    Sprayed the body and fitted all panels. To save weight I didntwant to keep the motorised lights so picked up these Carbon look FRP twin lights, modified them to take the original covers fixed on top. Slim line racing carbon look mirrors again to save weight.

    Loving the custom arms, any pics of the available lock with steering rack and wheels on?

    Did you say you had a jig to make more? ;-)

    The arms certainly have created a lot of interest. Huge amount of hours and a few jigs to get exactly what I have there. Have been asked to make arms for lads which I would do but have to sort power steering, get offset rack spacers and cut and shut the knuckles always before I can actually test her out.

    They are a beautiful shape love the curves on them

    Cheers dude

    Thanks will definitely keep you in mind. Hopefully totally done by the start of summer.

    Thanks lad had to fit some timber in there somehow :)

    This is how she sits right now. Just waiting on a custom loom to be made up, some custom inter cooler pipes and fuel system plumbed and she will be ready for mapping all going well!!!!!

    Still have canards, splitter supports, wing and exhaust to fit as well.

    Thanks lad did my best.

    Will keep that in mind concentrating on just getting her finished now tho. How much would you want for them? Pm me

    Hopefully it will look even better on the track

    Sure will. Should have it finished and tested in the coming couple a months.

    Few little updates on this. All plumbing done. All an aeroquip fittings in the rear. Garrett 2871r turbo with turbosmart external waste gate fitted. Turbo elbow fabricated, all new gaskets fitted, intercooler pipes modified too to creat much tidier direct got to turbo and inlet manifold. HKS 740cc injectors and high pressure fuel rail fitted also. All that's left to do now engine wise is finish the wiring to the control panels and see what happens.

    What colour did you use to paint the cage/some of the suspension parts?

    Big fan of it!
