So Jerk Fest is coming I better get finished!
Brought a Bride seat rail.... Turned up rusty as fuck, Looks like its been outside for two years or something rather annoying.
Anyway best get stripping it and painting it so I can get a seat in!
This is going to take a while....
Started getting a few more things back in, The intercooler was mounted low and sat under the bumper. While I could and may get another sized intercooler we managed to mount this one higher.
We had to move all the joiners and pipes around alot but it does appear to mock up ok which is good, The only thing is the bumper iron now covers half of the cooler. I am going to basically cut holes and repaint this when we have it all going to allow more air flow.
Spent a bit of time looking at how we are going to fit the oil cooler, We are going to tip it upside down (hope this will still work ok have to check) and bolt it with extended bolts behind the bonnet latch. Basically it will sit between the intercooler and the radiator and bolt through the top. Airflow won't be perfect here but hopefully it will be enough and it won't have to work too hard, It'll still get air through the front grill to most of it anyway.
Hopefully bolt the turbo and manifold up tomorrow, finish the intercooler pipes and cut new oil return line. I will also drop the oil ready to replace fluids and double check everything!
