This photo shows the perfect fit of the components. Owner builder, Peter Weston, says:-

"If you want to use any of these photos please do, I think they show the finite fitment of parts that is achieved when using a kit, we would never achieve this accuracy in a hundred years if cutting ourselves, let alone the time factor."
