    Mark,

    I used the "Bighead" fasteners bonded to the inner skin and pop riveted aluminium brackets to the mesh. For the small oval (brake cooling) ducts I just formed the mesh round the inlet and...

    Nige,

    As always the quality and finish is beautiful, the rear view is squat and planted - and, to prevent misunderstanding, I mean that in a positive way.
