    I did the same thing on my side vent openings, only I cut paint sticks to the length I needed to hold the glass in place while it was curing. I used KTM motorcycle radiators on each side, through which I will circulate coolant to the oil cooler via a small electric pump.

    Thanks, Lance. I should have my custom boyd tank that mimics yours in 6-10 business days.

    I sourced the seats through Allan Uzwiak. Youtube username is Zakari3030. I can PM his e-mail if you want. He's regularly building Superlite cars and uses the Tillett B5 in most of his builds. The passenger seat in one shot is just the old fabric corbeau still in place. They're both Tillett B6 carbon. No cushions at this point, but may have some custom cushions made.

    Thanks! I'm hoping the whole car is pretty aggressive looking. I'll be ditching the rear duck bill and adding a nice wide wing from Mallen Alley. I have an idea for a fairly clean chassis mount. Then extending the front splitter 3-4" off the front like you did.

    Some self-explanatory updates.







    Mocking up a wing mount...

    Exactly!! We used 1/4" plywood, drilled all of the mounting/adjustment holes and sent them to a water jet cutter. 100 bucks later, done!

    Oh, and depending on the wing you use, that area of the frame will actually bend! we were only running 5 degrees with tension rods from the mid trunk pin mounts to the wing, and were bending it! Ended up installing two more vertical tension braces and moving the wing to 0 degrees to solve the problem. the plane of our wing is 2" above the top of the roll bar to get out of it's turbulent shadow, and because our wing is effectively behind the car, the leverage is pretty significant, so don't need much wing angle to be effective.

    Your mount was my inspiration. I was planning on 3/16" aluminum. That's impressive that you're bending the frame. I'll keep an eye on that.
