On a slightly different note, has anyone fitted this and been able to fit the spare wheel? My spare is coming out but it’s more of a precaution for going on a long run.

Does the Carrera 4 have a spare?

Thanks crash 7. I think my most economical way of getting the hose ends will be with cutting the ends of my old hoses off and having new AN fittings welded on, as per one of the photos. I have a welding shop very close by who will do small jobs like that for £15 and their quality is excellent.

Martin I work in a small engineering shop but I’m going to try the hose specialists first. I should know more in cost tomorrow as I’m hoping to get it sorted after work. I’m going to mount the pump below the abs pump on the passenger side as I saw a picture of another that had very basic brackets but still looked reasonably tidy. I think it was on aivars post on Facebook. It leaves a little floor space below which is probably useless but I want a tiger finish than just sticking it on the floor. I’ll also hope get the carpet back on nice and tidy to finish it off though I haven’t spent that much time measuring up. I can always make brackets to suit whatever I need.

I’ve chosen the passenger side simply as it’s an easier route for the pipe work. The original pipes run across that way so it dosnt disturb the original pipes coming from the rack.

I’ve a lot on this weekend so it’ll probably be next week before I get at it again.
I’ve no intention of looking at the wiring end of things until I’m well in with the build. I just want the steering in now so I can build up the rest of the front suspension etc and move on.

Good news today. I went to get the new pipe sorted. I tool the rack and pump with a rough measurement of 700mm of new pipe needed. This was for cutting the original rubber pipe and running right to the pump.

The hose guy wasn’t keen on this. Instead he wanted to cut the metal pipes as he said they would be easier and better. I didn’t argue. As this was the case, I only needed about 300-350mm of pipe. Not sure about this as I was caught in the hop but I can get a new piece easily if the size doesn’t work.

The cost?

That’s the best bit. £18 including a length of pipe for the return.

Can’t be bad at that. It’s still in the boot of the car sill get a picture up when I get some

Small update, nothing major as times tight atm. I’ve made a bracket up to house the pump and I’m happy with locating it beside the abs pump. The brake pipes will need a little tweek as well as the vacuum hose. This I think is the best place to allow me to fit the spare wheel. Pictures aren’t great but you get the idea.

Now you just need Mistercorn to create a speed controller for it to reduce the assistance as road speed increases using speed signal from the reluctor rings/sensors in the ABS system.

Have you got a full pic. I can't tell, but have you cut the metal pipes round the rack?

Hi Martin. I hadn’t thought about anything like that but I’d say it’ll just run as it is until I see how it goes

The metal pipe was simply chopped and flared with a new fitting. Just a similar job to doing brake pipes
