so after a few good trips including a 1043 mile round trip to Silverstone classic and back a few wee changes have taken place, the paint was a 6 foot paint job so she has now been wrapped (bottled out of doing the nose) and a pair of clamshells. I am well pleased with her

Some people get a bit sniffy about clamshells - but I must admit that I like the look of them. They're also practical, in that they deflect more stones flying off the front wheels, and they keep people's legs away from the hottest part of the exhaust pipe.

If I could find a supplier who could make me a pair in the right colour I might well be tempted...





The older I get, the better I was...

Love the retro styling........

What a refreshing change.........I love the style you have gone for ! The whole thing harks back to what sevens looked like in the beginning. I have had two cars with clam shell wings , a Caterham and an F27 , my current car , an MK Indy has cycle wings in carbon fibre. Now I don't usually care for wire wheels , personally , but they look stunning on your car. The steering wheel is also very nice.......is it a particular make ? You should be proud of your efforts.....the whole package works really well.
