WOW steve, properly WOW.

I am SERIOUSLY tempted to get tupman to redo my boot, my welding on the flat floor was shabby (was my first welding on the car), the rest of the floor is a bit bodged, my arches are iffy.

now ive missed my deadline, i want the mini PERFECT, and thats looking very good.

Interesting dash bar arrangement, what gauge steel are those tubes? will probably stiffen the front end up a treat- although that can sometimes be a bad thing , tap an a-panel on a barrier, and you can knock the shell out of alignment.

Nicks also thinking of doing the same- turreting and tubbing.
