    I actually did think about one of these: 300 bhp, oil cooled and unbreakable in bikes...not sure about as a car engine though! Had 3 GSXR1100's....awesome engines

    With you Adge, I'm definitely on the side of caution when it comes to IVA, for the effort involved i'm going to edge protect everything in sight. Thanks Chaps!

    perfect thanks...final question...sorry! I've fixed the passenger seat to the floor, but i'm thinking about putting the drivers side on runners.....worth the faff? Just thinking of ease of access and not persecuting a short or tall IVA chap...

    I also seem to remember off here somewhere that schroth harnesses need the yellow bit towards the tunnel... Just realised: What would i do without this forum!!

    Need a quick sanity check before i move on. Harness eye bolts are about 4.5" above the seat entry point...any issues with that for the IVA chap?

    They are the westfield aluminium panels but covered in 3M Carbon wrap....its dead easy to do. Bit annoyed i didnt quite manage to hide the black rivets under the rubber trim though...will be the first thing on the upgrade list after IVA.
