Didn’t they have any clear Perspex in stock. That pattern will be very annoying :mrgreen:

So I set to today fitting some bracing sections and after lots of trial and error I'm nearly there. The a...

I blame Steve Oakes :D

SS1 diff mount help

All the hard copy history went when I sold the car so all I have is a few digital photos. If you PM me your email address I'll send what I have. It's a shame but I never started a project thread on that car on here so remember very little. It was an Ebay purchase and the NS rear trailing arm failed ...

Can’t you just leave them plywood and draw the side profile of Joshes head on it?

I can’t take any credit for mine - they’re from Craig’s Batmobile.
