    That looks good and extremely complexed, the original is quite simple but of course is suited to the Hewland Trans. The original bolts to the side plates but mine bolts to a bracket on the top of the trans which is flat, however I do have my bolt spacing to suit the Hewland (in case I won Lotto)...

    Hi Andy, if you look on page 29 post 568 there is a few photos of the front clip support attachments, they have the brake ducts incorporated, attached to the top link point and at the bottom on the tub. At the front the original is a cup/hook thing, I have made a drop and slide back arrangement...

    I'm in full body prep mode now as I will be painting it at the end of the month. I have had to make some mods to the rear deck to clear the exhaust system. You will see in the attached photos the opening will be covered with an expanded mesh and I have molded in some brake duct intakes. Also I...

    That's looking really good Andrew. You have got through it much faster than I thought you would, a tribute to your skill. I'm going to have mine done by Christmas (even if it kills me) would cool to get both cars and Andrew Robinsons car together for a photo. I'm in body prep mode now and will...

    This is a link to see my engine on its early Dyno run, . This was just a warm up run I was too scared to stand in the room while it was pulling 7000+ rpm, there is a lot of steel going very fast if it lets go but it sounds great at at 7000rpm and it didn't let go. Got another photo will send...

    Managed to get these to work. First parts out of the mold, these are the first ones I have laid up myself, I had Andy's body Laid up by an expert. To be honest I think my effort was as good just took me longer.

    Hi Andy, always great to see progress and interesting to see how you are working round the differences in layout that our engine trans combo present. Looking forward to seeing how you do the rear suspension bracketry with that trans. The LG was designed for it so made life easy or the guys who...

    As always Udo your workmanship is outstanding. I'm still at it slowly but we have now had the engine running on the dyno and have a tune in it on Avgas, 685 ft-lbs @ 5500 and 700hp @ 7000 and it revs freely to 7500. Now assembling the trans and hope to get it in the car very soon. Keep up the...

    Make the Noise!!

    I have also been hooked on this, should be a serious little rocket ship can't wait to see it run. On another not too different note on RacecarsDirect.com there is a Ford Fiesta with a 500hp 4x4 Sierra Cosworth running gear shoe horned into it very well done and very cool Cheers Leon
