The car owner made this inside frame witch secure the front to the chassis .
The front needs to be easily removable in one piece. In the front of the frame , there are 2 hooks that fit right on the wing mounts , and in the back are 2 locating pins and 2 locating fittings mounted to the chassis .

The racecar outside of my workshop for the first time after all that work . Always a great moment , looking at the projekt from a distance in daylight. The owner needed the car back to his workshop , so he can keep on working on the rest of the car .
