You need to fabricate a bracket which spans the gap between the carbs
and provides the anchor point for the outer throttle cable. On my car
this has been rather crudely made (by DPO) from scratch, rather than by
chopping bits from the airbox.

I have added individual K & N filters to my +2.

They offer a "knock out" at the on the backing plate where a nylon elbow is
attached for crankcase ventilation. Should I run vent lines to both carbs or
only one?
