    There will be a mixture of materials in the subframe. I imagen finished article will be mainly t45.

    Just on with a quick sketch of a catch tank tonight first 5 mins I have had to myself this weekend. Looking at catch tank / expansion tank possibly a gearbox breather which will double up as a remote filler.

    Here will be the an10 breather tank which, wil use a breathable cap so is an enclosed unit. I will be making 1 as a prototype to start with.

    So it’s been extremely quiet on the front. Moving out of my current unit. Putting everything into storage, and building large garage at home to accept 3-4 cars or 2 cars and extra large welding table and my equipment has took most of my time. And money.

    But today I’m doing a bit of work on the cage as it’s just come back from sand blasters so a quick sand and 2 coats of etch will do today.

    That will do today finish the fuel tank box. Install foot plates and then get the rear cage sat in car.

    Good work. :thumb: My matter cage is in now. I decided to weld it in rather than bolt, as it will never be coming out. Hoping I can offset the weight by gutting the door cards and perspex windows front and rear.
