The PIAA ones from Demon Tweeks just required an earth, which I ran to the mounting bracket. Easy peasy.

This is great. I have added wrapping my exhaust primaries to the list now after reading #14 Tom B. Anyone got advice on what kit for wrapping to get? I don't want them to come undone.

Also, why longer wheel studs Tom?

I like the oil bottle solution and did something similar with my tyre goo using velcro straps riveted to the inner arch skin on the driverside.

Once upon a time I organised a Bulk Buy for tool tubes. Among other things they will carry a cylindrical oil bottle.

The factory jack and handle can be fitted in front of the heater.

Spare cables can be tied to chassis tubes.

A 1L "Sigg" bottle is a perfect fit in a tool tube with a little space to spare for pvc gloves and a couple of rags, a nice alternative way to carry some spare oil.

Longer wheel studs are to give more insurance against loosing your nuts! 

I cant remember what wrapping kit I used, suggest checking out Demon Tweaks or similar.  There is a heated debate about using wrap, as some say it retains heat in the head, but I've run it for years and not had a problem so far.  It helps stop my starter wiring, which is ~1cm from primary, from melting / embrittling.
