I ran out of copper pipe so had to spend 40 minutes queueing outside Halfords today to buy more. Then I spent the whole afternoon wrestling with it. Some creative routing going on here!

For each step forward, there's at least one backward though.
I happened to glance at the steering wheel while I was hooking up pipework -what the?!!
The gloss black paint on the wheel has crazed all over. Not tiny hairline cracks, but dirty great big chasms. It was originally sprayed by the guys who do my powder coating, but then rubbed down & re-done by one of my brother's mates, who's a full-time painter.
It was fine last time I looked at it. I consulted with Loony & he reckons the original paint has softened in the recent sunlight. Bugger.
So now I've got to sand the whole thing right down to bare plastic & spray it again. I swear this thing's never gonna get finished Sad

Fitted one cable-tie this evening, (a bag of cable-tie anchor points arrived in the Post -plastic lugs that push into a hole & have a slot for the tie to slide through so you can tie stuff to flat panels, or truck chassis). I needed to strap a fuel line up to the chassis out of the way of the exhaust. Wasn't going to do anything this evening as I'm still working extended shifts & was knackered, but thought I'd wind down with a stroll to the garage to drop them off.
Fitted without damaging anything or swearing.
I called that a win & went home again Smiley

Slightly more achieved today.
It was a gloriously sunny Sunday, but I spent it in a gloomy garage with my head under the dashboard, making more brake pipes.
The remote dual circuit servo's behind the dash' because there was nowhere else to put it, but it makes the pipework kinda complicated! I'm not sure how much copper pipe is in a reel from Halfords, but I've just used up a 2nd reel & still have the pipes to the front wheels to go!

The steering wheel's currently at Loony's workshop, awaiting sanding down & repainting, which is handy cos it would've been in the way Smiley
