Cheers guys! there's a huge amount of work to do but i'm loving every minute of it!

So far the front suspension turrets have been cut away and reinstated in there new position, the new engine mounts have also been fitted to the chassis and the front tubular sub frame is being made at the moment.

I have changed the design of the front bumper slightly to give proper ducting to the brakes and intercooler and slightly changed the front wings to vent more air from the inner arches.

The radiator will be mounted flat in the boot area and will be fed from carbon ducting using the whole of the rear quater windows.

The next major piece of moulding i have to do is to take a mould of the rear quaters so the can be remade in carbon can't wait to chop them off and feel that weight hit the floor as they will be heavier than standard anyway as all the extra metal that was used to enlarge them not to mention the filler to make them look nice.

Should have a few pics to post up this week.

Great project, but why the radiator in the boot? You overheating?

Yes weight distribution but ultimatley better cooling as the ducting will only cool the rad.

Still remember the you and the car from our first few trackdays and CATD.
Nice to see you're still a nutter

Best of everything with the car and you tracking it.
