    The first picture is from @Keith his Type RA Spec C 16” body shell

    and the second picture is from the ex Bertie Fisher car where they added these inserts/brackets

    it looks like the added these braces from a new adge body shell

    The spec c also has the strengthening plates on the front subframe brackets on the rails.

    Looks like your correct Huub @hct :thumb Great detective work :nerd:

    Still I wonder why they would do that? Especially to an original GpA shell? Perhaps they were concerned about the integrity of the original shell? Or its a known weak spot on the shells so they took the opportunity whilst the shell was undergoing the restoration? I've got no idea really, I'm still hoping to get an answer soon from the nice chaps at Autosportif Engineering Ltd.

    Who knows what gear ratios were used on gravel, with the H pattern 6 speed including final drive?
