Clive...... do you remember walking to the museum at beaulieu the other year with me n the father in law, we came across that car on the field with vortex generators that were “Velcro’ed” to the front bumper??

Well I think I’ve topped it off with cardboard n gaffer tape lol

Should add at least 2000lbs on the front end before the tape gives way.

Just pray it doesnt rain

However I have the professional heavy duty version with additional set square, g clamp and steel rule.

Colin chapman would not be impressed with the additional weight
