Very nice :D  I imagine the cost is going to be High due to the thickness of the billet alloy you have to start with. :D

 But well worth it.  :lol: :lol: What one what one what one :D

   One question would it be over kill if there was not one but two fixture points between the tray and engine-gear plate?

   Thanks Joe for the hard work its Very much Appreciated  :) :) :)

   Regards Simon.

that was one of my first ideas to increase the stiffness on the car. I’m trying to develop i way in to add a second post on the gear side. but i want to make it cost and design affective. too early to say i can’t promise anything yet.

Can't wait for these to hit the streets.

Thanks for taking the time to out them together for the MCD Owners, who are devoid of many after market tuning options.

Cheers :good:

Sorry guys, I have not had time to put pictures, very busy here, next Monday or Tuesday will show photos of the final product
I can tell, it produces quite a difference in the car stiffness

Great job Jofer :)
This is going to be the next upgrade for my V4 !!!

I'm still working, change the design 3 times, and I have one of the pieces in the tumblers
to polish and to see how they look anodizing
probably Monday or Tuesday I will put some pics of the final design
cheers

sorry for the delay, I have not had time to finish the sample ,  I kept playing with the weight/strength & cost and i tried to come with the best that i can, i had to change the design 4 times.
so give me a couple of days and put the photos of the finished product
