Im going for a superclean look with everything shaved/relocated in the Bay.

 

Here are some brackets I made for the Ignition Leads.

 

1. Cut it out of 2mm Aluminum Sheet and drill hole for Valve Cover bolt.

Good stuff Benny.

Most guys wouldn't be bothered with making something like those brackets.

Did you say you made your own leads for that? I know the standard lengths are too short to run like that.

Thanks Guys,

 

I dont mind spending the time to get it right.

 

The leads were custom from autobarn ( the longest i could get) then cut to size and re-terminated.

Hey RB,

 

Longest off the shelf are 42" i needed one custom ordered from the manufacturer at 45" for cylinder 6. I just cut the old ends off straightened out the connectors and re-terminated them. When these get old i will order a roll of 10mm cable and fittings and do it all myself.

Well its finally time for an update!! Have moved house now and am still getting the shed setup, things have been very busy with work and a a baby on the way, trying to get the zed finished before it does!!

 

Anyway after waiting for absolutely forever and being told so many different dates of when my wheels would arrive they finally arrived today ;D ;D ;D ;D

 

I raced down to the importer to get them, then found a tyre shop about to close there doors to mount of my tires quickly. Now the purists will hate but im a fan!! Obviously will need the mega ZG's to tuck them in.

 

This is the end result-

Hey Benny

 

Have to be honest and reserve my opinion until the flares are on, but I dont mind them, one question though.............

 

Being a pimped out ride now, Is that what pimps do with anything less than a $50 note when theirs Ho's pay them?
