Date of first registration for benchmark of who,what,when, where and why.

There could be data protection act issues keeping personal details,dont blame me but her indoors has just done a course on it and has been bending my ear about records I keep on customers and their vehicles and would hate someone to get grief for it.

The plaque is a great idea !

Default chassis is on wheels

Chassis is on wheels.
A few more brackets and details needed before I can paint it.
Fabby things bought so I can start the bodywork this summer.
Should be ready for the annual track day with handicapped children october 2010. Isn't that a good cause ? For this purpose, a by-the-Book Seven with a standard 2 liter Pinto should be sufficient.
Will do the occasional track day, sharing with my sons and daughter, but building the thing was the main goal.

I am sure this can be worked around - ask her indoors to try Caldicott for challanging guidelines!

Wouldn't want to keep personal details to be honest - if we could have a thread/section called "Completed Cars" with just the builders/owners username, completion date, plaque number and a photo, then it will just be a log. If need be, it could be an admin only section so they add the post?
There would need to be some process of getting confirmation of finish/reg date for the plaques, but again, open to suggestions. I am trust-worthy and can provide references if need be! ;-)

i,ll second Slimtater to collate the info/verification for the plaque allocation, maybe a copy of the IVA pass certificate, just so its shows the date of pass & builders name, so as no other personal details are shown,

would forum members be happy with that?

"I am trust-worthy and can provide references if need be!
Solicitor,probation officer,personal officer ?
Only joking Slim, I wont ask her because she can talk underwater without O2
and forgets to stop,even in her sleep ! I really cant be bothered tonight.

It's still a good idea and who knows how long in the future the forum and original contributors will continue to contribute,bearing in mind "The new book"
we will have a new toy to make after the Roadster and I hope it brings as much dubious pleasure to one and all as the Roadster has.

Dont let Stevie Wonder proof read it Mr Haynes !
