Good eye Richard. The bottom of the left fender actually sits 1/2" lower in this photo because the inner fender isn't installed and the bottom is not yet finished. The inner fender pulls the droopy bottom up.

There is a flat spot on the top of the right fender that I will bump up also. I spend half my time measuring....If I only had a buck

Peter, Superleggera is Italian for "Super Light". Normally this means there is a subframe of small metal (aluminum or steel) tubes that the body is welded or riveted to. This provides structure for the body which is then bolted or welded to the actual chassis. Here is a photo of a superleggera substructure.

The Kirkham Cobra that is shown in the build manual posted a few days back is also of Superleggera construction.
