They won't remain rare if you bring them out 2 at a time!

You have been busy - nice work and 'solid' cars (apart from the lightening holes).

Looks like you had a busy weekend!

I remember the lights from your old Z. Liked them then and still do.

What lightweight panels are you using?

It has taken many busy weekends since i came back from OZ to get to this stage
Carbon bonnet ,GRP tailgate, kevlar doors (quite a bit lighter than GRP ones,GRP wings,GRP scuttle panel.just need a lightweight tailgate spoiler as the factory spolier is quite heavy or don't fit one.

Rob ,not so much lightening holes but the rear valance is like a big scoop so hopefully less wind resistance.

Mmmm not sure about that mod. Shame to spoil a rear valance really. Aren't you having a petrol tank and exhaust under there. A bit of 'ally' plate might have been better.

If it's going to be hollow under there then drilling holes is going to encourage air to travel through them - if it's blocked off the air will pack in there and fill it for you?

Also you might encourage lift (unless you think you've got a diffuser effect ).

Anyway I'm no aerodynamics expert.

If I was a betting man I'd say they were both LHD shells. I might be wrong about the 'track' one though.
