Hello!

Always good to see another builder starting out on the road with good intentions. Even if they get slightly stretched....

looking forward to some nice pics

Saturn MX5 Based Chassis, Limited Slip Diff & 2.4 Quick Rack.

Build cost.... seems to be spending more on tools than car bits at the moment! (they will be handy in the future though).
Car iva'd and passed 15/08/2014. Finished weight 572kg.

It's a sierra set up with type 9 tunnel

Think I'll try and squeeze a nice merlin engine in there must be one down the museum they won't miss

Not sure what engine yet to be honest I like the idea of a bike engine but not sure long term it will be a good idea and the mrs wants to be able to drive it as well so I'm think either 2.0 black top or 1.8 series both on bike carbs but there's a long way to go yet so who nos what may happen

And I brought it off jonathan goes by jmh on the roadster forum

He has the other chassis on eBay

Hi Mark,
You're in good hands on here. Any of these guys will give you any advice you need to get your car on the road... just ask away.

Look forward to your build photos.

There is an example and explanation on page 85 of the book if all you need is an idea.

Cheers
