Last and final part ...

this is what you have to do, if you want to have the filler in the side of the car body work..and entering the boot.

Well as you can see it does not look all that neat ..
part of the trouble is ...that i could only work on one side of the car when the instalation took place ...
the other side was against the garage wall the fill pipe had to go on the working side ...

1. the main vent
2..the filler
3. the liquid gas outlet

the original set up ...had only number three shrouded. ...

i had to alter it a bit to keep mr lpga inspector now looks very untidy ...that is life ..

first pic shows general arangement .


next showing pipes arangement they pass through the floor .


here labled number three is the lpg liquid take off ........also showing how it obstructs hole ...


so causing me to put in pipe number one..the main vent


pipe number two had to be "T"d off so that the shroud around is also vented through the boot floor ...all vent pipes must run downhill from the tank rises or fold backs aloud....the pipe continues through the T unbroken............there is a hole that lines up to vent it ...the whole lot is glued together with epoxy.

here is the collection of pipes as they exit ...tied together and lower than boot floor so that any possible escaping gas cannot be blown up and into rear of car ...and make its way over to the other side ...and the exhaust.....thats my extra idea ...not in cop11

they pass thru adaptors like on pipe 3 earlier on


all the best.mark

Thats some lovely fabrication work there.
And it's clear that you have learned a lot from your previous installation.
I know my next installation will be better than my first (current) one.

Better be careful that the extra weight of all that billet dosn't negate your lpg savings though!
