Default Progress update....

Not made huge progress over the last couple of weeks but have spent a fair amount of time working out the locations for the fuel pump and filters plus the routes for the fuel and brake lines.
The previous builder had managed to crush the fuel lines between the body tub and the chassis so I have planned some routes that will hopefully avoid the same issue.

I've also now trial fitted the fuel tank so I can start installation of the fuel lines.....

I've also been buying up more parts from ebay.....

A 80mm diameter 180 degree silicone bend for the air inlet.

and another pedal box. This one is from an e87 BMW116 that has less offset on the brake pedal compared to the e36 and e46 pedals. Haven't had time to try it properly yet as the body tub is off at present.

And finally, started making up another bracket, this time to mount the air input filter....

Next job is to start the fuel lines and mounting the fuel pump,etc...
