Thanks:) As I'd said in the introduction bit I have a carbon wing to put on, just getting some alloy uprights made. Then I'd like to give all suspension a good going over, possibly new wishbones definitely new bushes, anti roll bar. I'll see what the quantum a are like and decide if I want them rebuilt with different springs or not.


So there's plenty I need to crack on with. I also need an oil cooler and filter relocation kit. Sheesh the list never ends!!

It actually looks good without the rear spoiler on at all. (runs for cover)

Yes, it's only taken me 2yrs to get mine done, well almost...

Quantums fitted. New clutch trunion and bushes fitted and rear wing fitted.

Not entirely convinced, it looks a bit extreme. Even more so in the flesh.
