    Hiya

    I have mine mounted on the outside pulling air in.

    I have also kept the original fan as this allows for hot air to be pushed out via the shark gills.

    Will add a picture in a moment.

    Note: I have retained the fan but have used the mgb one which has 7 fins

    Picture showing front mounted electric fan.

    This worked well in Le Mans and has proved itself in heavy traffic on the M25

    I have the same Adrian, I am using the engine fan and mounted the electric fan on the outside to push air through as and when needed.

    Found a nice pair of Westfield seats on eBay that will go nice in the Roadster.

    Thought I would get her out in the sun today to give the garage floor a bit of a clean.

    Thanks Adrian, paint isn’t perfect and still needs a bit of work.
    None of the body panels are actually fitted yet just sitting in place.
    Cheers, Martin.

    You haven't seen mine in the cold daylight.

    I'm just glad that I can drive her.

    Carry on the good work and look forward to seeing you and the car in the very near future.

    Well done Martin, looks really good. Must try and get over sometime, seems like ages.
    If I can get all the concrete blocks out of my drive soon I might be able to get mine out of the garage.
