Would make it easier but not a huge worry, don't mind the extra work gearbox is at the back of the car fella. You dont have to touch it. Detach the prop and i...

Re: Fibreglass Front Wings

AFAIK thats the only difference yeah, hat and a little mounting point for the metal bar below the headlights on mk2s. I have started (nearly finished) prepping wings for moulding, but uni and work have got in the way. After formula student is over I can get cracking on jobs. I have a fair bit I need...

Re: All must go! 343 doors Chrome bumpers Smiths etc CHEAP!

Sorry I meant miles from anywhere I could get too :lol: I dunno.

Im after the rear axle, the lower strips below the headlights, but if I can think of anything else, I'll let you know. Assuming the 360 lower arms are the same as the 340 ones I'll have those too.
