Latest problem is !!! i have lost my reading glasses and have to wait til 28/01/12 to get new ones !
Car needs to be be finished by 11/02/ for my first model show competition !
And i am waiting on delivery of braided lines and other parts to finish !
And heres where i am with engine detailing so far !
So during my next 1 week+ hiatus i thought i would research some fuel pump fuel line reference for info, but i am struggling to find anything !
Does anyone have any ref photos of F/C engines around 1979 period?

And now am working on 3rd Bug Catcher !
1st one the alclad finish wasnt good,
2bd one finish was nice, but nhabdked it to much when fitting injector hoses, and rubbed paint off the fins !!
And heres the third (paint finish not as good as second but no rub off on fins !)
