She decided she'd like a go (before turning 40!) at racing stock cars, I simply had to do the decent thing and build a car!

Wee car needs front suspension sorted, then a lick of paint. Wee car's very very sound, with the only rot being the filler neck (steel inside the quarter panel, not the outer panel) and the spare wheel well. Everything else is good.

I trust you have a foam cover for that Kirkey seat.

They are only thin foam but better than metal.

When my wife was racing everyone used to volunteer to tighten her belts up for some unknown reason.

I have an unnatural urge to do that with my parents' Saxo. Do the rules let you plate over sunroofs?

Yep, I've a cover too. I've also noticed plenty of assistance from concerned folk with regard to harness tension!

Set up quite well too in the end. NYPD style pit manoeuvre, when the driver behind chased her tail for 4 or 5 laps.... Mrs Faker would be a feisty doll.... she'll get her revenge... (if I can get her back out again)
