    Did a bit more this evening and made part 2 of the needlessly complex catch can mount. Just need to drill some holes, pop rivet the two halves permanently and bolt it up to the two threaded holes already in the frame rail. The light was terrible but here's the pics

    I've also ordered some slightly slimmer profile hoses to connect it all up with as it's starting to be a bit congested in there. Next thing on the menu is finishing up the radiator ducting....

    Don't worry, This use to be the hobo build, but then Astro had a revelation and rose to the rank of some sort of craftmaster from the turbo goddess.
    So there is hope, for all of us, one day we will be able to do shit properly... one day.

    But that's what makes it unique and unrivaled in terms of customization

    Colin i just found this article on my wonders around the web.

    I know you were doing your oil catch can install, so thought it might make for a good read and help yourself / others.

    Looks like i should get a twin catch can set up now if its to be believed!
