Nothing makes an otherwise great custom-built car or motorcycle look shabbier than poorly or improperly mounted components, a rat's nest of wiring, or ill-conceived fabricated parts.

Whether it's mounting a line-lock or plumbing a fuel system, Scraba has the practical advice you need to really make your project shine.
In addition to guidance on mounting mechanical components, he also dispenses expert advice on such things as plumbing fluid connections and properly wiring electrical components.
