Sweet looking tank that doesn't fit the return and breather fittings hit the spare wheel well and stop the tank sitting in the corret place so will need to be moved .
So it will have to go away again hopefully won't take as long this time.
Also now waiting on new front brake pistons and rebuild kit for it as after doing the rears the fronts started leaking too.
Starting to think this car doesn't want to go back on the road with out a fight...

Those facet pumps don't really flow enough, use two or a higher flow pump.
