PX600 airbox

Recommended Posts

Just finishing the air filter housing and I have a small snag, open to ideas. 

I do not want to cut the nose cone, don't mind cutting the bonnet (again).

Do you think a heat gun would make the GRP soft enough to bend or is there a spacer I could use to extend the back plate?

GRP is thermoset so heat won't soften it. Looks like you need a spacer, depending on the thickness could you make an MDF one?

Needs to move about 60mm.

Has any used Durafix welding rods, thinking I might be able to make an aluminium box.

Found this on eBay, should fit and should move the air inlet and filter into the cold air.

Job for tomorrow.

      Went for our (girlfriend and I) first proper hol on the weekend, was supposed to stay at Youth hostel in Brecon but got scuppered by their drive.(Rang them first and explained the problem, never mind.) The car performed brilliantly other than giving me a sore knee due to not enough leg room for me, did want to fit test the newly fitted hood, but also glad I did't get the opportunity.
      My main problems are filter/sump, from reading the forums I will be acquiring a 420 sump/pickup but was wondering about the remote oil kits. There is one on eBay by mocal, but wasn't sure what they are like. Can't seem to see anyone else comment on here. I was going for braided hoses and the 90degree pickup.
      Are the hoses going to be ok? Read somewhere that I could blow the hoses off with high pressure? Is this a real concern or an unfortunate experience for someone?
      Other kit I found was on a site where they fitted the k series rover engine to a morris minor, kit looks a bit better but a lot more expensive.
      Anyone have any experience of these.
      I also want to use the adjustable suspension on the super spec to lift front and rear but assume the suspension re set up won't be cheap?
      400 miles down, sneaked up to 4000rpm couple of times (tunnel near monmouth, was with a lotus evora....you just have to don't you ) looking forward to getting the engine run in!
      Ta for any thoughts
