the car lost a bit more weight today , the screen is just an idea as it might be too restrictive i must check the law first.

You gotta do it speedster style, just a removable aero screen and a cover where the rear seats were.

not sure if this is true, but ive been told that the 126 roof is what holds the car together.. have you done anything to re-inforce the shell? it might just snap down the middle  :oops:

and what hudsonhenry said  :D [-/

well its having the back screened over but i will leave two up front , i have an option to do a seperate windsheild i was just playing around to see what it would look like as i wish to keep the square blocky lines of the 126 and the front pillars are very thick and i can insert a good sized piece to strengthen the whole structure. as for the worry about my car folding up i am inserting tubing on the interior to brace the body and aid the rear roll bar ,underneath i am beefing it up also. i hope to avoid
any sort of flexing by doing this as the body is no longer rigid where i have removed the roof.

ive been down to the local vosa testing centre today to chat about new regs that will come in with the new iva and have a multitude of things to plan in order to get it passed off , the only real issues that they are more concerned about are seatbelt anchor point heights and brake testing so i might have to consider really beefing up the brakes with discs front and rear , i am in contact with a kitcar builder as i must keep within the guidelines set by vosa and use materials regulary used by kitcar producers . and its raining ..

Hi Mick , what is the issue with the kit car people & regular materials ? Just interested as I have been thinking about putting together a front disc brake set from scratch which seems do able for under £100 if the adaptor plates can be made or got for a reasonable price.

Is there anything special about the adaptor plates or are they just a shaped piece of plate with holes drilled in them?

Because I know of a little engineering company who would do them for a good price.

Could probably just get some plate and make them myself!
