Yep, 90mm see how it goes as mid price one so not sure about the overall quality.

Received the final fittings today so finished off mocking up the air conditioner piping. Had to get the die grinder out to provide some more clearance on one fitting but overall happy with the final layout in the engine bay.

Did not over think the pipe supports, simple easy and cheap way of mounting the lines.

Well after waiting for over two years I finally hit the buy now button for a set of gauges. I think they will really suit the build and allow full access to data from the engine.

Hey Taz, those gauges are swweeet, nice touch that the reset/calibration buttons stick out of the gauge like all cars. Ended up fitting mine, (two buttons on cables), below and between the switches either side of the steering column.
Great build mate, well done so far.
Cheers

Another piece of the puzzle arrived, compressors for the air suspension.

Taz,

I can see a great looking car from these pics, well thought out, well engineered and well fabricated.

It would be good to see this in the flesh eventually.

Regards

Sneaky little rust repair on the RH front guard. Rust is the gift that keeps giving.

It's an EK - surely you are not surprised there's rust in it ?????? :lol: :lol:
When you're faced with an unpleasant task that you really don't want to do, sometimes you just have to dig deep down inside and somehow find the patience to wait for someone else to do it for you.

Final piece of the air suspension has arrived. Can’t wait to get it or fitted up and operational.
