That is starting to look cool with the wheels attached to give some perspective of the final look.

Cheers guys. Not much progress toady ... Big thumbs up to Ben and Paul who came over and help me move some of my damn 4m long mulit V Block tooling so my shed extension can get going. They also got to play with some fibreglass but time will show what that is for .....

Ok so I have decided that I need to make th erear seat as low and as far back as possible. To achieve this I am thinking bye bye fibreglass, hello aluminium ....

So firstly I put the body half on so I can check a few things out and take some measurements off the body lines and positioning.

Once I was happy a bent up a bit of alli to fit the space. I stuffed up the tunnel over so after I am happy with how it all sits I will make another, for now it will do.

Sitting position is nice and low.

I assume Brad that there will be a fair bit of padding on the rear seat to raise it up so that there is some room to put your legs down, otherwise you have to put them under the front seat.....I am sure you have worked it all out though.
