Not sure I would sell it guys, maybe once I’ve sorted the 360 cover out. Limited time on the car this weekend but worked on the rear handbrakes. Barry had made a jig a while back so the whole carrier etc was easier to work on in the vice. Was a case of making sure the caliper missed all other components. The template has been made and passed onto the engineer. Once the adapters are back they just need powdercoating and fitting to the car. Another tricky part of the build done

Nice mate

Look amazing on the discs like that.
That bracket that Barry mocked up was a great fit, and works a treat.
Just shows you how tight things are though when you look carefully at where the callipers sits..  :o

Your not kidding it’s seriously tight but only place it could go, ideally would of liked it at 7pm position like the genuine cars but no chance due to space etc.

Another big thanks to lee for sorting out a front brace. With a bit shaved off the bonnet catch we were able to get it to fit :D BUT this was only because my bonnet catch is different to others as its shorter. Lee has checked measured on his and it won’t work without modifying. Going to get the brace powdercoated Black (sorry lee) and then fit the flocked covers in which will hide a majority of the brace.

Works are now done to the rear bumper, we had to cut out additional vents in the diffuser so the intercooler heat can escape, also cut out for the new anti roll bar.  The hole in the diffuser for the mr2 cat has been fibreglassed back in as the hole is no longer needed. Barry has designed and fabricated a rear frame that secures the bumper, intercooler and the rear deck brackets. This means no flex in the rear of the car. The frame has been made so it can be unbolted, but also just the bumper can be removed so access is easier for maintenance. Amazing work. The rear bumper has been repainted and just the mesh to fit at the weekend.
