    Good to have a record laid out like this that you can add to later when (inevitably) more gets done.

    So these are the all the future articles we can look forward to? 🙂

    Well some of them most likely but even a magician of words such as me can make a steering rack spacer interesting enough for a feature all on its own. 😉

    Who did you buy the fibre glass lids from and are you pleased with the quality and fit?..also, which supplier did you use for the gas struts for the lids? Thanks

    The glass fibre lids were actually on the car when I bought it.
    I think they are from GT Racing. At least the front GF bumper was marked with their brand.
