Not much of an update but I've put the pedals back in and run the brake and clutch lines from them

Image

I got a few more fuel parts too so just sat them in the boot and made up some lines, obviously this isn't how it's going to me sitting, it will be a lot tidier and mounted on a level bracket. I've decided to use my holley pump as a lift pump for now as it's got a reasonable flow rate but if it's no good i can swap it out pretty easily. Main pump is a bosch 044

Did some tidying and mocking up of the fuel system.

Almost ready to come back out and paint everything, just waiting on some brackets

That looks mint, similar to what I'm hoping to do. Well done!

Got some paint on the boot and finished up the bits on the front today as well as painting a few more parts. Didn't fuss with the boot too much just threw stone guard and paint at it as it's going to be covered by all the fuel gear.

It's not my finest effort.. But for a boot it'll do and like I said, it's all covered

Image

More bits attached but the wind today put me off doing anything exciting.

Image

And for speed of getting things done I'm going with a standard bonnet and removable front for now. So hinges could go on

Image

Time and money may be hard to come by now though as I'm going to be spending the next couple of years in these things to begin what I hope will be a new career. I still want the mini done by early next year however!

Looking to be a pilot, it's a tough industry to be in but I want to challenge myself and I love driving/ flying things so why not.
