    For what reason? Or are you thinking more about the rack situ?

    Yes indeed, I think the fact it’s about £100 dearer than a 2wd, made the point of correct choice

    You can leave out the original VW seat mounts, and mount the seats like they did in Rally & Touring Cars. Just weld two lengths of box or tube section from the inner sills to the tunnel. That job will be simple in comparison to the rest

    Much like this Escort

    Struggling for tunnel room for the sake of vw seat runners is not worth the effort

    If you do it that way, you can also have a smaller tunnel next to or part of it for the exhaust

    Look at the Escort Rally specialists, they might just have what you need!

    Companies like http://grp4fabrications.com/index.php?cPath=34 or https://www.motorsport-tools.com/cat...=escort+tunnel

    Think spreader plates are for mounting those rails to the chassis. They spread the load of the rail so in the event of a crash you're not hoping on a 1mm^2 piece of 2mm steel to hold you in the car

    I think the feet on your cage are an example of load spreading plates

    Sean is the young lad who knows everyone (Karl Ellis's mate), you would probably recognise him as I often talk to him in the pits. He is building a 1000hp+ MK2 R30 4mo

    Making some steel billet 5x100-4x100 wheel adapters too, I don’t trust the aluminium types
