It's on one ramp on the front so the rear looks jacked up. Wait till it comes back with the body kit on it...

You going to split the body and add a bit in the middle to widen it?

That is good to hear because the wheels don't fit the car like that.

It will certainly look good once the arches can contain the wheels!





Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!

And I came here to defend my wife's backside only to find out this thread's about a car's back end.

I like it, but like others said, more pics.





I drive therefore I am.

Ahh, but the torque from the engine will twist it level under acceleration.

It will be ground away and then glassed in.

In the first instance it will be rattle can red but I'm thinking of a Martini inspired wrap at some point.

Jeff would probably counter that with the fact he has lost weight so it should now read '641 BHP per ton'

Day 5

Day 5 photos, moving along. I'm pretty impressed how the back is shaping up as that was the area I was concerned about. Rob Johnson is going to extend the front wishbones by 30mm to move the front wheel out to fill the arch and be inline with the rears.
