Wide Arch Phoenix is done

Car is back, sadly the colour I told them to use is somewhat off what the gel-coat was so it is more orange in patches. Rob Johnstone Motorsport have done a great job in a short time.

That is a stunning looking car. Very mean and purposeful. I like it.





Why do they call Port Harcourt "The Garden City"?...... Becauase they can't spell Stramash.

Those are actually F3 slicks on the back. I have the full set of A15 Avon sprint slicks in the garage. Brighton should be interesting this year.

Jeff, a non bodykit related question, which looks very nice by the way.

It looks like your rads have use an exit up through the front of the bonnet buldge. How does the ducting work with the inboard front shocks? Does it have a big gap where they are or funnel the air through the small gap inbetween the coil overs.





Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!

There is no ducting behind the rads.

about 4" in total across the rear arches. The front has come out 30mm on the wishbones and it is running 8J front wheels compared with 6J previously.

In the words of Chris Kamala, unbelievable Jeff.

It looks brilliant. Great work by Rob.
Can't wait to see it in the flesh.

Jeff,

it looks much more than that,. in fact it looks like it wont fit in the garage

Any plans to take some moulds off it?

Had not planned to get a mould, I doubt there would be much take up to be honest.
