Thanks for the kind words people, appreciated.
Especially coming from people who's work and opinions I have developed a lot of respect for.
riderinblack - the hood - "thanks for bringing that up" he says in his best sarcastic voice
you're right though and I'm hoping to come back to that a little later. I'm considering some kind of support up the center, between the rollcage and hood itself, to create a curve or at least some angle to the hood.
Late last night I also (re)discoverd the Pro-Line Pro-Driver SC Clear Interior which my LHS has in stock. I'm thinking of using it as I was considering with the jconcepts overtray. It would need "thinning" as it's 203mm wide and the inside of the rollcage is about 190mm so it would lose the side panel bits but I think it might work - I need to find some better pictures or ideally see one before deciding though.
Being the only kid in the house means I don't have any action figures to butcher as drivers either
If anyone has one of these BTW I'd be greatful if you could measure the rollcage width behind the drivers head and the bit were it thins out towards the rear. Then I might be able to tell if it will fit inside the roll cage.
On a sepearte topic if anyone has any advice on a starting point for the suspension, particulaly oil wt, I'd be interested - particulalrly you riderinblack as I LOVE the way your suspension works - the "ghost" effect look great in your vids and thats what I'd like to achieve. I notice you have gmade piggybacks now
so keen to understand your new config.
