Hey Fred

I got your email regarding setting up a WVO system with return lines. Did you send two emails or one? I think I only got the last one.... Anyway I would like to know how you ran the fuel/coolant lines, how they are supported under or in the vehicle and how many/how big were the holes you had to make in your car. Thanks, RT

Hey RT,

Been out of town for about 10 days (lounging on a cruise ship wondering how many gallons THAT sucker uses!).

Anyway, I'll check my "sent" mail and see what I tried to send to you. I've been meaning to go back and tidy up some of the hoses but I just keep driving it instead.

Real quick I can tell you NOT to cut a hole in the trunk floor. I did that first out of habit (put kits in two VW's before) only to find that I couldn't run the coolant hoses past the independent rear suspension / differential / axles on the Benz. At least the patched hole is under the trunk carpet! I cut a hole in the floor under the left rear passenger seat cushion. One hole about 2.5 inches in diameter. (Might be possible to cut two smaller holes just large enough to pass each 5/8" ID heater hose through.) Anyway, that's the only hole I had to cut anywhere.

I'll resend whatever I have tomorrow.

Good to see you back Fred. I have started my conversion now - I've found your pictures and experience very helpful. I did make some slight mods to your approach just out of my own Type-A nature I liked the idea of going through the shock access hole into the trunk, but since I don't know the age of the suspension on this car, I was worried about having to back out the hoses in the case of needing to get access to the top of the shock. So I simply took a Dremel with a Rotozip and extended the shock access hole up toward the rectangular wire passthrough to its upper right (looking from the rear seat). I then lined that hole and the hole in the floor under the seat (like yours) with a "grommet" of split fuel line glued on with silicone adhesive to prevent chafing of the hoses. I went with your idea of sump pump hose as an outer liner for the heater hoses - great idea. It really makes the hoses easy to secure, provides some crush protection, etc. I now have the tank fully installed and strapped into the trunk and hoses run to the front - now the rest of the work is all under the hood... good weekend project. I have been following your lead and documenting on digicam as I go - I will write up my experience and post it somewhere when I have enough to be useful.
