I’ve had a quick look on the web at a few Modsports Cobras and none had rear screen straps. I guess they were all racing on short tracks and so speeds weren’t high enough to give screen problems.

With the longer driveshafts and bottom arms now fitted, the rear tyres now sit nicely in the rear arches. These shafts and arms are 20mm wider than the ones I took off.

Been toying with the idea of putting some pinstripes on the arches, not sure about this yet, but its very much "on point" for '70's Modsports cars and Super Saloons. These are very crudely fitted just to get a feel for how it could look

Or possibly cream and black stripes to mimic the cream bonnet stripes with the black pinstripe edge

Does my arse look big in this?? :lol: :lol:
