    Looks wickid mate. Any more photos of how lines a run?

    Next time I’m there i’ll take a few more photos.

     

    Saw you also purchased a radiator from south coast radiators. Same place I’ll get mine done. I only live up the road as well. They seem to be doing a lot of high profile burnout cars these days. So must be alright.

    Oh, you saw that? haha.

    Nothing beats a good quality brass radiator. I’m really not a fan of the alloy radiators.

    I actually received it today. Its damn heavy haha, but build quality is second to none. Literally. Speak to Rick there and he will sort you out!

     

    Interesting way to do it..looking at heaps of cars trying to decide how I want trans & fuel lines hidden. Fuel lines to passenger side? Trans line up bellhousing then through inner guard under boster to front of car? No room between steering/extractors?

    It was the neatest way to do it man. Things are very tight in these conversions around the steering knuckle.

     

    My fuel lines are on the passenger side in the bay. I brought mine down the drivers side chassis rail, then across the car near the back of the gearbox that’s all in hard line. Then up over the trans tunnel the the passenger side, I did that in braid as it was easier with the tans in the car. Then the reg and return are on the passenger side in the bay as there was way more room.

    You run out of room very quick in these conversions man, My reg is in the middle of my vic jr manifold. talk about fancy haha

    Hey mate, how much room do you have left under the rear?

    Im trying to do the same but I have 15×9 with a 3 inch backspace. I’d like to get away with not tubbing the car as well.

    Love the car too, when I was buying mine I wanted white but was too impatient!

    Cheers

    Hey Juzzie,

    It isn’t uncommon to be able to fit a 275 under the bum [not x275], without tubbing.

    You will lose the qtr lip straight up to fit it, plus the car will have to be jacked up a bit more than mine.

    Check out the D’Annello Performance Vl’s, they have a few running that setup.

    I will admit it is tight but haha

    Good to see you having a steer of the old girl the other day as well!

    Boot setups nearly done. Cam [AngryT] and Matt [Fstgmh] have made this look killer.

    Running 2x in tank bosch 040 pumps in the 60L cell

    Top line is a breather

    Middle is a return

    Bottom is a feeder

    It’s ok Gary, you can flag this as inappropriate because the hard lines are pure porn haha

    This post is for Cava

    The bulkhead thats got nothing on it is the breather. Ran out of braid haha. It will vent in the fuel flap with a filter on the end apparently haha.

    I was going to suggest the same thing sands but wasn’t sure as its a preference thing.  On mine I just used that spray can texture coat, easy as anything to apply and made it look schmick as, easy to touch up too.  But then no one actually really sees the underside.

    could you please write here or PM me what you used? Also how much you needed.

    Thanks.

    I used this stuff, seriously its epic.  So easy to spray on, and it makes it look really nice, hides a lot of the imperfections etc.  I am guessing maybe I used two cans under the car.
