Yea, S2000 go the wrong way. It’s not a massive issue in a GTE once the seats are turned around, they already have a nice big rear window with a wiper.
And the "barn door" aero is unaffected... :lol:
Are you referring to Luke or the car?

XRF 976H ex Reliant press car

Great work Paul and thanks for posting. Can I ask what cutting implements you used on the various surfaces and joins to get such clean edges? I've recently done the strengthening in the sills of a coupe but cut them out from below using discs on a dremel which works fine, but the next body needs the...

Classic Restoration Show - NEC - March 22nd -24th

I was there opposite the Jowett stand and their team was amazing.
Show was quieter than before but still many interested, interesting and knowledgeable people.
Saw Mike, Speedy and Dave Peek. Not sure the show would be sustainable in future if the traders don't get the footfall?

You could speak to TTV Racing: http://ttvracing.com/products/?manufacturers=ford&engine=ford-essex-v6&type=flywheels They have always been very helpful. Rotational balancing for a V6 is "usually" recommended. Changing to a TTV flywheel when I rebuilt my engine made a positive improvement in terms of...

Thanks for giving us the background Phil.
When people stop posting you don't always know why, but this is very sad news.
Thoughts and good wishes go to his family.
RIP Richard
