Ah, that was done with a pair of mole grips. Once I had fitted my rather large wheels and tyres I then had to improve the clearance which was done, less than subtly, with a mallet and hammer. I did also have "trim" the back edge of the bottom sill inside the arch which was then welded up.

Of no relevance to my build but I thought this video of how to sort out the tools in your toolbox was pretty cool.

I went to the London Classic Car Show in my MX yesterday. As I was driving in to the main car park one of the stewards stopped me and asked why I wasn't going to the "special car park for classic cars"? Flattering but I had to tell him it was a kit car so probably wouldn't be too popular in with a bunch of genuine classics.

Fave three cars ? (Difficult question time).

Not as big as the one at the NEC but less crowded and some great cars. Three favourites - Blue and Yellow 250 GTO (obvs), Renault Alpine A110 and there was a rather lovely split screen VW bus for 80,000 :gulp:
