That roll bar looks a little undersized :eek: :D

Are you sure it will be strong enough!!!!! :D

Joking aside though it looks really good

gingea1pom 29th November 2009 07:05 PM

It looks just fantastic. This is why the forum is great, it’s the little things we notice I mean axel stands on wheels,:D I am making myself some of them.

Build looks great and I really like the chunky roll bar.

Cheers Ginge

Bonzo 29th November 2009 07:14 PM


That is some cracking progress that you have made :cool:

The build looks fantastic :)

Can't believe how clean & tidy that workshop is .................OMG.........I am working in a Pig sty :o :D

Well done Janne

Bonzo 29th November 2009 07:17 PM

Just noticed the alloy wheels Janne :cool:

I'll have first dibbs on the set you don't use :D :D

squbti 29th November 2009 08:57 PM

Hi Janne, that looks great, nice job. I also started in april & hope to have mine on 4 weels before x-mas .

HandyAndy 30th November 2009 09:35 AM

Hi Janne,
wow :cool: your Roadster looks great, very nice indeed,
one prob tho..... steering wheel is on wrong side :eek: :D

and that workshop is TOO clean & tidy:o


Janne E 4th December 2009 08:21 PM

I donīt like couriers!!!!!!!!

Thankīs for the nice words about my build and workshop
The rollbar is 76mm I thought 50mm will be a bit girly:D

I worked as a racemechanic for a few years and they banged in it in my head that everything must be in order and cleaned up before you got a beer

The build standing a bit still for the moment because of couriers:mad:

Emma sent my parts from England the 18:th of November.
The 23:th at 9.00am DPD came with ONE parcel -the nosecone
At 10.00am DHL came with ONE parcel - the seats
At 3.00pm UPS came with ONE parcel - the bonnet, dashboards...

At 26:th Shenker called and said that they have a delivery for me a stope of 153kg!!!!!!!!
The 27:th they come with ONE parcel 16kg!!!! -the rear panel and the wings.
The rear panel and a front wing AND a rear wing was damaged:(

I waited over the weekend but no sidepanels come. At tuesday evning I mailed Emma and ask if she could track it for me.

But at the same time the courier had come back with the sides to her, they thought it was to LONG:mad:

Some times I think someone is sitting at the couriers office laughing at me!!

Hope you all will have a great weekend Janne

HandyAndy 4th December 2009 08:43 PM

Hi Janne,

we at Saturn are also aware that shipping to mainland Europe is not easy, the side panels are the main concern.

In fact , today i have been contacting various Road Haulage companies & have invited them to come to discuss our requirements for shipping the bodywork sets.
I,m trying to arrange a company that will take the kits "by Road", it may take a little longer but hopefully will solve the problem .

will keep you updated if i find a solution :)


Janne E 5th December 2009 09:57 AM

Andy: I think thats the way, send it by road. Put all the parts except the sides in two or three big "paperboxes" and fill it up with something.
It must harder to throw a big box for the couriers:D

My steeringwheel is at the right side itīs in some small islands the drive at the left side:D :D


spud69 5th December 2009 10:03 AM

The plan is to send the kits out on a single Euro palet, but again its the side panels causing the problem. They are very large and vulnerable. Two reps are coming in on Tuesday for road haulage so should have some answers then.

Janne if there is anything we can do about the damaged parts then please let us know, i'm sure we can work something out. The only problem is the red Gel-Coat, due to the pigment colour anything with red in is very expensive.


Tilly819 5th December 2009 05:45 PM

Looks great, really coming on, i really like to see things like, this, its very inspiring and otivating, also brings back fond memiries of that shage of the build, i try and forget about the cursing and long sleepless nights

Fantastic work, keep it up


Spikehaus 5th December 2009 06:40 PM

You keep your workshop so clean, how did you avoid oil staining the floor and grinding dust everywhere? Top marks! The roll bar is great, mine sundry brackets and heavily over engineered to! Especially the engine mounds in 10 mm stock!

teun 5th December 2009 08:02 PM

Looking great. The moment i know how to post pictures i will put some of my build on this forum. But 1 question how easy is it to get a regestration on your home build car in sweden? Here in Holland it is very hard most people first go to england for a anglisch reg. and than import the car in Holland. But that way is very expensive:mad: So i was wondering how do you do that in sweden?

