Cool A warm welcome.

A very warm welcome to the forum Chris

There's nothing stopping you from starting to gather some of the bits you need

Who knows what Santa may bring

Good luck with the build when you start

Chris,

Welcome. Finally someone who is in the next county and only an hour away.

I know you have not started yet but if you would like to pop over to talk about any thing roadster any time just give me a shout. I have a few weeks of (5) before Christmas.

I am 80% through my chassis build, excluding wishbones, and went to see AshGs almost finished roadster, we talked Roadster for two hours and it was great, really inspiring and a picked up loads of tips. Its good to talk

Any time mate.

Ginge

Thumbs up Time for an update ??

I notice that we have had quite a few new builders joining the forum recently

Time for an update to the list per chance

Nice to keep this list up to date

I am sure that the great range of parts supplyers, we have within the forum, find this thread very usefull to gauge possible future demand for new products

Perhaps this thread could be made a sticky

Started about 18 months ago but project stalled for quite a long while after a period of being unemployed. The joys of our times. Started working in a barn but have recently had to bring the car home and into my small garage.

Using a bmw 318 e36 as a donor - cheap and plentyful.

HI All,

Paul from down under here,

I started building mine 5 months ago but I would
be lucky if I got 3 full days equiv per mth. I am using
a nissan sr20de n/a, cortina front uprights and nissan
pintara live axle and will ride on 17 in wheels.

Paul

p.s If I had access to all the parts that the UK guys
have I would be close to finishing. You guys are so
lucky.
