Chasis rail fix - tow hook

When towing the car on the trailer while ago tightened the straps down to much and at to large lateral angle that pulled the box section apart. You can see in these photos where it has been now welded up and just needs some paint.

Chassis wing mount kit cut in two...

We were not happy with how the kit went through the guards and needed some flexibility with ability to remove the wing for the street so the decision was made to cut the chassis mounts in two. You are looking at $300 that probably could have gone elsewhere.

carbon dash panel

I played around today with a small carbon fibre off cut that i have from something else and copied the panel i have that is made from aluminum in the dash. The aluminum panel hasn't looked the best with a few scratches on it so hopefully this will look the goods.

Simply masked up the carbon panel and then cut around the edges, it is quiet hard to cut carbon fiber and i blunted a few blades doing it but eventually i cut through.
