Front Tow Stap and Timing Transponder

More work has been completed on the front of the car this time.  The bumper was removed and the front air conditioning condensors were taken out to reduce a bit of weight.  These were fitted directly in-front of the water radiators which can be seen in the photo below.
The front tow strap was fitted in the same manner as the rear and the timing transponder (the small red box) was also fitted.  This is a mandatory item for racing and is positioned 30-60cm's off the road facing down towards the track.  Each unit has a unique serial no. which will enable the circuit timing systems to pickup our car as it travels over the timing strip buried into the track surface on the start/finish line.
The bumper also had some paint and a clear coat applied to cover some previous damage and was re-fitted.
