The first nose cone for Aussie Invader 5R has been taken from our recently finished mould and the project has taken a giant leap forward with the pre-production fibreglass nose cone being fitted to the car.

This version will be used to ascertain correct location of inspection hatches, fixings and the support frame. The inner wheel clearances and the anticipated debris from the front wheels will also pose a challenge and need be taken into account when modifying the mould prior to a carbon fibre nose being produced.

The nose really gives the car some great visual appeal and starts to make Aussie Invader 5R look more like the computer generated images we have published.

Thanks must go to Swarbrick Yachts for producing the mould and the first nose cone and the committee at the All Ford Day who contributed financial sponsorship to help make this happen. We will be posting better images soon, but wanted to share these as soon as we had them.
