    Yet another bilge setup for an rxp

    Here is my attempt at fitting an 800GPH rule to my RXP.

    First I stripped out the glovebox, made a paper template for switch, then lazer cut from stainless.

    Mock the switch in.

    Mount where you want your pump. I chose right side of pump tunnel.

    I had issues mounting the filter bottom of the pump to the ski, I tried a number of ways and the one that is working the best at the moment is the resin of a glass fibre kit. I drilled the holes in the pump cap slightly bigger so the resin seeps throught the holes securing it tight.

    I was planning on dual 500's so actually drilled 2 holes in the body already mirrored either side. I have connected the pipes with a Y connector. Hose ID is 19mm or 3/4 inch. This is the same for the hull skin outlets.

    I ran my 3 wires from the pump neatly in the original wiring loom, then up to glovebox. Run a live and an earth from battery to glovebox. I used a three core wire from back and a 2 core from front this just keeps a clean look.

    connect all your pipe work, mine is done in such away it follows the natural direction of pipe/skin fittings and is a good 2 inches from the exhaust.

    Needless to say use all stainless fittings. and also sealant on skin fittings

    refit glovebox, glovebox lid, upper deck and seat.

    slowly fill with water! dont be thick and fill hull bottom without soaking engine and watch it work.

    NOTE..... if it dont work TURN OFF tap! lol and check ur wiring joints and fuse

    Whole job done in 90mins, then went and attached pump when resin off the next day

    NOTE 2... Its always better to measure twice and cut once!

    Now I'm ready for the winter wave jumping

    19mm or 3/4 inch. pump only needs one but is the same for the 500 aswell as 800, so got room for another pump if needed

    I like everything besides the fact that you do not have a usable glovebox now. Man I love my glovebox! Nice work bro!

    yeah fair comment but I never use my glovebox so made the sacrifice, that and I think with a fuel commander in there at a later date will look sweet

    Thanks DDuck, I run a garage in the UK, MOT's repairs and rebuilds but I do have some knowledge and skill, with the odd hammer kicking about! the lazer cutting was thanks to a customers firm, so its who you know too.

    My thoughts exactly... gave up the entire glove box for a switch that can be mounted in the bottom of it Oh well... nice laser cut insert though
