I've been following a radical rebuild of a 914 (my favourate Porsche), and he washed his manifold in the dishwasher, and his misses didn't mind!!

Hi

Glad you liked it Simon
Have my fuel tank and am making the straps for it.
Spent today running brake lines, fuel lines, and making wiring harness for motor, gearbox and fuel tank.
Would like it to stop raining when I go out side would make it easier.

I will add photos when the weather picks up
