well i kind of started looking at 427 turbo jet engines .. like the kit says .. and soom realized the kit did not provide the hose from the top to the waterpump .. its a small bend below the top hose to the waterpump .. so i drilled holes and added the bend , actually had to put bras wire in the rubber hose to make the tight bend ...
then i wanted to add the heater hoses ... going from reference pics i made those .. and then changed the radiator hose .. i already knew it was just a tad to small .. but now with the heater hoses it looked stupid .. it was a challenge to find wire that was not t thick and not to thin .. found ome in my old cable collection lol ... it was the best option .. i stripped the wire out that was inside and changed the hose ... i think this looks nicer ..
i redid the positive wire and clamp on the battery the clamp looked horrible .. managed to make a nice bend clamp for the poitibve terminal as well , also in the valve covers i put tiny hollow bras tubes where breather filters could mount to .. maybe try to make one ? or a hose ? added a line to the inlet manifold non attached since it all gone there
i think mark is spot on glue the part together , fill the existing hole , maybe reinforce with a plate over that and drill a hole higher up ... tbh you also might consider making the inner wing / tubs thinner at the front to gain room to go a bit lower in the front ..or you could remove the inner wheel tubs at the front as they are detachable plastic ones in real life ... so they dont have any stuctural meaning ... then you could set it like you want in the front and remount the inner tubs (guards) at the right hight .. if the picture shows the final stance i think it looks lower in the back then the front , it should sit a tad lower in the front as in the back .. even if you would have to put it higher in the back .. i'm working at the same kit atm in weathered form and i know ou can also gain room by making all the parts fit together better , meaning the part have gap like you have between the suspension parts above the mounting hole in the front
