Yes it looks a lot better and neater that way. Have you sealed it at the front (door end) where you've bolted it? Obviously the standard glass has the rubber on it.

no have not sealed it , ive nutserted the pillar with a bit of sealer on the inserts before i fitted them so shouldnt have any water in , sits tight against the poly as well so fingers crossed ..

well not much going on at the moment , car still with the exhaust man whos haveing a mare with it and to add to the problems hes having hes phoned to say he has slipped a disc in his back so all on stop at the moment ... :(
head is back and rocker back from powder coating so thought i would make up the cops plate and mount the coils , head gasket here monday coming from lithuania , cams and top end bits all ordered decided to go for solid lifters in the end as it gives more options with cam choices further down the line , probably 3 weeks or so before they land in my lap ...

so thats it for the moment hopefully back up to speed soon ..

a question i ask myself daily at the moment , :lol: 6 pot was the original plan but did a bit of reading up on 4 potters so i thought id give them a go and see what could be done . i always have the option to drop a 6 in if it does not work out , after 10 years out of the seat it will probably quick enough to start with anyway . once the cars built and finished ill probably buy a 6 potter when one comes along just in case .your car goes well in the vids ive seen , she standard lump ..
