Yep. That's on the cards. I have some 1mm HDPE that I'm going to make wheel arch liners out of.
Need to protect all that is in the picture and the radiator too.
it mainly comes out in the dry weather.

Interesting battery placement, I have always wondered how hard it would be to put a little brallie battery up front.

There is no battery up front. Where are you looking? Or what do you think is the battery?



apologies should have quoted the post from 69k1100, if you scroll down there are some pictures after the aerodynamics article.

Standard Rover mini. I see others are changing them but I haven't been asked to so I'll leave it.

It's back together now. A wheel alignment has been done and it aligned quite nicely. No head aches.
I made up some wheel arch liners out of 1.5mm HDPE to keep the water and dirt away from the radiator and keep the engine bay clean.

Off to the Dyno on Thursday for tuning.
