Dropped the fuel tank and got them pipes out, the one in the bottom pic was leaking where the bracket is soldered on.

Taking the bumpers and wings off the track car for now untill i get the bodykit resprayed.
Nearly there, need the glass put in, finish off the interior like seatbelts, seats and plastics, still a crap load of wiring to do like the boost controller, gauges and the computer, hoping to have her on the road by the weekend

Was the windscreen difficult to remove. Is it a 1 or 2 man job ?

I see you have the AeroCatches. I need to install mine before it goes back on the road.

I don't remember where I bought them, a UK site i think, have them sitting around for quite a long time now.

They are lockable, model number 125 - 2100 flush locking kit.

They were bought a few years ago, so I can't remember the price either.

The model I have says that you need to apply fiberglass or carbon fiber around the back of it to install it flush. So it's more work than the other models.

I read about copies failing, I don't know how much is true.

If you are considering them, I would Google reviews just to be on the safe side.
