I'm pleased with it generally but still loads to do

Remake the rear subframe to allow the lightweight (but large) battery

Make the tail unit undertray (not looking forward to that as it will need rolling and bending)

Full wiring loom

Full exhaust system 

then the little jobs that takes ages start !!!

I'd love to still follow this but currently it's sat in my workshop with a blanket over it. Been a hectic year with racing season on us. 

I'm need to get the rear subframe made then it should be full steam ahead
