I was going to say 250 from a k03 is highly optimistic.

I wouldn't seem weld the whole thing, the first bump you hit and it'll rip, even the rally teams stitch weld them, stich two inches.... leave two inches etc.

This will make the shell amazingly strong.

If you seam weld it along the whole length it becomes too stiff and will rip in the event of a prang.

That's a bad thing.

Two inch stitch seems a long way, I would have thought an inch was more like it, but then I have never prepped a race car!

Either or either Mark,

I do know prodrive did two inch stitches, I just used that as a rule of thumb.
