    Don't know if you recall but I had this sock-type airfilter fitted:



    I've done a bit of crude testing, and the air flow is pretty poor. Well, it probably flows ok overall but it diffuses the flow so much that you can barely feel a compressed air gun blowing from the other side. So I've come up with this agricultural arrangement. It isn't flash but I'll get it on the dyno again and go for a tidier Mkll version if it makes a difference:



    The filter medium is loosely woven nylon that passes air much more readily than the foam:



    And I'm going to seal the edges of the frame/airbox against the tank with this adhesive foam, which is fairly firm and should help support the tank:



    The ol' tractor has the Corsa style intake so no subframe to mount the air temp sensor off. It's mounted like this at the moment, seems to be ok so far, but I'll keep it in mind if things start going screwy as it heat soaks on the dummy grid or such like:



    Thanks for reminding me! I snaffled some foil insulation material from work (SSSSSH!) and must fit it.

    The new tank has the front mount pins, need to manufacture the reciprocal pins to mount somewhere as there is nothing to strap it too at present.

    Just got home from a few weeks away at work, spent the last few days catching up on the missus "to do" list (happy wife = happy life) but should be able to get stuck in the next couple of days. (famous last words...)
    I did this.

    Unfair ruptured tank. The next model had a Kevlar mat added to the C/F. The good old RR tank is just bit on the under built side. Light but! Donít crash.
