Sorting out the catch can pipework.

First on the list was a billet aluminium breather adapter, and -AN fittings to go with it:

The adapter (with AN-10 thread) with an AN-10 to AN-12 reducer so I could use AN-12 pipe

Next some AN-12 nylon braided hose and AN-12 90 degree swivel elbow

Assembled and ready

And fitted in place

I relocated the catch can to behind the battery on a bracket made out of a one I bought from a DIY shop. It's meant for building house walls with.

I also painted the blue tee, but it ended up hidden anyway!

Final location. It's still not 100%, there's a bit more tidying to do.

Coolant expansion line

There was a spare hard line on top of the intake manifold after the evap system tidy up which I wanted to remove, but it was welded to one of the coolant pipes. So I ran some AN-6 steel braided pipe under the manifold to replace that.
