This piece has to be removed to allow angle mount to fit correctly. Air con. tube bent to shape dissappears in through side of radiator/condensor mounts.

View from the top, space aplenty, and NO, the horns are not staying there.They are just out of the way at present, but will be re-located when I have made the Fibreglass slam panel.

This is why I used the rubber mounts. The frame is actually on an angle, which causes the intercooler to hang back, the mounts correct this and keep it steady even more so when pipes are attached.

View of Oil Catch-Can. Attached with the advise of Dave Mochnik(greatly appreciated), I made the bracket from Aluminium Flat bar. I also made the Battery Holder out of the same material.

Passenger side from the top. The space still has to accomodate my pod filter, still plenty of room.

Drivers' side from the top. A bit of a sqeeze, but it's as snug as a bug in a rug. Had to remove over flow tank to get it in because of pipe being one piece.
