Re: PW Tornado Build pics

Paul, that is the tightest and tidiest rear end I've seen (apart from some that are walking on two legs). Full marks, Sir, and go home early.

Re: PW Tornado Build pics

Time to make a retrofit kit?

I'm sure they would sell!

Paul

Nice looking rear end, very tidy !

Like the photos Paul, nice detail as usual, the 38mm x 38mm box sections removed must give a bit of weight saving? Any idea of the savings in kilograms.

Cheers

Re: PW Tornado Build pics

Paul,
once I stopped laughing over people praising your rear end (what is this forum coming to?) I had a look at the pictures of you car and was most impressed
Clearly a lot of effort in this, and the result is impressive with coolers and all, well done.

Picking up on some earlier comments on the brakes, I have the HiSpec Billet 4 Pots on standard Halibrand replica 3 piece 15" wheels. They just fit with Wilwood 310mm discs, as do 15" fronts with Wilwood Superlite calipers.


best regards
Dave

Re: PW Tornado Build pics

Hmmm retrofit kit - not that straightforward as the ally panel has to allign with the rear clip, my guess would be that every car is different!

Not really any weight saving on this - not that this was my motivation. The issue is that although the cradle and brackets are about 2 kg lighter than the factory items once you rivet on an ally panel its pretty much the same overall.

Yep Dave on the brakes its a bit of a squeeze on 15's I could go a bit bigger on the fronts with my 17's.

Re: PW Tornado Build pics

Time to get the car ready for the next season - starting with a new cast ally alternator bracket.

Re: PW Tornado Build pics

that looks like a strong solution, very rigid I guess.
