bummer you are missing the uprights. some of it may not be as bad as you think, mind phils mx5 design has differences around the fron of the tunnel and tr8 has the middle cut out.
i think he sends tt10/tt12 as tmxr something and they go from tr9 diagonally to tr1

sw1,2,3 he didnt send me either not sure its part of the kit, some sell steering bits on there own

have a look on roadster builders under hizzi at my build you will see some pics of the differences, or pm your email i will send some pics over, as already said tr8 area is different behind the engine and the diff area is different, i have some drawings and measurements i got from phil or another guy in caithness who bought a finished chassis from phil.

if the u-rights are going to hold you up BQ keeps 25mm erw on the shelf, not too cheap but is a handy source for small amounts, you will need it

I have all the BR's and the bottom of the Transmission tunnel so I have plenty to be getting on with till the rest arrive.
Useful info about B&Q but they do like to overcharge so going to try Dixon hall first and go from there.
