Absolutely superb Steve, love the cage and attention to detail.

We did meet very briefly ar MIRA, hoping to do it again this year (and do more than 2 miles :oops: ) so hopefully see you there.

In the near future I intend to buy a TIG and do another shell,yours sort of puts mine to shame really....... :oops:

Lookin forward to seeing her.

no i will set up something that has cables running to the rear pads up to the hydrolic hand brake as long as they move when the handbrake is pulled it should be ok :shock: the car has got ap 4 pots on the back witch is why i didnt leave the standard one in place
