ive only got cheep second hand arches, so these are getting trimmed,
both mainly york at first its only 40 mins away but its abit basic, pod is about 100miles but a weekender should make it worth while, abit chavtastic though

the mot is urm ... convenient lol darren grasbys promotive demo car never had a rear bulkhead and was road legal so i presume its not a problem. at some point i'm going to add an alluminium rear bulkhead to tidy it up.

pod would be ace :) or avon but thats even further for you i think.

That bulkhead was the one I wanted to see, I had an idea you had chopped it out. I'm gonna have a word with my mot man, considering the amount of rollcage I have I'd like to chop the one out on mine. There must be a good 6 or 7 kg of it.

with the seatbelt points and the bulkhead i think it weighed in the region of 5kgs so was worth it.

the support for the headlinging? that'll be gone today :)
hopefully can get this roof fitting better by tapping the edges down so the edge wil sit down into the roof gutter.