Janne E 26th February 2010 08:40 PM

A little update, today I paint the chassi all the other parts I also got a e-mail from Saturn with pictures of my replacements parts they look real good:D

BUT I almost got a heartattack today:eek:

I should just start spray the chassi then the garage start shaking like an earthquake:eek:

I run outside the garage and found out that the snow (40cm) from the roof had falt down to the ground....

It is a snowbank in front of the garagedoors that is 10m long, 2.5m weid and at least 1m high.....
I just pretend that I never seen it and went in and paint the chassi....

This was the result.

HandyAndy 26th February 2010 08:56 PM

Looks really nice Janne, :cool:

your garage is bigger than my house :eek: :D

does your steering column pass through the engine mount bracket?

& may i ask what the little bracket in the passeger side footwell/transmission rail is for ?

don,t put your chassis outside............you,ll lose it in the snow :p


Janne E 26th February 2010 09:05 PM

Handy I show instead.....

spud69 26th February 2010 09:05 PM

Looking really good Janne - very nice paint finish, anja says that its gonna get scratched easily though - women - they just don't get it do they......:p

Thanks for the sweeties, me and Andy have been playing toy cars all afternoon. Just need this bloody rain to clear and start playing real cars.

I,ve seen your bodywork ( spud & I packaged it ), its a great colour, can,t wait to see it on the car.

keep the photos coming.


alga 5th April 2010 08:35 PM

The chassis in silver looks very advanced, like an aeroplane rather than a car.
I was jealous for a moment, but then realised I haven't started painting the chassis yet, so it's still an option.

twinturbo 5th April 2010 08:37 PM

Do you have a picture of your pipe clips, and a supplier?


spud69 5th April 2010 08:46 PM

That chassis is looking FANTASTIC Janne, especially in silver.

Looking forward to seeing it with the bodywork on again.....;)

Well Done.....AndyH

SeriesLandy 5th April 2010 09:51 PM

Looking really nice. The silver looks great for the chassis.

They look something like this Ģ1.17 each from cbs
Or Ģ0.75 fromEuropa.

twinturbo 5th April 2010 10:01 PM

Ahhh yeah.. I looked on CBS but could not see em..

Not cheap @ Harry Potter Sport.. ( Quideach ;) )

But then P Clips aint Cheap either..


Bonzo 5th April 2010 10:12 PM

Brilliant stuff Janne
Your chassis is looking superb.

I think I may very well have found my new chassis colour :D :D

One can certainly see that there is some high quality work going on there :cool: :)

Janne E 6th April 2010 07:29 AM

Thanks for the nice words:D

About the clips I think I got them from Merlin:rolleyes:

Handy I think there will be a little surprise even for you ...

HandyAndy 6th April 2010 09:26 AM

now , I like surprises :D :D

what what what is it??? :)


Janne E 21st April 2010 03:07 PM

Time for a little uppgrade!!

The chassi is almost done and itīs on wheels.

So now I started with the engine and gearbox, first I took it outside for big washup.
Then i took it all apart and cleaned it all up.
I will replace the bearings shells the piston rings, oil and waterpump the camshaft bearings. I got a new camshaft a Kent cam FR32. The head will be skimmed for 1.5mm and I will modify it a little bit. The flywhell is about 1.5kg lighter. At the top it will be a pair of dellorto 40mm.
It will not be a raceengine but I hope for about 130-140hp:)

Regards Janne

spud69 21st April 2010 03:26 PM

Very nice Janne....;)

Garage looks far too clean and tidy, some nice gear there to.

Well Done and keep it up....AndyH

HandyAndy 21st April 2010 07:51 PM

Roadster is looking very nice Janne :cool:

looking forward to seeing the engine running video & some bodywork fitted.


Janne E 4th August 2010 06:35 PM

Hi Guys!

Itīs been a long time since I uppdated, but here it comes :)
My health has been bad for a few months so everything I do takes much moore time

So what has happened...

The engine is done and painted, the brakes is done and I have mounted some of the bodywork and a lot of other small things....
The nosecone has hinges in the bottom so I can flip it if I want.


Janne E 4th August 2010 06:53 PM

Some moore pictures....

HandyAndy 4th August 2010 07:01 PM

WOW Janne....That is stunning :cool:

The car really is looking very nice indeed, :cool:

I,ve just noticed the steel plate across the top part of the front upper wishbone brackets, nice touch

I must ask......how do you keep your workshop so tidy ? :eek: :D

won,t be long before you,re on the road?
