You have to put together one of those online picture scrap books and get them printed. Honestly would be neat to flip thru all the best images of this insane build!

Amazing! Just curious, why did you decide to mount the IAT down below? I’ve always read to mount it near the TB. I also had a question for you on your radiator hoses. How did you cut those? I have some -20 SS hoses I am going to use on my build and they are way too big for my hose cutters. Thinking about using a hack saw but probably won’t get the straightest cut. Looking great and can’t wait to see it all assembled.

Due to the meth nozzle location the IAT was suggested by the tuners and others to be before the injection. Distance from its current location to installation at throttle body and the change in temps was said to be negligible.

I also had a question for you on your radiator hoses. How did you cut those? I have some -20 SS hoses I am going to use on my build and they are way too big for my hose cutters. Thinking about using a hack saw but probably won’t get the straightest cut. Looking great and can’t wait to see it all assembled.
I used masking tape across the hose where I wanted to cut, draw a line around the hose on the tape. Then use a thin 2mm stainless steel cutting disc on a grinder and slowly work you way around the pipe. Once cut, file and clean burs off then carefully peel the tape off. This will stop the fraying of the fibres on the hose.

Official kilometres travelled before restoration, and a full tank of fuel, two thing you'll never see again lol

All new globes in the cluster makes a large difference.

My teapot is still leaking, my Lego head man is still winking at me and the columns of the Acropolis seem to suggest my car is European not Ozzy! To hell with it all, I'm on Tour anyways. :p

I scrolled thru your photobucket account looking for some pictures of your relocation of the main fuse box , but no luck finding it. Can you share?
Thanks!

I'm in the process of going thru my wiring harness and removing all unused wires. I also want to re-locate the main fuse box so it keeps the engine bay clean. I was considering just moving it to where my ABS unit is, or perhaps locating it under the passenger side dash. Curious on where you placed yours. Thanks in advance!

I'll get a bunch of pictures together and we can have a chat if you want. It is a large job and unless its a stripped out race car id be reserved about moving it. With full trim id be confident that it wont fit in either the ABS or under dash location. Accessibility may also by affected in these areas if needed.

I've relocated to the RHS rear boot location.

pictures would be a huge help! Rear boot is a long way to relocate, but a great spot. My car will have full interior, but other than that it's basically a stripped race car (no heat/ac) so plenty of room under the dash now.
