I have one 1/2" tube running from the top of the structure on one side going down to the rear main x-member and only small silencer mounting between them. Rock solid......

The machined aluminium rod should be ready Thursday, so I'll fit these to the wing stays and then triangulate the structure to reinforce it, with more 10mm aluminium rod. Should be nice and light when finished.

Raised the front ride height, so the front wing's leading edge is now 90-100mm off the deck, as DJ intended.

Busy weekend.

Supercar Drivers Club meeting at Sytner Aston Martin in Nottingham. The DB3/S is rumoured to be worth £3M

Followed by dragging my family to Donington to see the Dukeries Rally today. Some very tasty machines on display. The blue Fiesta R5 was my favourite. But the MK2 Escorts were in abundance and going as quick as ever.
