Roof mounted

As promised, more updates!
So the roof is in place, the safety devices cage had 3 small tubes welded onto the front roof cross member that acted as good mounting points. I welded 2 more points into the left and right roof tubes for the rear fasteners.
The bolt points have been bonded to the roof; one in every corner and another in the center to secure the inner roof scoop skin.

Further reinforcement may be needed however it seems as though the compound used to bond the fasteners to the roof is quite strong.

The roof is a carbon fiber copy of an S2 exige roof with the extended roof scoop. The roof uses foam core in either side as reinforcement along with a Carbon inner ski to seal the air duct. It weights approximately 3.5 KG’s.
