Looks good, is it wrapped or carbon fibre skinned?

Fitted new wheels with ps4s, can't wait to see what it's like with decent rubber instead of 14 year old run flats :thumbsup:

Changed to much better Zimmermann Coat Z sport discs. Looks so much better than the 13 yr old rusty ones!

Ha - I wondered if anyone else thought that. I did, and my god did I check. Strangely these are not handed / sided discs but the drill pattern makes you naturally expect that they are. The internal vents are perpendicular to the circumference and the Zimmermann data sheet states they are for O/S and N/S.

But, I agree they look a little odd.

great job mate :thumbsup: Did you skin the original trim yourself?
I’m planning on doing a load when I take mine off the road over winter. I don’t know wether to sink original parts, or go all in and make moulds. Making moulds will take longer & more expense, but if I master the art I may try larger parts such as the exterior panels. There is a great company https://www.easycomposites.co.uk/ who sell everything you need. They have a Learning Area section with videos on different techniques. One even shows you how to make a car bonnet from start to finish.

Changed the front brakes, pads and calipers. I painted the new calipers and the rears.

Tomorrow will change the pad censor that was fried (didn't throw up a light on the dash) and an oil change.
