Progress...of sorts

As you can see the panelling is moving forwards - all be it slowly. However, I had a bit of a dilemma with the floor panel. The instructions state it should go from the bottom of the rear bulkhead to the cross member just in front of the fuel tank. However, having stared at it for about 2 hrs, I can't think of a good reason why a). you would not go right to the front of the chassis, and b). why you wouldn't extend it into the engine bay (at least to cover the two triangle side sections of the chassis and the area just behind the rear bulk head.

I suspect both these areas would act a stone / mud collector, but they would almost certainly also improve the aero package, and to some extent keep the engine cleaner.

Anyway, for now, I have stuck with the instructions with the theory that I could always add the panels later.

Chassis front

 Chassis rear
I offered the side pod just to get an understanding of how and where it fits. The bottom sits on the floor panel (that is extended out from the chassis by 30mm), the top sits on a piece of angled alloy.

Also, I've completed the rear bulk head panels:


  1. Looking at the end of your pedal box it looks like you have twin master cyclinder brakes. Was that something you asked for, or do they all come like that? Or have I got this wrong?

  2. Spot on roger.....they actually come with the provision for twin master cylinders. Also comes with pedals and a balance bar....I have two wilwood master cylinders itching to get to their new home :-)

  3. It was a master-stroke getting your chassis in bare metal. I had my Fury chassis supplied in powder coat and regretted it imediately!
