Default Mikes 1/2 Build (was Loco Bills) ...

Hi all, New to forum. As tittle suggests carrying on Loco Bills build. Not a scratch build but sure it will be challenging enough for me.
Aim to build / Finnish car I want at best price / time possible, been collecting few parts over past couple of years. Aim to get it finished by November 2018 (40th).
Images to follow shortly... best free hosting?
Mike

Welcome to the forum Mike!

What is the built based on: Sierra or MX-5?

+1 for Flickr. I've been using it for years, it is very intuitive to use, and you can easily share pictures in here with BB code. (avoid Photobucket!)

Last question: how could you manage to register to the forum? I thought administrators blocked all new subscriptions. Could you please let us know, so other people who would like to become members could see how it is done. Thanks!

But it is good to see that new member can still subscribe

Hi Guys
Thank you for the recommendation, Will setup shortly and get some pics up.
The car is Sierra based.
How it came about was the gearbox first, a couple of years ago I acquired a six speed Caterham box and that was the start. Now I have loco Bills frame and parts collected over a year or so. I'm going to put a duratec in (stock other than a set of throttle bodies, mega squirt & lightened fly wheel) to start with.
Cleaning up diff at momment, just brought blast cab.

The forum I clicked the contact at botterm, then got a email back with the email of who to contact. Don't think I should publicly post it...?
