    The standard hinges work just fine. Happy to supply photos if you need them.
    If you wouldn?t mind sharing a photo of both that would be great. I might message Ben when time comes then for a hinge set, don?t really want to cut up my steel ones as they are pretty decent.

    No problem at all, I'll get some photos.

    My standard hinges date back to the days when I had dozens of rusty Nova doors, so it was no problem to chop them up! I keep forgetting that these cars have real value now.............

    That's all 4 of the Hangar 30 hinges taped together in the last photo, just in case that's not obvious!

    Thanks Colin. Think I?ll tap Ben up when the time comes and see if he can?t just fit them too.

    I?ve been reading that a lot of the stiffer engine mounts out there can end up raising the engine 10-15mm, which I obviously do not want. These mounts come well recommended and only increase height minimally but there?s scope to strip them down and machine a little off if required, hopefully not!

    Thought I better get these in and trial fitted to make sure none of the chassis is affected.
    Everything in this post is just p0rn!

    Next big purchase might have to be the fuel tank as I need to figure out the mounting structure for it. Really want one these from Nuke...

    The Nuke CFC and the Radium Engineering FCST are quite expensive for what you get( iirc. 1000 pound for a basic unit with fuel cell but without fuellpumps/ levelsender/ fillerneck-flappervalve etc.).

    I have made one myself and the total cost for the parts is around 100pound for the topplate, fullpump mounts, swirlpot, 6pin fuel resistent bulkhead connector, Viton flapper valve and the fillerneck
    The (used) ATL fuel cell was around 180 pounds.
    It saves quite some money and it is an straightforward job..

    Good job on building one yourself, looks good!

    They?re not a cheap unit, no. The CFC on it?s own without pumps, sensor etc is c?550-600. The one I pictured with the tank comes in at around ?650, so a cheap tank to be fair, although not FIA approved, which doesn?t bother me anyway.

    I could even get one made for less that would be more than suitable for the job but there?s just something about the set up and tank I really like, I can?t explain it.

    This build is about function but not entirely over form. It?s very much about the journey for me (bloody should be, it?s taken long enough! Lol)

    Off topic but also on, I had my first vindaloo last night, so not all my holey bits are likeable today!
