      I took the fabric off the spare tire cover. It had battery acid spilled on it and it was coming up, along with the walls in the trunk. All fabric removed and replaced.

      use Shine Seal Kit and wipes right off with water seals the metal.....

      low pressure is around $1100.00 in UK $675.00 GBP = $1089.00 USD close..

      the 3-piece was told they will make exactly what you want anything goes and so does the price but typically runs $6500.00 set of 4 not really funny.....

      so, they have a plan to get both of the best of the 2 worlds at least that was told us....

      going to wait and see..... 1100-1400 a lot can do that..... we can't but will make it work

      I broke out the Dremel and smoothed out a few spots on my valve cover to prep for powdercoating tomorrow. It's going to be wrinkle black like my catch can.







      I've got the fittings to run 10an lines from the valve cover and from the crank breather. But I need to find a way to make lines.

      Removed my Blueflame after having it on for over 4 years, goodbye first mod (on the upside, it was sold to help pay for my clutch). I also sold my AGN valve cover a few weeks ago, but USPS **** themselves and its lost for forever. That helped nothing

      replaced all breather hoses (also installed 034 Motor Sport silicone breather hose), Newsouth performance intake manifold gasket , fuel filter, hub and hub bearing F driver side, SS brake lines and did another brake bleed.

      And after all that the tech told me timing belt need to be replace as well. lol

      Turns out they are closed on Monday's. I've got it bagged up for m girl to drop off on her lunch break. I'll update the thread with pics. I now need to find somewhere that can make my some 3/4" 10an lines to finish it all ups I've been dying to see this engine cleaned up. No more sh|t clamps to cut my hoses. There is a place north of me that will do custom lines from their parts desk. Just walk up and they can make it on the spot. I might just bring the car to them and let them see what they are building the lines for. Give them an idea of the shape. Following the natural curve of a hose when making/routing it can make things much easier/cleaner looking. Wish I could find a hydraulic supply place near me.

      Why don't you just use compression an fittings, rather than crimped hydro lines?

      From my experience putting my lines together, I couldn't imagine it leaking. I personally like the an fittings more for the looks. A friend of mine has always gone with crimped lines, but he is the kind of car builder that never plans ahead, just builds on the fly. Pretty much just a preference thing.

      Big thanks to davemk1 for hooking me up with a spare needle. This project was such a headache though, would not recommend it to anyone. Let's just say it involved a foil gum wrapper and a safety pin. Excited to see it in the daylight.

      Refit my crap ass ebay spoiler. Had to spend an additional hour and a half on it. I got sick of looking in the rearview waiting to see it on the street, smashed to bits by the car behind me... Pics of all the trimming and material removed once I pick up some more trim tape.
