Before & after pics!

Thanks to everyone for all the help and answers on here to date, my FVJ is very near its completion with only the decals to go on next week.

I'm now looking forward to a test day some time in June and hopefully a race later in the year!

regards
Matt

Talking numbers.....

Im a little confused (not hard)! The mono 1600 regs suggest that a – 150 mm x 150 mm blue square is required next to the race number? I've noticed other classes with triangles, diamonds etc but not seen a 1600 with one of those blue squares yet, or perhaps ive just not looked before so havent notice...

Re: Harness fixing point???

Thanks for the info. I think that due to the thickness of the 4 buckles combined with the ECU on the right hand side, this is what made me question it as it didn't seem right. So am I correct in saying the four buckles are bolted tight together albeit at the different angles? This will prevent any a...

Harness fixing point???

Hi all, Can anyone post a pic of their harness fixing method for the lap/crotch belts? I have an FVJ with four fixing points and a TRS 6-point harness. Having looked at it, to bolt in the four fixing points of the lap and crotch belts things start to get very tight!! I wondered if there was a better...

Transponder?

Hi all, As my car gets ever nearer completion, im hoping to have a race or two this season, but my question is this: Is it a requirement to have a transponder fitted to the car for racing in mono 1600? If so, are there provisions to hire them day by day as im told they are very expensive!!? Thanks M...

Re: Hi,

Thanks guys, I'll see you there! Samier, I'm still in the process of cleaning and prep etc, but I'm really close now apart from the usual bodywork cracks and a repaint job! I'm wanting to remove the engine so I can replace the belts, as the last time the car was serviced was '06, but have no idea ho...
