It's coming along nicely. Is that a Speedex beam and trailing arms?

i think the beam is a"huddersfield spares" style beam - nothing fancy. The radius arms came in a job lot of parts destined for a hillclimb mini. I've had them for about 13yrs, were off my last mini.

It ruined the nice lines of the rear end. In my eyes, it was a typical 1970's 'blocky' styling design/addition  done to curvy/ delicate vehicle shapes from the 1960's. Think rubber bumpers on mg midgets and MGB's etc etc.

Chop! Unbelievable amount of filler in the nose/mouth. So heavy I believe it would effect handling

Crappy bulkhead airbox be gone! Took the decision to get rid as it was just another bit of dodgy fibreglassing. Will replace with a smooth bulkhead.

Random bit of flat-ish grp glued and screwed in. This will be glassed in from the back then given a couple of layers of tissue to smooth out the top layer. Then a skim/sand for blending in.
