    I started work on the templates for the side air inlet for the rear brakes. The lower part of the backing plate will accommodate a 50mm ID fitting which connects to the air pipe which feeds cool air over the brakes (one each side). The blue foam was cut and shaped to fit the backing plate and the curve of the window. Once I like the shape of the foam template a metal one will be made and this will be fitted to the door with the air vents cut into it. Andy

    New rear frames

    Thanks guy's

    For those who can remember I put the first set of frames for the front arches onto the rear and made a new set for the front (first picture). Now I am working on the rear of the car the slope of the frame on the old arches looked to shallow and would not blend in as well with the rest of the rear panels so I made a new frame with a greater slope.

    Thanks Mark and yes the plan is still for an ally body although changing from steel (roof/door shell etc.) to ally and joining them will be interesting. Andy
