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.

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!

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 So i was wondering how do you do that in sweden?

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

BUT I almost got a heartattack today

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

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.

Looks really nice Janne,

your garage is bigger than my house

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

cheers
andy
