Alu front subframe starting to take shape. It was meant to be a Spondon copy but didn't have anything to bend the right radius, so it's a little big-boned. I need to finish the welding, add a couple of braces and something to mount the tacho warning lights and temp gauge in.

I haven't yet Al. I got this far on another course - aluminium welding and fabrication. Handily I also learned how to stretch and shrink metal. I'm going to end up buying an ACDC TIG welder, I just know it.

I bought a lightweight fairing frame a while ago off E bay. If you want some pics I can take some for you.

I took it out of winter hibernation at the weekend. Sorted all the bent bits, filled it with fluids and fitted a new toy - quick shifter. If I hold my breath, cross my fingers and say there's no place like Donington enough time I hope to be testing it out on Saturday.

As of today yes. MSVT have said they are keeping tracks open using a few extra procedures. As of tomorrow? I have no idea but I'm not hopeful. Anglesey has shut on request of the local government so with school closures and a lock down likely any day the writing is in the wall.
