Despite our best efforts, the accident damage sustained in race 3 at the August meeting was just too severe to fix. In addition to the rather obviously wrecked door and rear quarter panel, the outer and inner sills were bent, all front seat cross members were buckled, the floor pan was buckled and even the transmission tunnel had been shifted. So after seeing out the 2014 season in a borrowed car, it was time to spend 2015 building a replacement.
The old girl in strip down
When I say spend 2015 building a replacement, I of course mean, spend the first 8 months planning a house move then realise with 1 week to go, you have a track day booked in August and passenger laps to give.
To the workshop we go!
Stripped shell ready for final prep prior to paint; removing various brackets / pieces of sound deadening / seam sealer, checking cage alignment with the new mounts, preparing the panels for primer etc.
