Top man, you must have some ***** doing that to a Beetle engine. Get yourself down to RTTS, you'll be a God.

i have been thinking about the water injection tank i want to hide as much as i can so my thoughts are to cut the fuel tank in about a 1/4 of the way along and weld a bulkhead into it, weld it back up with a second filler neck for the water injection what do you think?

cheers andy
