A chance to talk mostly about Bolwell Sports Cars.

See attached more photo’s and updates on Ikara #11. I have fabricated and fitted a reverse gear lock out which Peter Wherrett would have appreciated on his test drive of the proto type. From the photograph you can see two marks on the bracket for neutral position and then the bracket can be flipped over to allow engagement of reverse.
This allows positive engagement of all gears.
On the windscreen photograph you can see the blacked out section 115mm wide across the bottom and a strip 25mm wide up each side and across the top, this hides the uneven edges of the fibreglass frame and the dust which collects across the bottom.
To make the car legal for registration I have installed an under dash 150watt ceramic fan heater demister, which works well in an enclosed body, but maybe not so well in a open top sports but it’s there.
At this stage I’m still waiting on the bonnet and nose cone from the spray painter to complete the vehicle.
