Hopefully I'll have a 289FIA in the not too distant future.
My CAD guy has finished converting all the paper drawings to something a laser cutter can use.
once the laser cutting of the chassis brackets is done I can start putting it together. :D
I just need a body that is the right shape now, but that is in hand all being well. :D

I see you've added the aftermarket suspension flanges to take the wishbone mounts out of cantilever.
