With the engine running now, it`s time to plumb-in the fire extinquisher. There are two settings, road and track.
- Road: with both power isolation and extinguisher triggered only from internal cabin buttons
- Track: triggering possible from both internal and external buttons
There are extinguisher nozzles for cabin footwell and engine compartment

Decision time for the project on whether or not to go for the BPR #22 GT1 optic or not...

This was one of the original project objectives, but as the car may be sold next year it`s time to decide if that is warranted.  The decal set is all prepared, so it is extremely tempting to go that way.

Leave them off then give the new owner the option of you putting them on if he wishes :thumbup:

Plumbed-in with the pump and cooler circuit between the drain and fill points.
