New stuff

Ive made window pillars from carbon to support the 2mm plastic. Also have purchased 24m of fibre to replace some rear sections, bonnet and wings/fenders. The wheels are pretty lightweight and not much heavier than carbon ones. Im up to just over 100mpg in mild weather but think with smaller profile tyres (45), a 2.5" lowering and the new parts I can get about 110-115 as an absolute maximum. A respray in autumn too, for asthetics, wont affect friction drag to any noticable extent
