    A fillet would have worked but I am happy with an angle grinder in my hand!! It keeps the body as it should be. Only took 5 minutes to cut it out, I am hoping an hour to get it back!!!!

    Well the plan is for a JPS themed livery. No chrome as such, but decals in the spirit of the Lotus Cosworth of 1972. Nothing really to do with GT40's but of the period and 'different'. So many Gulf...
