Well pleased with the workmanship Irish GTR

Cheers John:thumbsup:

I managed to take a mould of the rear quaters this week, i still need to prep the moulds as in the pic you can see they've came straight off the car and will need trimming and a dose of wet and dry.

I coudn't help my self in removing the passenger side rear quater and seat belt holder to see how much it weighed, 12kg's well pleased with that as the other side will weigh more with the fuel filler area so approx 25kg's out and hopfully not to much back in.

Hi Dean, nice one mate you getting the RK 3ltr as well then? what gearbox you going for? Once i've finished Rons and mine i'll be up for making anything you want mate.

I'll be making all our parts from pre preg carbon so will be ultra light.

Ron and my engine are essentially the same but we've both chose to do our setup's slightly different will be good to see the differences if any and who's chose right lol.

When do you think the engine will be going in?

i will be getting ron to start the 3litre with the dry sump etc end of july. also going for the hollenger box. but ron said the new os giken box isnt to bad. i think i am right in saying darren is using that box at the mo but i prefer the hollenger as i know its the best box out. i would like to go bigger cc's still but i will have a chat to ron once i get some money together to discuss ...lol.

i would want pre preg carbon doors and front wings and bonnett, boot and a new spoiler blade. could you do undertrays to

Cool mate it's going to be a serious bit of kit then:thumbsup: Darren, Ron and myself all have Holingers which i think they're the best but Steven's car has the latest OSG which Ron say feel's rearly good and not like any other OSG he's driven.

I can make anything you want give us a bell or come over some time to discuss what you need.

Cheers
Neil
