Well, its been a while ah?

Been very bussy with the last project for getting my bachelor. 10 June I will graduated. So the 360 is not going very fast.. However, I want the 360 being perfect.

Sound deadning removal looks like the most rubbishest job ever.

Look forward to seeing this progress, seems as though you are doing sterling work already.

Cage to strut towers should be nice, but thats not what I want to do with the bolt-in cage. Imo it should be a welded cage. Maybe I still go for a full welded cage, but it is a matter of money.. All the FIA-spec things are massive expensive. We will see :)

Ok.
If you go with bolt in worth plating bulkhead and brace from bulkhead plate to strut tower.

Take it you'll be on gravel???

Well, we dont have gravel rally's over here. So the carsetup will be based on tarmac.

Some rally's are partly off-road, but not in the sprint-championship I will be driving the first year(s).
