today i did a bit of work on my car.





drilled the vacuum attachment into the turbo housing, then re fitted it to the manifold. also fitted a new oil feed with restrictor in as the turbo is a ball bearing one, fitted the water unions and attached bits of pipe, and also fitted the oil return union and joined the pipe back to the block.

all good stuff really.

i had paint left over from doing the wheels. seemed only fair to do the rocker cover aswell. i think its better than the black one with random flicks on it.
