    Thanks chaps. Slowly getting there, all the small but crucial work is being done currently. Then the final stages of technical Aero, Gearbox, Suspension & Kinematics.

    @Tutuur, carbon sheeting is manufactured by a company in Poland. Honestly one of the best I have seen, Carbontec.

    Looking good.

    What is your final spec with suspension, engine, box, ecu, etc?

    I'm starting mine in the new year, ready for 2017 season.

    Had a few moments spare so thought I'd update again.

    More weight saving and a general tidy up with all unwanted wirring.

    Loom stripped & cut back. All wire that is no-longer needed, i.e rear wiper, heated rear window etc...

    I see them on eBay but I thought £160 odd was abit exspensive for 2 door cards that I have to attach straps myself and to cut holes for my electric window switches was hoping to buy a sheet myself and make them

    I doubt you will find cheaper for the same or similar quality.
    You will also struggle to cut them out to shape with such accuracy from a single/ plain sheet including door handle ovals.
