Bit more exciting news on the horizon, which I'll put a new thread up for
It looks really great!
If you are at the place, could you please take a pics or two of the LHD dashboard? Thanks!

Well if you dont need an oil cooler hole, you can fit the number over the hole or you can use the original nosecone. It was made that way because people asked for it. You cant please everybody all the time unfortunately.

One question Ben.
How much is the internal height of the bonnet? I ask to see if my engine (BEC) will fit under it without the need to make a cut.

Is it not ok to stick a number on the nose cone like lots of other sports cars?

A number plate made up of stickers over the nose will not currently pass an MOT so it's a good job it only has to be there once a year then. A square lorry type plate with 50x 12mm holes drilled through the white section will.

Internal at the back it's 264mm at the front it's 203mm I would allow another 4mm for the thickness of fiberglass on the side panels on top of the metal rail.
