    Its not finished yet, plenty of pie left to eat lol.

    Im waiting on the sideskirts turning up before I can continue, this lockdown stuff is rather annoying and making logistics difficult for larger parts lol

    I know what you mean about lockdown, it's getting right on my t1t5!

    Stick at it though, you're doing a great job and as importantly, doing a great job of showing us.

    It's really appreciated. :thumbup:

    Ahh, I was thinking Monday night instalment...

    Fair play looking good.

    Masking tape is that structural?

    Nice work mate, looking tidy.

    youre getting a video soon, just not your usual video.

    ive had a rough week with doggo so normal service resumes next week

    masking tape is a precursor to cable ties... sop yes, structural

    Looks like you've had a sweep up there too!

    Looking at that rear bumper, are you planning something garish or going for the sleeper look?

    Happy Birthday Jaffman!

    The front bumper (not the RS one) you mentioned, have we seen that somewhere along the way?

    Oh and now I get it, the parts relay (nods approvingly! is there an emoji for that?). Great stuff.

    Oh, and there speaks a man in the know referring to Castle Combe simply as Combe! :) Just up the road from me and I've had the pleasure of driving it too!

    P.S. Sorry to hear about the dog, I hope a full recovery is imminent.

    yeah the place is pretty tidy atm lol. It’l never last

    the bumper will be car colour but I do have a plan to make it less standard

    this is the rieger bumper, it’s not standard but RS looking

    I’ve actually never been to Combe, every time I’ve planned to go something has popped up. Maybe I’ll take this there lol.

    doggo is recovering, he’s had quite the week though. As has my bank account, paying for out of hours vets on more than one occasion lol


    that’s why I doubled up ;)

    When you do, be sure to let me know! :)

    Ouch, I can imagine.

    Keep up the great work! :thumbup:

    You mean duct tape? :whistle:

    I thought you'd made a pretty good stab at that already...:D

    don’t know what you’re talking about lol.

    It should be a tasteful mod that doesn’t remove from the “sleeper” look

    They are pretty hot on noise there, I went there on a track day years back where the guy who organised it couldn't run his 911 because it was too noisy. It was street legal and he pointed to the sound man that the engine was right by the exhaust and that he had provided/checked the sound levels when did the booking. They weren't having any of it but clearly knew they'd made a mistake as they gave him a Caterham to use for the day

    Maybe I should try to see what sort of noise levels it’s producing
