Keep doing a bit when I find time Had a good chat with Billy x-pack at the lakes (cheers mate) I decided to go with the Airtec rad/intercooler and a lovely bit of kit it looks too.
Got the other inner wing in and then opened up the front to get the rads to fit.
I'm thinking of making the slam panel removable and bolting it in! As there's not much room between the front pully and the fans ? Any advice welcome

Hi Paul,
Nice to meet up with you and Tom at the Lakes Tour. The Car is looking good. I would recommend you make that slam panel bolt in, with the fans fitted you will struggle for space. see you at croft.
Regards
Bill

Well managed a bit more progress and managed to get the seat bars welded in the right place and the seats trail fitted . Had a guinea pig test them 1st in the interest of health and safety of course
We had to close the garage this Saturday due to the tour de France closing the road! So cycled down to work and spent the morning painting the floor, I did have some help tho







Starting to take shape now it's got a bit of pent on it

Thanks for that. They look a good arch, and the fronts seem slightly wider than the ones on my car. Just a standard Ralloy tarmac arch then?

The fronts are standard but the rears are Ralloys Tarmac arches +1inch.
They fit a lot better than other makes I've done in the past but it does seem to be pot luck with arch fit in general

Had a few hours on the engine as I was sick of working on the shell
The engine had been rebuilt with a big wing sump but with a standard baffle so after a call to G19 they set about making me a gated baffle to fit my sump and a lovely job they did too




And after trimming the lip off the WCXM it all fits like its supposed to be there

Thought I better get back on the shell so painted the floor to up my enthusiasm up a bit
