@Shassen Wow! Now thats different!

Are there any images of the other side to see how they have worked around the side door and fuel cap?

I know the front wings are available as a complete steel panel with 25mm or so extra arch.

Cheers that looks like an add on kit but looks a nice job fair play! Thanks for sharing

Saw this on fb this morning.

Here are all the pics from the post. Door looks like it’s just been welded up.

@dan@biali

What a great find Dan! Priceless photos those and great to see they’ve fabricated it out if steel and not fibreglass! Proper job and something I could do that to be honest, all be it at my usual snails pace of course!

Love that look though but think I would prefer the rear arches without the Ferrari 355 type vent scoops.

Awesome job fair play to them!

At least im on special rates now with 1mm gauge 2x1 meter mild steel sheets at my local suppliers ... £25 inc vat per sheet ive bought that much between mine and the mk1 Caddy

Hmmm now this has to be done I think

I think id do it slightly different on the front wings too if i was to tackle this job. More like the iconic Escort Cosworth style wing
