This might just look like a Rover V8 Plenum Chamber, but in fact it will enable me to judge bonnet height.
The Rover V8 engine is quite tall compared to others I’ve looked at and I am determined not to have a huge bonnet bulge that looks like a hideous after thought. I want the bodywork to look like it was planned, not modifed or cut away around an engine.
Lets face it, the Haynes Roadster isn’t exactly the biggest car that hit the roads and certainly wasn’t designed with the Rover in mind.
Off to Exeter today for the Kit Car show ☺
Putting this all into CAD will have to wait a few days.
