    This is not Elee's manifold just so you know. It is similar to what he was running though.

    I'll use the stock brackets for the original exhaust manifold to brace the turbo manifold.

    Yeah I'm considering clocking the turbo to point the cooler pipe down. Not sure on how I will do the piping yet. There's a number of options.

    Update:

    Hey guys, thought i'd show you what I've been working on the past couple of weeks.

    Its a triple A-Pillar Gauge Pod.

    Materials:
    Fibreglass/Resin/Catalyst, 3 Tow Ball Covers, T-Shirt Fabric, Glue (Hot Glue, Bostic Multi Bond, PlastiBond), Car Body Filler.




    Glue/Screw Tow Ball Covers in place. Test fit on car to make sure they point in the right position.




    Stretch T-Shirt material over the gauge pods and glue down to the right position. I made a very complex shape with 3 pieces of material glued down over the top of one another til I got the shape I wanted.



    Apply fibreglass to the material and hope your glue doesnt let go! I had a couple of attempts at this.

    Tips: Dont use Epoxy catalyst / resin along side a polyester one! Dont bother with spray glue - it just lets go when the resin hits it. Dont use too much resin in your first go. Use small amounts at a time and let it go hard.

    I then found a few ideas online about mixing a "milkshake" of Car Body Filler and Fibreglass Resin. Mix it to your desired consistency to make a thick yet sandable filler to do some final coats in.

    Tip: Make sure your fibreglass is strong before applying the "milkshake" as it will not add any structural strength to the gauge pod.

    Finally. Get some fibreglass mat and try to strengthen the inner walls of the material. Go nuts here as you're working with a place that is unseen.

    Pics:









    Enjoy.

    I'll post up more pics as I make more progress with it. Next step is to sand it back and apply some spray filler. I will also rework the areas in front of the gauges to make them look nice and smooth. The idea being I want this to look as OEM as possible.
