Top engine bay rail bracing

Top engine bay rail bracing

During assembly further improvements were made to strengthen the engine bay by adding two more bracing tubes to increase the rigidity of the top outer rail.  The engine bay is large enough to accomodate this improved design and they could have been included in the original construction but it was not clear at that stage whether the engine would clear these tubes.
