This year we will not do anything with the gearbox. There is a master at it costing much money. And this building is a private venture

This Saturday me and David worked hard. All welding inside the car got finished and David got the engine and gearbox out. After that, we continued with reinforcing the front strut towers.

So, after a 12-hour nightshift in the garage, we were really pleased with what we┤ve acheived. Take a look for yourselves!


Original strut tower

Hope this will help preventing bodyroll
