And yes, 2k revs from a stop gives you lots of friends... Especially those who wave at you with one finger...
Tried to source some of those tyres you speak of locally but apparently its an older model and we no longer have it (maybe just in Aus?). So will have to delay the tyres.

So this is the first, of what I'm sure will be many, rear wheel arch cover mock up.
I'm toying with keeping the rear of it vertical to try and obtain a "Crease" in the rear of the vehicle that phil knox referred to in a document.
