    Couple of engine bay bits added

    Just fitted my stainless relay cover, fuse cover and heat shield that I got from 'rustyarches' on here and one of Pete''s oil caps.

    The heat shield is a work of art, 1000 times better than the Promotasport one I had before.

    Oh poo Lee I hope you haven't told me duff info. I just this minute opened a box with my new Samco hoses in, remember this

    I followed your advise and went for the 6mm although they only did 6.5mm. However your pics clearly show you've got 8mm hoses on, please tell me my 6.5mm ones will fit.

    The 8mm jublee wouldnt go tight enough.

    The 8mm hose pushes on ok but your 6.5mm will probably be a bit better.

    Sorry Lee I read your reply as being that the 8mm hoses were too slack and you'd replaced them with 6mm ones. I've also got some jubilee clips so they should be even tighter
    Just remembered I've got my old header tank lying around, I'll go test the fit now I think.

    Well they fit bit tight and would need a little lube on them to get them to fit easier but no probs otherwise.
