I love all the under bonnet drilling.  Am doing up a trailer to carry a friend's Austin 7 to his first event at Goodwood this Saturday - anyone passing?  Its a Brighton club sprint.  I put a winch on with a new bracket to raise it for clearance and couldn't resist getting out the hole saws and drills "just because". 

A friend sent me this a while back - still sitting in my inbox for a "proper look sometime".  The concept is "drillium" as an alternative to making from "unobtainium".

The Zagato is drilled like the original Competiziones although I think there's even a bit more on this version - like the tops of the subframe turrets and above the rear window. It seems a reasonable price for a car prepared like this.

'Drillium' reminded me of an article on Jack Brabham in this month's Motorsport. His first car was a Cooper Bristol. The crankshaft on its 2 litre Bristol engine was so spindly that the mass of the flywheel and clutch could snap it just by spinning the car. Jack fitted a lighter clutch and machined the flywheel until he'd got it down to 15lbs rather than the original 85..............
