After me complaining you hadn't updated the thread it looks like you're working towards finishing it before Christmas! Liking the simple but clever bending techniques, looks like it's worked pretty well.

I just watched the Westfield crash video, don't have a clue what you could have done differently in that situation - looked pretty heavy!

Yeah i put correction in and was waiting for it to bite....never came...shock collar unwound 40mm so tyre was not contacting tarmac...luckily tyres just plonked there not fixed...i got out and walked away...very lucky harnesse kept me planted in the seat which snapped in half.

Eunos coming along now fine...got the other side todo as well few patches underneathe...gotta take front wing off and patch from behind...new roof service and oil leaks...mot and body shop so still loads todo...

Looking good, ever thought about opening your own garage. Don't think I've asked this yet but what's the plan for the car, track day toy or Sunday best?

Quiet Sunday best sounds nice, I can only imagine why you went for a quiet exhaust

Sounds like a nice deal you've got there too with the Mk2 for occasional track use, NB's are growing on me I have to admit. That makes sense about doing just for fun, love the comment about French cars.
