Also, you want to run some ally bracing on the boot lid do it holds the curved shape. They flatten out otherwise.

I'll look into bracing the boot lid at some point. I just can't believe how flimsy it is. I guess you get what you pay for.

The other needs a repair to the bottom which I'll do if I don't run out of gas

Heres some of the goodies that I got that came in very useful:
Sliding window conversion for my doors. I welded in some 2mm thick angle:
My rear subframe is pretty much finished now. It's been seam welded, drilled a little for good measure, painted and built up:
Need some longer backplate bolts.
With the help of my best friend I made these boxes for the roll cage:
Welding the straight edges on a nice flat surface is easy. Unfortunately when it came to welding the actual cage, it wasn't as neat as I would have liked so I'll grind the welds down and try again but that could be some time. Its difficult to weld round the notched tubes so I'll try it on some scrap first. I can see why companies charge so much for fitting.

The front cage bars don't look even in that photo but I think it's just the photo. I took every precaution to make sure it was all even.

Looks good, love the steering column mounts and the rear shock turrets. If you plan on MSA registering the car don't touch the welds on the cage with a grinder...they will not pass it if its been ground down.
