Welcome to house of fun,save yourself some hassle and if you can find Ginetta G20 rear uprights they bolt straight on with calipers and discs no probs.

Looking good. Is the pedal box upright in the correct place? I'm sure I made that mistake when I made mine.

A bit more done tonight, took my cad drawings down to the laser cutters after work, hopefully get some bits back for the weekend!

Also cut and turned to length the wishbone bush tubes, just got to bore them out to size, not sure if my little lathe will cope, might have to upgrade!

I'm also very impressed with the progress you've made in such a short time.
I like the laser cut parts, especially the one-piece steering rack support, and the one piece bent diff brackets (I have the same kind on my car).
Keep up the good work! Looks like your Raodster will be on the Road sometime in 2015 ?

Thanks, yeah I had seen a few on the internet and thought they looked neater, I saved quite a bit on the price too as I drew them up my self!

Your car looks stunning by the way, one of the best I've seen!

You seem to be blazing along. You'll be finished by next summer at this rate.
If you haven't already, make the plate that the steering column goes through from 3mm steel not the book 1mm. It's a real pita to change it after it's been fully welded on.
