    It's cheeky front splitter time

    All just mocked up at present, I have some proper phenolic ply to use for the final version









    Just mounted up with some M6 nutserts for testing, shape still needs to be sorted but the height is pretty good I think

    eBay!! But it seems I've bought the last set!!

    Just search quick release splitter brackets.

    Gonna use M10 nutserts to the chassis leg, should be fine to use in shear.

    I was scared it wouldn't work so didn't wanna drill too many holes, to get the air dam to work I'll have to mod the brackets



    Then the air dam can mount to the splitter and be shaped to the bottom lip of the car.

    Lots of other sellers, they're about ?40.

    I think yours were cheaper cos someone put L and R markings on the wrong side House.

    Left and right as I'm looking at it from the front of the car pal. Keep your nose out.

    Yeah I've seen others for 40 quid too.

    Well, this is still mock-up, so needs finishing touches, I've got the buffalo board to make it out of the proper stuff.













    Can't do anymore now until the engine is back in as I need to shape the final version around the exhaust manifold.

    God, what have I done



    First time drilling the shell since it was finished.

    Need to weld these in, which is even more scary




    Something like this



    It's a tight fit, even if the picture doesn't look like it.

    I'm gonna knock that riv nut out too and stick a boss in there. Need to bore the bosses out for M10 threads too, thought about going M8 but it needs M10 as the splitter bracket is M10 slots too.

    Got one side buttoned up









    First time welding in about 3 years, decided I need a new welder cos a poor work person always blames their tools!!

    Otherside will have to wait as I'm away to the Emerald Isle to earn a bit of corn for a few weeks.
