Fuel System Progress

Well Sam's nearly done with the fuel system, and has done a great job.

Bits and pieces...
Ok, we've completed a few things since the last update. Nothing too major, but it's all the little things that are taking up the time so it's good to get them out of the way.

After the trial fit of the front brakes everything went well and Sam put the rest of the kit on the car. Maltech came out and made me up some custom front lines to go with their rear lines, and supplied all the bolts to fit it up as I didn't have any.

Front kit consisting of:

CSC 4 Piston Calipers
CSC 343mm x 32mm Front 2 piece discs
Maltech braided lines
EBC Yellow Pads

Rear kit Consisting of:
Brembo R33 GT-R Rear Calipers
RDA Vented and Slotted rear discs
Unknown Pads (we'll see how they go)
Maltech braided lines

We also spent some time getting the fuel system sorted out. CAMS regulations require that the fuel system must be sectioned off from the cabin, which is usually quite simple in a sedan. Due to the 180SX being a coupe it becomes a touch more difficult.

I decided to have an enclosure made to house the surge tank, filter and pump and Sam came up with the idea to cover the boot floor in marine grade alloy to create a handy mounting for the enclosure, as well as keeping the fuel lines from the cabin by running them through to the spare wheel well and into the tank.

Making the template:
