Not heard anything about VBOA for next year? I did like billing from the 90s, Market Harborough felt a little thin, I didn't make it last year. Hope we can have an event in 2021?

Been chipping away at getting bits reassembled, what is it they say the last 10% takes 90% of the time, this is definitely the case with mine







Genuine NOS headlights, I did split them and paint the insides black like the old ones were, but no broken brackets now :)

So I took advantage of Hel's 40% off black Friday deals and now the full car has braided lines throughout, overkill I know but saves me having to buy the tools to make them, plus the front already had them from when I did all of that before

Same as you, full braided setup but in black instead.
did you run them inside the axle (by the ARB) as it was easier to tie them to something?

I've got them running in the standard positions, above the fuel filler pipe, have you still got the rear beam valve on yours?

I also binned off the rear load sensing valve as it's pretty pointless. The car is lowered at the back anyway so the valve would be at max anyways. I'm gonna see what happens when it back on the road and if needed add some restrictors

I'm talking about on the axle it's self, they usually run along the beam but you have cable tied yours to the ARB
