Lovely fabrication work. Straight-forward, functional and structural. This will be super cool to see finished.

Thanks mate, I am trying to keep it as simple and functional as possible I am hanging to get this finished as well, this will be the 3rd time it has been through a rebuild.

Anyway update time fuel tank, surge tank, lines and pumps are done, it cost a small fortune in fittings and fuel line but it should outlast the car and its E85 ready should I go that way.

Battery system next.

Been a while since my last post but I have been ripping into it. There is still so much to do and I some times regret going to this extent with the refresh.

Battery is now mounted and cable rerun, I have changed from an Odessey battery to an Optima, I went through 2 Odessey's which is pretty shit considering they did fuck all work I even had them on the trickle charger and they still died. The Optima is a fair bit bigger but much higher CCA, hopefully it last longer, does use a sweet solid billet mounting tray though.

Any way some more pics for those following...

 So clean you could eat off it!

Thanks Matt, I don't know how long it will stay this clean though!!

I have done a heap in this last month, as I get a chance I will post up some more pics.

I wasn't entirely happy with the original pedal box mount i made, it had I bit too much movement for my liking, considering I am not using a booster there is going to be a lot more pedal effort required and I don't want any flex at all in the mount. So I re made it a lot beefier but still easy to remove a master cylinder or the pedal box with out stripping the whole dash. Ideally I should have incorporated it to the cage, oh well next rebuild. Also mounted the brake fluid reservoir where the booster used to sit.

New power distribution/fuse board and gear shifter cover. Also added an inline brake pressure switch to activate brake lights, the Tilton pedal box doesn't have the facility to run a mechanical switch. Another issue I had was the roll cage section that went through the firewall to the strut tower used the original wiring loom hole, so more metal had to be removed to accomodate the loom.
