    I wish you'd designed the mounts using a CAD tool, and 3D printed the angled mirror mounts.
    That way I could print my own set - without having to inhale the P40 Dust. :coat:

    Great work BTW.

    Yes, it's steel. Use of steel is a compromise. An Ali tank would need to be made off-site by a different supplier, then fitted by Flatlands.
    There is a lot that could go wrong with that kind of...

    I take the point. I will be having a anti-flop bracket of some sort at the rear,
    (I'm not using the fibreglass brackets that came with the kit).
    Flatlands mentioned attaching a bracket further...

    I am having a custom Fuel tank mounted on the chassis,
    it is slightly larger than stock, at 50 Litres capacity.

    Update from Flatlands:
    I bought a CSP Torque bar kit, it made sense for suporting a heavier Type 4 Engine,
    As ever it wasn't a bolt-on fit, the 'ears' at the shock mount needed extending to clear...

    Hi Dave, I can't help with your request but I hope something comes up for you.

    Hi Dirk, I'd disagree with the bit about parts being difficult to find ... but I agree with everything else ;-)
    I paid GBP 1k for the engine.

    Hello mate, Well, no real benefits for the T4 engine compared to the Scooby ... the T4 has a good rep in Air-cooled VW circles as a bomb-proof lump, as has the Scooby of course.

    This is the 2.0L Type 4 lump I plan on fitting.
