Post Final frame work on 100/14/L
Hello all,

I've attached the link to the updated photos. The mountings for the seat belts have been added as have the mounting brackets for the seats. I've also attached a photo of some of the frame components that came out. Even though they "sounded" solid when hit with a hammer, upon closer inspection they needed to be replaced.

I debated whether or not to remove the body. I knew it was probably the best thing to do but was frankly concerned if I could get it back on the frame accurately and securely. So, I split the difference; I removed the fiberglass around all of the main structural tubes and did not remove it from the smaller tubes. I now have a solid frame but the body is still attached to all of the smaller tubes.

I was fortunate to find someone who knows Elvas. Leighton Reese runs the 07 Corvette in Grand AM and has a race shop about 5 minutes from my house. He knows Couriers and works on an Elva McLaren. http://www.leightonreese.com/ is his website. He did a great job on the fab and suspension work.

Here are the photos:
