This is around 24 MPG which at local prices compared to 97 or 99 ron works out at 48mpg (pound for pound) :) There are a few things to bear in mind. 1. The first few tanks aren't the most economical as you...

    I'm going to machine Polish it as I'm well bored of filing and wet and dry. I would refine the finish pass in future as I'm lazy. :)

    strut braces and science behind em? (a lil help scott lol)

    Noone ever asks lol! I haven't gone to town on the design before now either. But when I do parts I keep the models so it would only be a matter of scaling to an appropriate size and know the hole circle pitch. I just makewhat I'm asked for to keep the cost down for who wants it. Ill post a...

    Cheers rob, you may notice I have focused on the rear assembly first as you advised. Its the one that'll give me the most benefit. I'm being advised to use steel tube (handy... there's a pile of it in the scrap) and make sockets to screw into my plates and weld if its necessary.

    I started cutting today, hopefully I wont get a bollocking for running it in work time as the MC was empty. I'm thinking that whatever I do will be based on these plates :)
