Readers Rides Post pics, specs and build-up stories of your vehicles - or even your garages here. Also interesting stuff about your 'daily drivers' etc. or interesting cars you have seen on your travels, even motors-based TV shows you can recommend. Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

Bending up some tube.

The standard front red 9 cross brace has been binned and we are making a new one from the CDS tube, this also means we can ditch the silly amount of washers that the red9 needs to fit.

Nice work. Looks very tidy under there. I always wondered why the red9 kit required 1/2 a dozen washers on each side.

I think they build it on a universal over size jig so itíll fit both split and bay etc, itís not great, not built very well and very over priced.

The welding is poor and not finished off nice either, this one has never seen the road and the rubbers on the steering rack have failed/split already.

Wonít be ordering any more

February is a busy busy month!

Chassis cage almost finished off, main rear mounting points, rose joints, and extra supports to tig weld in.

Moving onto the engine/gearbox cradle, first up we need to raise the setup as with the notches and air ride the gearbox is too low!
