I got a private message asking for support for this site my first question is this for real and if so please post a tax ID number for all to see. Layout ways of support for the site.
It’s legit. Anyone that knows me knows I am a straight shooter.

I have the hardest time reaching the SLC fans on this forum because most of them only come to the SLC sub forum.Anyhow, that’s why I sent the message because I’m afraid a large percentage are reading on the normal forums thus are unaware of the operational side of of this site.

Update Fuel System complete less the back ordered inline fuel filter I had to modify the tank to install an in tank fuel pump, and then everything else fell into place. I installed the Tank's Company in tank fuel pump because of it's reliability and quiet running nature just like OEM. Next onto the Coolant system.

Looks great Larry, how are you going to powder coat your calipers, are you breaking them down or leave assembled?
 
Ok drivers side done now onto the passenger side. Joel I kept the calipers together for powder coating and I used alum foil and the dust boots to block sand and powder from entering the cylinder bores if any sand happens to find it's way in I vacuum it out. I have used the Eastwood powder coating equipment since it came out and as long as your surface prep is done correctly it works great. Now I am just waiting for new Brembo Stickers to come in the mail. I built a small angle iron support fixture to hold the oven tray and the powder coating equipment and to also capture the powder it works great

Copper scares me in cars. Heat cycle and vibration might lead to fragility of the pipe. Unsure if true, but have not seen copper on race car.

You won't find copper in aircraft, either. Pressure cycling or vibration is a killer for copper, it work hardens and then fractures. In quasi-static pressure applications such as Larry mentions, it is OK. Another reason not to use copper for fuel lines is that it is catalytic to gasoline. Copper accelerates the deterioration of fuel.
