as the title says, bit of a mismatch really, but it seems to work ok for now!! ;)

heat, arming switch and fuel switch in red (illuminate when on!) chavtastic!
Image

WOT switch (taken from a corsa central locking switch....) very small and subtle!
Image

and activation switch, all switches must be activated to use system(was taken out of a corsa, was a fake engine start switch, liked it as its flush and cant be pressed in error!)
Image

solenoids(Trevor has already said they need moving, but it keeps the pipes short...!)
Image

dont like the blue and red pipe, so stick to the dark black!
Image
Image
Image

Bottle, wiznos heater, gauge, pressure switch, bottle from an old top gun kit (hmmm) cut and welded hinges to the brackets so the bottle can come out and be mounted correctly, on passenger side to offset my weight when i launch
Image

Fuel system
carter pump, big capacity 92 GPH@12psi
Image

regulater, just for nitrous, gauge with pre filter
Image

you can see he plate in this photo, and the xfire, will be spinning it round and blocking that hole next year, run 2 xfires side by side hopefully for two stages then
Image

one for trev, did we mention backfires!!lol
Image

hope you likey, its all good fun!

I'm surprised that micro switch works when relying on split pins to secure it. :shock:

i had to drill the casing for those, they are 1/8th pins and very tight, didnt have any m3 set screws at the time!

never lets me down!

If you notice there is a zip ty around the throttle shaft, that was its only failing, the shaft used to float a few thou and the lever would miss the switches, so had to add that spacer/cable tie!
