      I could run a small Honda radiator, and one day I might swap as this one was bought for the turbo car and is too big and heavy. I won't do any vents, I have enough to do.
      The painted skirts and mirrors are on. And I mounted the wing uprights properly. The wing looks massive in real life.

                It has to stand out a bit.

                      It's a pity it's pretty much all stock underneath, as it looks like a potentially quick car. This car will never be fast, but that's why I have other MX5's. 😈

                        I need to instal a naca duct and some flex pipe to keep me cooler. Well, I could spend the next week working on it, where do you stop?

It's fully sealed with foam seals, so should work well. I still have to add some braces to hold the splitter up and paint it.
                          What thickness is the plywood? Whats it weigh?

                            Time attack aero without the powahz....kids will love it. Seems a bit overstated for you?

                              Plywood is regular 12mm. But it's a lightweight marine ply. The whole front bumper assembly with splitter weighs 9kg. It is overstated for business reasons.
