    I actually fits perfectly in the glove box so it'll be going there at this stage but I'm open to suggestions. Any pics of what other guys have done would be appreciated.
    I'll also be mounting the ICE on the inside of the glove box lid so it'll be easy to adjust the 2 step.

    HI
    Yes glove box is a good spot. My radio is mounted there. Yep still have to find a spot for 1x msd box and 1x spark program box .

    Yes u can use the original loom .
    Extras would only be electric fans
    All xtra looms could be overlayed and tapped/wrapped in
    If u want to get drastic just cut the engine loom going over the inner guard and join all electrics at that point .

    I'm just starting fresh as I'll have a speed hut dash and a fair bit of aftermarket things to wire. It'll just be easier to start new and hide everything and end up with less joints to fail.

    I'm planing to do pretty much the same thing on mine...keen to see how the speed hut dash looks.

    They look pretty decent. I always wanted auto meter ones but for a gps speedo it's like 700 or 800 snooks.

    It's been a while, Ive probably done a few more things than this but this is what I've been spending time on these days.

    Brake lines, Prop valve and booster.

    Radiator, fan and hoses.

    It's been real slow progress this year so far. All these fit outs take heaps of time mostly due to being un decided about a lot of things and just not knowing what I'm doing.
    I started a few jobs like the head liner that I think I'll just get a professional around to do. I also glued on the pillar vinyls and rapped my dash but both didn't stick well. Not sure if it's the glue I used or the vinyl but it looks shit and I'll need to re-do it again. Also been doing a bit of wiring which is also pretty slow going (also don't know what the **** I'm doing most of the time) but it's looking neat and quality for a rough fitter/turner. Currently running my trans cooler lines but undecided about the routing as the sedans don't have any holes lining up down the chassis to run through. I have the same sort of dilemma with the fuel pump position so was thinking of doing an in tank efi pump with a return reg so I don't have to weld a sump on, but can't get any info out of Holley or Aeromotive on if it will work or not. All the pumps claim they will suit both carb and efi but they all tell you they don't know what reg to use.

    ya getting there mate,,,,,, EFI is out of my knowledge area, but I believe that the pump/line fuel pressure needed is somewhere around 60psi ,,, so whether or not a carb pump will have that pressure and the volume required would be whet matters I would think,,, hope this helps

    Hi
    Becareful with the brake line . Modern "bundy" tube is zinc coated steel and the coating is very thin . Originally it was Terne coated and thick ,that's why it lasted a long time . Copper nickle is corrosion resistant . Used on all the euro cars because they salt there roads. Easy to bend and use . The other alternative is stainless but is hard to work .


    The injector pressure will be according to what kit /injectors your running and there flow pressure demands . There are calculators for this .
    If your running a carb just use a high flow mech pump eg quickfuel .
    Running a return line depends on the system requirements but always best to ,quieter ,pumps last longer ,better regulation of pressure .

    There was an aero motive pump conversion into a HQ style tank but the tank was made 2 inches deeper . Costly pump and tank conversion .
    Holley do a pickup absorption filter that attaches to the pickup. Acts like fuel well but costly . Seen pickup drilled thru tank and a gland nut situation.

    I've read a few guys just using a return reg to keep the pressure at 7psi and if you look at the fuel pump maps they will support more flow/HP to a carb I think the trick is to use one with a return port the same size or larger than the feed. I'm using a Holley return reg on the end of a fuel log and have a Holley HP150 but it's pretty hard to mount. It's surprising more companies don't do in tank carb pumps being the external ones are so large. I even thought of a good mechanical one to save the hassle. Not sure about the brake line but it looks like copper coated inside and was from areoflow (AF66-4316).

    HI Pete
    What are u going to run efi or carb ?

    Carb setup
    I`m running return with mech pump and return line .
    Pressure reg is either Proflow or Aero flow can`t remember . Regulator is relevant to fuel flow application.
    Factory 5/16 feed is now the return and have to fabricate a supply line 1/2 inch.

    I replaced diff mounted lines when I converted to rear disc in the 90`s . Lines are genuine GMH still shiny .
    Had to replace rear underbody line as I deleted the non return valve . This was a copper coated bundy tube . Anyways 25years on and the copper coated bundy is stuffed externally corroded ,just imagine the inside !! This was typically used at the time as an aftermarket replacement .

    Forward to 2018 I found copper-nickle . The rest is history . Now have complete 100% brake o/haul and changed to silicon fluid .

    I am running a Mallory bypass reg & the instructions state that the return line should be as large as or larger than the feed line. They provide a chart for the return line length. The longer the ret line is, the larger the diam the ret line needs to be to avoid restriction & pressure spikes.

    Hi
    Return line depends distance ,pump output, engine fuel usage . Typically electric carby/efi pumps need a big return because they can flow a lot . Mech pumps don`t flow as much typically . Holley does have a graph in there old catalogue [paper and PDF ] for supply line size . Typical rule of thumb is use the same size return as GTO mentioned . Plenty get away with 3/8 or even 5/16. Just watch your fuel pressure gauge for increasing pressure at idle . This is where the elec pumps can get into trouble with a small return .

    Are you running an EFI pump?. I'm running a carb. I've got -8 there and back and was going to run a Walbro or a Bosch with a holley hydromat.

    By the pump graphs @ 7psi either should flow around 320lph

    HI
    Considered a quick fuel mech pump . As higher performing mech pump as u will find anywhere .
