We did even less fancy ducting to that on the carpi and it made a chalk and cheese difference to water temperatures. That looks proper racecar mint 

Nice, I'm keen to see how this goes. I got turbo lazy and just duct taped it together for now (I'm pretty time poor at the mo). Might fold and rivet some corner pieces this week to make sure it holds together, although it feels super strong.

Just saw your video 

 

Please go and check your seat mounting, your seat is moving around way to much for my liking

 

Here's a recent example where a seat mounting broke, note that it was a low speed crash in the scheme of things and the belts could probably have been a little tighter...

You can see the seat moving around prior, but a lot less then yours...

Ended up with damaged ribs.

New seat mounts are on my to do list already. It's solidly mounted to 50x3mm strap that's welded to the floor, but either the floor, mounts or the seat itself must be getting a bit of flex. It's pretty tiring to drive, so a more solid mount will likely take some of that load off too. 

I've definitely got a few jobs to do before the next outing though.......
