Cars home now but I need to earn some brownie points before I do any work on it.

Hoping to have it ready for paint in a month or so.

Little update time I have been doing a bit more seam welding and general getting it ready for paint.

The recent thread on fuel pump housings got me thinking about mine. I used to suffer from fuel starvation on long right handers. So I have got myself a swirl pot and I am changing my I tank pump to a low pressure lift pump to feed the pot. After a bit of messing about with the plastic holder a mate suggested that I do one out of stainless so that I can use AN type fittings.

Yes I know it’s been awhile but here’s a little up date.

underside has been cleaned and primed and a coat of upol Raptor with the red paint mixed in. The lady at the paint place gave me base coat and not red pigment by mistake and it gone a bit pink. So it’s going to get a coat of 2k in the proper red colour.

Of to the paint shop in a few weeks.C1B14266-218F-4217-8DC8-CF91A6B8770F.thumb.jpeg.ed22febe9b8fcc5904a3969b3d2ea487.jpeg

I like this a lot, just checking you have realised that the 6 mounting holes have one that isn't equally spaced?
