    No need to change I ran with a 5b plate for time, only just replaced with a 5t plate the only difference is the brackets are pocketed 3mm into brace holes, rear just plugs into bumper rail holes,

    I ordered a TC cage from Freeprawn today ...cos I thought it was in stock, only to be disappointed with an email telling me it could be a while as it's on back order.....why do they advertise stuff that they don't have in stock ? .....it really racks me off !.

    Did you make your own panels for yours Paul ?

    Showing in stock at MMR Si I would cancel order mate, bought my cage used with the black panels fitted, have made myself a set in red and also an orange set for the lad all in 3mm Perspex, side/bonnet/roof panels are 1mm lexan wrapped in carbon, took my window panels off now no need with the bug shell fitted,

    Cheers Laz....ought to have known better with freeprawn...but he does deliver in the end. It was cheaper from freeprawn...that's why I went with it. I just don't think it's good duping folk into believing stuff is in stock when it's not.

    Your panels look good mate ...cracking job. Gonna wait and see when the cage is on and decide what to do with it, I fancy something bright n dazzling

    Can you not heat the part of tank up that's in the way and push it inwards a little

    just looked back through your pics on this mate and noticed you aint got the gear plate etc fitted yet,
    if I was you i'd fit the gear plate/ pinion/spur etc and check to make sure they all line up and fit right,
    what I mean is, is it actually the engine that's too far to the right ?
    would defo be worth checking just to be sure
