Update Friday 1st February 2008
Well I can't quite believe we are into Feb already!
The Isuzu is still away being fixed! (Well that's fixed when they've worked out what's wrong with it) but even without it we have managed to get the body back to the workshop for the final build.
The engine bay has been painted. It is now classified by us as 'Baileys Cream' coloured or alternatively 'old Irish cream'.
The chassis is finished and has been turned into a fully completed chassis, engine, gearbox, prop shaft, diff, drive shafts, brakes etc etc.
All that remains is to fibreglass the rear wings to the body, finish all fibreglassing underneath and then attach the body to the chassis and complete the build.
Once the body is back up the right way I will drop a photo onto the blog to show what colour it actually is. That should be later in the week if everything goes according to plan.
The dash will shortly be sent away for veneering and the speedo for calibration. The new windscreen feet have been polished and returned to the foundry to have a pair cast in brass. Once they return they will be polished and sent away for chroming.
I still remain optimistic that we are there or thereabouts as far as the completion date is concerned and still hope that the car will be launched at the kit car show at Stoneleigh on May 4th.
Will be back next week to provide the next instalment. Thanks to all of you who have emailed us with comments of enthusiasm. It really does help to know that there are others out there who would like to see the car back in production and are wishing us well.
