Default Its finished!

Well as some of you already know my car has been complete for a couple of weeks now

The only things left to do is bolt my roll bar and wing stays back on after saturn have had them powdercoated and a couple of nice easy jobs like edge trim my seats and bolt the harnessess in

The chassis no is on and registered with dvla and the iva forms are in and im just waiting for a date

I have had a little drive of the car and im absolutely chuffed with it

(it doesnt look too bad either if i may say so myself )

Thanks to anyone who has helped me when i was stuck scratching my head and thanks to Chris for writing the book and designing such a cracking car

Bring on IVA

Spud & I have seen Mark,s car over the last 8 months going from a rolling chassis to how it is in that photo & i can tell you

A photo doesn,t do the car justice, it is stunning in every respect,

Mark.... a HUGE well done mate & good luck with your IVA

cheers

Good luck m8. I am guessing it makes the mondeo feel like it's in neutral

looking great mark. not sure about the black scuttle but it certainly makes the orange pop. i really do need to get my finger out and paint my side pannels and rear tub.

one little tip. raise the ride hight as much as you can for iva she is looking a bit low on the front at the moment. if your lucky you might just scrape stoneleigh if dvla are really efficient.

That looks a really neat build.
Well done mate.

One thing I did notice is your side reapeters.
Are they in the wing mirrors only?
I thought for the IVA they need to be seen from the rear.
(Could be wrong, has happened before.. )
