    ....here I could do with some help?

    These cars were developed so much in period, looking through countless old photos, it's hard to determin the exact specification when new......is a half roll bar correct, did they have aluminium door skins etc etc?

    I'd welcome all opinion on what items this car should, or should not, be equipped with?

    Cheers,
    Darren

    Great update Darren.
    I got the shortened trailing arms from Ben as well. Not at the stage to put them on yet but they look beautifully manufactured!
    Is he still making Porsche stuff or is he focused purely on other items nowadays?

    ....Ben still has his stock although his focus is elsewhere at the moment and I don't think he's manufacturing much.....best be quick if there's anything else you need!

    Lol....I'd need to be Herefordshire Landed Gentry to fund a Traction Engine habit!!!

    Although we'll make the mods required I've no plans to fit coil overs but maybe a future development as it will have many out and out racing parts.....doubt I'll ever get close to your tail though Paul
