    The Dino stick gets round the need for a gearbox end 'gate'.

    You're right Chris - we were going to go that route but then realised it wasn't possible because we had filled all the available space with cooling and aircon pipes - so this was the compromise. And interestingly the arrangement was common to at least two original cars that I have seen - although no idea why they did that in period.

    You're right Matt, certainly the 1240 and 0003 cars had the Ferrari stick, and I think maybe the 1972 Turin show car, too.
    No, I don't know why they used the Beta stick joint in the end, either?

    I agree - but I do wonder how much stability the car will lose without spoilers - if I ever manage to get this on the road, that is..

    I could't tell with the orange Hawk I had with no spoilers (or louvres), compared to the blue Hawk that had a roof wing and rear spoiler.
    The lack of rear spoiler helps a lot with rearward vision, but that combined with no rear louvres on the orange car was bliss.

    Matt, what did you do with the louvre panels eventually? did you get a replacement set, or did you further modify the Italian set?

    Looks really pretty by the way!!

    Thanks Griff - the louvres were made from scratch in the end - a long and and very laborious process that involved a lot of swearing...
