Default Build diary updated

Hi Folks, I have updated my build diary at www.deepfolly.co.uk It's still behind where I actually am but I will update it again soon. I have now completed and primed my chassis, I have made the rear uprights, the lower wishbones are all done but not painted fully yet. Next job will be the upper wishbones, followed by the floor, pedal box, brakes, steering and the diff / driveshafts. The wiring to the back will go in at the same time as the brake pipes to the rear, I will do them with the chassis on it's side to make life easier. I reckon I will be finished by this time next week
Best regards to all and all that.
Dave

Looking good there Dave, keep up the good work and the updates. I haven't achieved anything significant in my build for a couple of weeks so no updates from me yet.

Hi Andy, the chassis is going to be black, the wings, nosecone and scuttle will be Kawasaki green, the bonnet, rear panel and side panels will be in white.
Dave, we all build at different speeds, I have had too much time on my hands recently so progress has been swift(ish). I expect it will slow down as the job progresses. I have very little cash left in the build fund now so I can only go as far as the bits I have in hand will allow me to.
Dave.

Cool Great stuff

Brilliant progress there Dave .... I must say .... A very informative & entertaining read.

Sorry .... I did have a chuckle at your misshap

It's a sort of West country tradition ..... If you see a Cornishman laughing, look for someone with a broken leg

Glad you are OK though, that could have been very nasty indeed

Great work, well impressed mate
