    I did think about a tie bar so after these comments I will fit one. The bracket is bolted through the original top mount and so is not totally reliant on the weld, which would definitely not be strong enough without the bolt.

    I made a couple of tie bars to provide extra support for the new seat belt mounts. I used 25 x 4mm flat bar and bolted it through the damper mounting post in the boot.

    Fuel filler cap. The original cap has seen better days.

    I never really liked this cap, the large rubber grommet looked rough and the latch was a bit hit or miss. So out with the old and in with the new.

    It required a larger hole, and also may need some filler as the panel is curved. It has a lock on the inside, my main worry not being theft but jokers dropping things in!

    A length of ultra flexible fuel filler hose connects it to the tank. The original tank had the filler on the side and had a right angle bend, which made it a pain to fill. The new tank has the filler on top. I may fit a partition in the boot to protect the hoses and battery from anything sliding about and hide them from view.

    I got it from CBS, just be sitting down when you see the price!

    I liked how it was a complete assembly, usually you buy the cap then find a neck followed by a lock. I also liked the slip ring to hold it in place rather than have to drill holes for small bolts or screws.

    Where does your fuel tank actually vent to?

    One of the small hoses next to the filler is the vent. The other is the return from the swirl pot. I plan to run the vent up to a point higher than the filler then down to below the boot floor, I may fit a roll over vent valve aswell.

    Good idea. While we hope it won't be necessary it's always another thing not to worry about if it does go upside down.

    My main worry is that sharp cornering may induce a syphon without the valve.
