    Some nice parts there man, how are you finding the ride on the poly bushes?

    Most people use their "Project Log" as their build thread so I merged it into the existing thread from the garage.

    That's quite a small LPG tank for a big car. I can get 50 litres LPG in mine. As you just this see from my signature I do a lot of LPG installs, especially on Hondas, In fact just this last weekend fitted a 74litre water capacity tank to an Accord Type-S, which we are expecting should take about 60 litres LPG.
    Haven't got that car on the road yet to fill it and test it.

    I was actually thinking of removing mine and replacing it with same large tank, so will have a spare 50 litre tank soon if you fancy changing yours. Frequent trips to gas station can be very annoying.

    sorry mate im not interested in going any bigger..don't see the point in losing my boot space.220 miles is a weeks driving for me and there is an lpg station at the end of my lane.IIRC a 50 ltr tank can only hold around 35-40 ltrs anyway

    Mine takes 50 litres LPG so probably a 60 litre tank but I do 80 miles a day so currently fill up every three days, hence wanting to go bigger.

    I can make it central, but I'd need an image showing the entire caliper already in order to not cut off the caliper.

    EDIT: Used your original upload, still can't centre it vertically as there wasn't enough image.

    Replaced, still can't vertically center with the image being cut off so close to the bottom.

    Wheel bearings aren't that common failures on the CL9s, surprised to here that. The other two kinda expected :Smile:
