My ambition would you believe was to compete in WFD so the glass rear window was ear marked for a perspex affair for lightness..
From my record of failed attempts into getting into Motorsport perhaps it was good not to have progressed that way..
The conversion from V6 Essex and overdrive gearbox from 1600 x flow did enough to subside things on WFD..

I did manage to remove the front screen in laminated and change the screen rubber without damage but pushing out that goldfish bowl would have been a disaster i reckon if it had broken..Hate to think how much they are now..

. Just fitted an oil cooler and changed position of oil filter as original position on v6 came very close to chassis rail and made it difficult to change filter on wfd400h

Very nice, the orange really seems to catch the sunshine and highlight the lines.

Thought for a moment you were into Pigeons !

Pity that one of my canine children goes hysterical with excitement in the Tranny Connect as i would love to come up and see WFD again.
