Your Libra looks great, I hope you have lots of fun with it.
I started with a Spyder last year and got my hands on a Libra a few months later. They're great cars and I've had many happy hours 'tinkering' during lockdown. It's been a lifesaver!

Ah I know that one.

Factory built and originally owned by Steve Garland who ran it for many years as his daily.

It eventually needed a rebuild and I bought it intending to do just that. Unfortunately I didn't get around to it and sold it on to Ryan Yarrow. He did rebuild it entirely. Rebuilt engine and gearbox with special ratios. There is a build thread on here somewhere.

The exhaust or whatever it is wrapped in material looks odd, what is that?

I'm not familiar with the Honda engine set up but I guess it has something to do with that. It does look a bit vulnerable though! Take care coming down off speed bumps!

Many thanks all...yes ,the wrap was a temporary scrape deterrent ...i am in the process of designing a METAL skid plate for it ..among many other minor cosmetic detailing projects...FERRARI style rear diffuser fins nearing completion ...front splitter fitted and looks ...well i think ...really ace
And yes its Ryans ex ...what a refurb job ...respect ..first class CAD ...cardboard aided design ..which as a retired electomechanical engineer i totally approve of ...am using it myself LOL.
This will only come out on high days and holidays and is now sporting its new personal plate
The honda lump has been piggy back chipped and quite frankly its very very rapid and she sticks like glue, and cornering is phenommonal
New carpet set manufactured to original factory templates arrived today ...pile must be 12 mm thick and
will also fit glass mat sound proofing to the interior skin .This is a ...in my humble opinion...a timeless looking vehicle with endless potential both cosmetically and mechanically
This is also a great owners club with a really friendly bunch of peeps ...Pics will follow as no doubt pleas for guidance and help
kind regards
Chris Capps :wink:
