I cracked on with the front-rear pipe when I got home, and think I’ve been pretty successful and rescuing it. I removed it, re-routed it closer to the tunnel at the front and spent some time straightening it out better.
I just wish I’d have gotten it right the first time! Never matter though, I’ll tidy up the excess silicone tomorrow then hopefully get the chassis flipped the right way and I can carry on with panelling. All in, I’ve spent 9 hours on brake pipes alone which is a touch excessive. Oops!
By some miracle though, the build is still on track. I have of course pretty much lost that month I had in hand.
