finished putting to gether my brakes and made new brake pipes





passenger brake pipe is 90% hidden in the engine bay

Hello.

You might have problems with inlet manifold. I did the same , by insulating exhaust manifold where it have a contact with inlet manifold , visually everything seemed fine , but after I started the car , had some fuel leak from there  :roll: so I had to cut wrap in that area  :wink:

Looks clean and tidy.

About the brake fluid res, did you have to make a new pipe for that or does the original reach?

I have to take my engine out sooner or later and it could do painting to match the outside, perfect time to move some brackets around i think.  8)

big update

after a brake fluid leak from a dodgy master cylinder, i ended up having to respray the engine bay again. this time it has come out much better though.





then gave the subframe a lick of black paint





finally a master cylinder that doesn't leak



engine off the stand and flywheel and clutch on



gearbox on



and in the bay for the final time





and on with my hoses, courtesy of samco replacing my stained yellow hoses free of charge



and after some messing around, decided to keep the header tank back in the std place or there would be too much pipe work on the drivers side



intercooler painted black to hide it behind the bumper



scuttle covers



new boost pipe run



and thanks to a good friend, its now also got a bonnet bra!!

i couldnt be euro without one



next up is bleed the brakes and adjust the gear linkage then its back on with the borbets

 :D

the originals just reach. i did try my own pipe work but it was hard get it to seal on the master cylinder. you do need to drill a hole in the firewall for the pipes to run through
