Gary, as it has already been established, this is an amazing build. I think you could bring back Restomod with this. (Actually I am so out of touch that I didn't know it was an "out" term).

I love your remote reservoirs and mount. I need to check exactly how far remote you can go with those as I am needing to put my Wilwood booster in my Transmission tunnel (it's a long story). I was planning to service it from under the car, but wonder if I can't get them just in front of the firewall.

Anyway, such nice work- one of my favorite threads.

The resos are pretty small. I bet you could find a spot. I am not sure that any distance is a problem as long as there are no high spots in the line. The master doesn't know how much line there is, it only sees it as more reso. They are small enough that you could probably even fit them in the right side well opposite of the wiper motor.

Thanks Gary- I was thinking that there may be a limit to the length of the extension (like sucking through a long straw), but I suppose that so long as the hose is running vertically this shouldn't be an issue. In that well opposite the wiper does sound perfect. Thanks again!

This weeks project was to remove the old school fuse box and wiring and integrate a new relay system and fuse system. This allowed me to meld the S38 EFI system into the 2800cs system and separate out the multiple circuits on 1 fuse scenario. There is still some cleaning up to do, but the car does fire off and all circuits work. New relays for low and high beam lighting, EFI, Main ign circuit, etc. Deleted load shedding relay and others.
