Ah, Gulf - can see it now. Might need a splash of orange somewhere... :D

And the tech question; is that a 2" roll bar with the other tubes in 1 1/2"? I don't know the detail of the current regs past assuming there's also door bars.

Thanks

From memory its a 4 gallon tank ,made by http://www.brise.co.uk/
it has a return so can be used with fuel injection
All the suspension work and brakes have been done Mike Hanna I just fitted it ,the rest of the work I have done except for the paint on the outside ,jim had this done by a friend
will try and get a few more pics up soon

Looking very good, can I ask a couple of questions please :roll:
Examining your photo's it looks like you've run the clutch hydraulic pipe under the floor whereas the brakes are inside, why?
Do the regs state that fuel pipes can't be run inside the car ?

You can run all the pipes under the car if you want as far as I know the good thing with the imp is the tunnel as it keeps the pipes out of harms way ,1 of my reasons for putting the brakes inside is I can use the right had side of tunnel to run 2 throttle cables and on the otherside is the fuel and clutch pipes ,also having the brake pipe inside is a lot easier to spot a leak on your system
As for the cage yes its 50mm rear hoop and the rest is 45mm cage was made by fabricage

And thank you too Col. That's pleasantly beefy - presumably in excess of current Blue Book standard (which I don't know but am guessing 48/38 mm).
