Roof plug 5.

My initial hope was to blend the new plug, into the rear down force wing. How ever due to its shape a sufficiently strong join for mould is going to be hard, (but not impossible) to achieve. Also, by having the rear DF wing separate, it can be changed easily.
As can also be seen, the new roof will have no rear windscreen, and no boot lid.
The centre reinforcing section of DF wing is now not really needed, so a grinder made it vanish!:)

I don't know what it is, but i find alot of satisfaction in creating something like a plug, although i am my biggest critic. It always amazes me that the end result is something unique. Okay, so i could be classed as being too creative, can't even look at something like a piece of wood, without wanting to carve,or create something with it. One of the best pieces of advice i have ever had is to keep it simple. Maybe i am not following that with this part of build. But bearing in mind that this is a road car, with occasional track use, the benefits that could be part of the result, i feel it worth the effort.
