I dont need the dash off anymore so i thought i would clean it and stick that back in.



next job is to clean out this shitfest.. :\





im going to find a way of nicely putting the return pipe up and out of the way.





arches back in and the front just needs the bells & discs putting on which are in the final stages of being made.





and i gave one side a quick wipe down, then i decided i couldnt be bothered so finished for the day

this weekend i set about making a custom water tank with a mate.

we had to design a tank which :

Held water
Holds 5L of water or more
Sit in the sill
Gravity feed the pump
had surge protection built in

with all these things in mind i sat to in my garage and created a couple of designs of tank, lots of drawing and measuring and chatting with steve and we came up with a concept which ticked all of the boxes..

Some of the early designs.





I went to steves armed with the mockup and a final idea and we set to on Friday morning.





cut more pieces, and tacked into place.



had a quick trial fit





final design

made a baffle for the float sensor, wasn't needed but it will stop the G forces effecting the indication.. just makes it a little more accurate.



baffle and mount plugs welded in place.



hopefully this is the quality of the whole tank once its finished.. going to brush the finish and try make it look nice.



unfortunately the gas ran out on us and we had to call it a weekend.
