe didn't drop below the line of the inner wheel arch.
That was pretty much my first question but weíre above the line of the BMW inner wheel arch liner (not that itíll be going back in itself - will fabricate new!)

Here you can see the fuel filler pipe heads initially directly forwards towards the bulkhead...

At the bulkhead right at the back of the boot to keep the space as usable as possible it takes a 90-degree turn and runs parallel to the bulkhead, continuing its steady fall as it does so

At the right hand side a pair of 45-degree bends allow the pipe to continue to the cutout that was made previously through the relatively flat sheet metal at the side of the boot here. It joins on to the pipe shown in last weekís posts and into the tank. A continuous fall from filler neck to tank, if a little convoluted to retain the usability of the boot-space. Yet to be tested at the pumps but weíre very hopeful!
