Having tried a number of local stores to source a 4.5 mm allen key my good friend Mike Fleming managed to locate one and hey presto … it first not only the cylinder head cover plates but also the exhaust manifold bolts. The manifold bolts were surprisingly easy to slacken .. had expected quite a bit of grunt.
A couple of turns and the downpipes were freely moving
Admission time ! – Yes , I did cut the holes in the wrong place ! Then spotted the TLAC perfectly marked holes !
Nice neat fit … leaves a few minor eeking out of the holes to make sure its a snug fit but looks great.
Paul H S has sourced me a replacement top cowl which has been shipped to my son at Williams F1 ! so they will be wondering where exactly on the FW37 this part actually fits !!! Driving over with a van to drop Benjamin’s house bits off so coming back empty which will mean I get the cowl back in one piece.
