    Manage to split the 8mm pipe OK to fit over the sharp edge on the sides of the seat but now the pipe is split it buckled on the bends and twisted and the split kept closing up. I'm normally a patient fella but the seat almost got thrown across the garage a couple of times! Then I cut one part to short! Gave up, I don't have the metalwork skills to sort the bends out, I tried but started to damage the ally panels.







    Went and found the rubber edging strip and used that instead!









    Although not what I has first thought I'm happy with the finished article. Now for the other one!

    Grabbed an hour in the garage on Saturday and ended up with this. It's a Competition Engineering kit.
    Had to find a smaller diameter main tube that fitted in the existing hole in the back of the car.
    Just got to paint it up and find some 1/2" pins to secure it to the chassis.

    No, just finding small jobs that need doing.
