These are not the same panels Mr H.

The nose cone had a large slot in the front as well as an array of holes, the wing had 3 extra holes probably for some sort of key switch.... all now grp/resin / old nose cone section fitted to the replacement.

Watch this space for some Gold coming soon.

Nice work Ben. It'd be a shame to damage those. Take it easy next season :mrgreen:

Not sure I'll be taking it easy but will definitely not want to be hitting anything.
