          Yeah I'm pretty much reliving my youth through this project as well. Is this what a mid-life crisis looks like for car guys?

              i was going to quote your comment, but that would give me away as a lurker.

              great to see the progress on the car

                    Some more #content for all you lurkers. I've got the Celica pretty much sorted for now so it's time to roll up my sleeves and continue putting the Supra back together. My clamp thing for the fuel filter arrived, so I put that together along with the check valve I bought recently:



                    The clamp is slightly large for the filter I have but I shimmed it a bit and it works well enough:



                    I was planning to mount it to the floorpan just above the diff but that was going to be a pain to do with all the stuff in the way, so I put it just in front of the rear subframe near where the hard lines end:



                    With that done I can work on cutting hoses to length and clamping them in place:



                    Gotta love nutserts, makes it (relatively) easy to get a neat install. Still some fiddly work though, took me a couple of hours to sort out the above and there's probably another two or three hours before I've completed the path from the hard line to the tank. It's looking good so far though!

                      WTF man? You didn't get the subframe and swaybay hardware re-plated?

                      :D

                        Yeah will not get you marks on the concourse.

                        It is looking great man, will be good to see it run again.

                          Haha yeah I am getting a bit slack, but piss98 will be pleased to know I painted the fuel tank straps:



                          And now the fuel tank is done, at least I hope so:



                          Hoses from the tank to the filter are done:





                          I have to change the angle of the hard line a bit so I can join it up to the filter without putting a loop of hose between them, but that's about all I need to do for the under body stuff now. But that will have to wait for a bit because the Celica is going up on the hoist for a while. Shouldn't be too long though, at least I hope so!

                            This is my basic plan with the front end of the hard line:





                            I'm trying to avoid putting an extra short length of hose in there to save costs, so I want to attach the Y-piece and flex fuel sensor to the hard line directly. I haven't attached anything permanently yet, but the idea is that I'll wait until the hard line is permanently clamped down in its final position, then line up the flex fuel sensor (with the AN fittings still slightly loose) so it's in a convenient location against the chassis rail, then mark the two bolt hole locations on the bracket and put some nutserts in there. Once that bracket is bolted down the whole assembly should be fairly secure and I'll tighten the AN fittings. After that I can run two hoses from here to the fuel rail inlets.

                            Can anyone see a problem with this plan?

                                This is the best part about old project cars! Mine are all the same - I'm doing them exactly the way I wanted to do them when I was 18 but didn't have any money.

                                At some stage you just have to accept that the car you wanted to build when you were 18 is exactly the same as the car you want to build when you're 40. You can just do it better.
