Fitting the Diff

It’s been two and a half years since my chassis arrive and I’ve just fitted the first part! Whoop whoop!! Once again aiming for the world’s slowest build. I finally got to the stage last week where I was happy enough with the differential to have a go at fitting. Here’s a picture of it […]

Right tools for the job

So… This little beastie arrived in the post today. I’m properly excited to get out in the garage and give it a try this weekend! All being well this will allow me to strip down my running gear. Free internet points if you know what it is and what I’m likely to be removing with […]

What a diff-erence

So, it’s been a little while again! I’ve come to terms with the fact that this is going to be a pretty slow build and don’t intend to do an apologetic post every time I take ages over the next piece. I’ve done some rough estimates though and at the current pace I should be […]

Making a Build Stand

I imagine this is the case with any family man who buys a kit car… I’ve had chance to do practically nothing with it over the past couple of months. It’s simply sat on the floor gathering dust while I try to stop the kids dropping their bikes on it, or my 18 month old […]

The Chassis Has Landed!

About a month ago, the day finally arrived! Mike and Janine from RoadRunner Racing kindly did the 400+ mile round trip to drop of my chassis. Here are a couple of pictures of it in the RoadRunner workshop before it went off for powder coating. Wish I had a stand like that to carry out […]

Keeping Track of Costs

As I said in my previous post, I know that I’ve underestimated how much this is going to cost me. When I’m finished I’d like to know how much I’ve spent (to the penny). I’d also like to know how much money I think I have left to spend at all times. With this goal […]
