With the seats out, can the bar go in fully assembled or must you place the hoop and then slide the stays into place?

In a coupe, it won't go in fully assembled. The stays are sleeved with a bolt. The main hoop will go in, and once it is essentially in place you can bolt the rear stays together, then mark your holes for drilling and rivet nut insertion and then final install.

Stuart - do you think it is possible to install the assembly then:

1) Disassemble hoop from stays
2) Remove hoop from car
3) Cut holes for stays in trim panel
4) Slide the trim panel over stays
5) Reinstall the hoop

The slots are not a big deal to me just wondering if it is possible not to slot the trim panel

Seems to me like it could be done. Measure twice, cut once

Looks like we finally made some progress on the front brakes - took a bunch of digging & detective work but we are finally moving forward with something that should clear the 18's.

So, with that said, we're going to have a bit of a fire sale of some of the OEM take off parts from this build, as well as the GT front Brake Kit:
  • OEM Carbon Front Splitter (fits 2011-on V8 and V12 Vantages, factory replacement or upgrade from plastic.) This part is in great shape, it's a low miles car.
  • OEM Carbon Ceramic Brake Caliper & Rotor Set. These are in fantastic shape, barely worn at all. Brand new set of OEM Pads. Includes caliper bracket, so these can be run on a V8 Vantage as an upgrade. Brand new, I think the Rotors + Pads are close to $20K replacement cost.
  • Brembo GT Front Brake Kit - 6 Piston Caliper in Black, 380mm Front 2 Piece Rotor (upgrade for 2006-2010 V8 Vantages) Has only been test fitted to the car for wheel clearance confirmation.

If anyone has interest email me at [email protected] before we post them on Ebay etc.
