I do like that colour - when it's tidied up it'll look very smart cool

Think I would substitute that solid piece of timber with a pole at the fron though, less strain on the hinge and corner....

Doesn't FCSS carry the struts any more?

Thanks, new struts from FCSS have been fitted so the wood is redundant now!

I was wondering if somebody could confirm what the object is in the attached photo - am I right in thinking it recycles vapours back into the engine in some form?
Obviously it’s broken so i’m not sure how important it is to deal with at the moment

Great, doesn’t sound important so that’ll go on the nice to have rather than the must do list!
