Now under development and available shortly is a weld in rear turret kit that will allow you to use standard rear coilovers instead of the off-set top ones which I personally dont like. The turrets are made from 2mm laser cut steel with re-inforced and double welded tops and have been made to allow them to either sit at the standard height or 1-inch further up for those who want to run their car nice and low when the rear has been tubbed. These require decent welding and fabrication skills to install so are not a quick Saturday afternoon fix. I will also have a specially made strut brace available to link the turrets together but this will restrict the type of fuel tank you run. More details and fitted pics to follow but this will give you an idea.

Yeah, just taken delivery of three sets, ready to post out start of next week. 45.00 per pair with free postage and the strut brace is an additional 30.00 if required.
Fitted one today to a spare panel I had as it will be a while till I get em on my car so this will give you an idea. The first shot is with the turret at the standard height to show how it could go. I have then installed it around 20mm higher up, but it could go higher still, if nessesary. Its not a difficult job but obviously you need some fabrication and welding skills. Shown also is a strut brace, this has one fixed end and one adjustable rose jointed end and uses 1-inch CDS tube.

Hi mate, I've PM'd you on face book and I'm interested in this kit but would need to know what fuel tank I could use? I've seen the Alloy race tanks but they take up a lot of the boot space. Do you or anyone else know of a good replacement tank to use?
Cheers Phil

Jon, you appear to have a pair of headlights covering your rear window. Will they not cause distraction ?

Hi
Are you still suppling the rear coilover turrets and brace bar?
If so I am interested in a set.
