LOL. My business is childcare.. All very very different to cars but it's great to make a difference which I think we do. Just been made a finalist for the Nursery World 2018 awards... All my settings are rated as Outstanding by Ofsted... blah blah blah... well apart from a new one in Halifax which hasn't been inspected yet.

Anyhow, more interesting for me is that we had 50 plus children building cars out of bread baskets and tyres and stuff in an overlooking play area. Inspiration from watching me and a couple of staff put this beast together which was great to see. We took the children for a little walk one by one around the CS12 for those that wanted a closer look.

In terms of what happened to it... These panels were replaced with lighter carbon fibre/nomex ones with lots more vents to release heat. The CS12 pumps out some serious heat... The wing was also added later although the back end does have a lip on it.... Not as effective as a wing though. Anyhow, these ones were left hanging around the TVR factory and I've had them hidden away in a garage for about 8 years from when I bought them from TVR. I think they need to be used....

Probably worth (safe) keeping in case of a crash/damage/fire etc? You never know what the future could bring...

Bonnet "power" bulge sprang to mind. But original design is just that, authentic. cool

The heart of these really, is the engine. Some clones need to be produced using fff heads.

Agreed and I already have another spare set of panels - a full set in addition to these ones!

It was until yesterday, it's back home now. Brian Hosfield of Lawfield Engineering checked her over and changed the oil etc plus MOT. Runs sweet!

I took mine into S&D Tuesday, dropped it off around the back and left my trailer there and saw yours being worked on, looked really good, love to see it on the move.
