Engine bay tidy

Having seen some really nice tidy engine bays,  I decided to take a look at mine, and see if I could improve in the view that already contains a mighty xflow ;)

Main thing I always got drawn to, was the return pipe from the thermostat to the header tank, basically a bit of hand bent copper tube running over the exhaust header.

So, had a think and looked at other cars, and a nice hardline properly clipped down as per a photo on this forum was the way to go.

This was the inspiration picture

Bit of 10mm alloy tube, some blue silicone pipe, couple of P clips, and a hand pipe bender.

Also routed the plug leads differently, need to source some nice clips for the leads now.
