Day 13 - Breather & Expansion Bottle Fitment (2 hours)

Just a few small jobs for the day, which as usual take longer than you ever expect! :-)

Job 44 - Breather Bottle Fitment

This was a nerve racking job, involving more drilling into the chassis. The difficulty being the location and trying to get a drill into the area.

Job 45 - Expansion Bottle

An easy job, but in order to get the pipe routing correct, you have to position the mount sideways as in the picture above. I hadn't realised, but the chassis is threaded for bolt to screw in to.

Job 46 - Heater Valve Cable

Following my earlier task fitting the Breather Bottle, I was feeling brave with the drill so I decided it was time to drill the hole for the Heater Valve Cable. This was a case of drilling through the bulkhead into the passenger compartment. I'm not sure if this is done for you if you specify a heater at order stage. Fortunately I drilled it in the right location.
