Worked on the washer bottle as all cabling and correct plugs finished for the light and clock. Genuine 360 washer bottles are crazy money, even used ones  :o so after hours upon hours hunting the net I found one suitable. This one is thin and slightly shorter. Started off by making the cage for the bottle and then fitting to the mr2 shell I have. I’ve made it so it all just bolts together. Just needs powder coating gloss black. Then moved onto the filler neck. Nothing is straightforward and I had to shorten the 360 neck. Managed to get the filler on the frunk surround as near as possible as on genuine cars. I’ve adapted rubber water hoses to make up the pipe work. Now all done need to think of what else I can do away from the car.

That’s s a nice slim bottle Msark
Shame you can’t test it out fully until you have your car back home, but at least your a good way forward on the bottle.

Loving the proper Ferrari top too... 👍🏻

So just think out aloud here :  are you leaving the water bottle white, or are you considering painting it matt black, like I did on my red 430?

Plus, do you know if all the under nappies still fit ok? I presume not, until you can try it on your car?

Going to keep the washer bottle as it is, it’s like that on the 360 so staying that way ;D I’ve check measured and all looks good for clearing the nappy, I may once it’s fitted to the car add some additional side vents in the nappy. Just the filler cap to order and as usual no stock so two weeks from Italy  ::)

Hi Wayne, it’s the front under tray thingy ;D as in pic it’s a funny shape so just had to check it would clear. Also pic of completed washer bottle and filler neck.

Lee.  Nice idea to paint the water bottle black.  They always go yellow and painting it black hides this and also adds conformity to that area.

I was going to add about not being able to see how much water is in it, but then I remembered that on the SL based cars the only way you can see the bottle is take the front wing off.
Not all problems can be solved with gaffer tape.  For those there is WD40.
Not even gaffer tape can fix stupid, but it can mask the sound.

If you can’t buy it or steal it you have to make it.

Understand about painting it black and on some cars this is suitable, however got to keep it as genuine as possible. This bottle is spotless seeing as it’s 10 years old. If for some reason it doesn’t look like this in the future I will just replace. Rubber blank offs arrived today. This was to blank off the existing filler neck hole.

Washer bottle tested on my car and all good so the bracket was sent over for powdercoating. Then worked on stripping down the rear handbrake calipers so they could be painted. All the bolts and springs are going to be dipped. Also the handbrake brackets were fitted to the car. Lots of checking and testing to make sure all components fit and everything looks good. The new fully adjustable front end has also been fitted. Amazing bit of kit and this now means there are no spacers fitted to the car 8) just waiting for the 6 pot calipers to come back from being painted. When I bought them they were in an anodised red finish but as Lee and Barry said look like a sammon colour ::) when back the braided lines can be ordered. The exhaust set up is now being worked on before being dropped off for ceramic coating later next week.

Hi Darren it’s booked into few shows once completed so won’t be used that much but yes it will be driven, gulp  :o Handbrake parts came back from anodiser so the calipers were made up and temporarily fitted to the car as work starts on the drive shafts soon. Then brackets were made for the catch can as the one supplied made the can in the direct location of the petrol tank supply pipes ::) once made and powder coated it was fitted to the car. Also had the time to fit the washer bottle and the Ferrari interior light/clock.
