It’s from Rally Design, needs gluing with high temp adhesive. Joins taped with aluminium tape as used on ducting etc

Looking great, as ever. I do admire your workmanship. Mine is a bit more basic, :? I simply don't have your patience

Just fancied a change and I hate the new ‘tuner nut’ set up on the revolutions, just looks like an after thought and I had some come loose a couple of times. With its new engine I wanted a more aggressive restomod look

We’re beginning to see quite a few cars in the paddocks shod with Nankangs. Please let us know what you think of them.

The car’s looking great !
