Ginge and i decided this is worth making a sticky in the announcements section as there is some good resources for all builders.

I think it would be even more helpful if all the links listed which engine the build is using next to the name of the person whose diary it is.

This would help other builders find engine/gearbox specific information more easily than having to read each diary until they find it.

Both good ideas.

If you're on the list already let already let me know what engine you are using (type and size), and I'll add it in, and I'll tidy up some of the ugly URLs as well while I'm at it.

If you want to be on the list, URL, engine type and size please.

Anyone found any non-member build diaries for Haynes Roadster that can be added?

Also, do we want links to Locost build diaries or not (in a seperate section)?

What do people think?

Ok, my build is based around an I4 2.0 DOHC engine mated to an MT75 5 speed box.

Thanks for the info. chaps. Where if have placed "??", it means I don't know. If you let me know I can add it in with the next update.

P.S. If you're are wondering why I'm idling my time on here in the day and not at work, it's 'cos I'm on holiday for the week! I've been clearing out the garage (for the third time) ready to start on my build.

Earlier on in the week I welded up a welding cart, to get some welding practice in, just needs some hooks welded on for cables and the torch then painting. Next on to building the build table. Bought some trestles via eBay for £5. The metal type that builders use. Was going to use wood for the build table legs but will use the trestles now and rest/attached a stiffened bit of ply to the top. The trestles are high but I think this will be good as I won't have to bend down to work.

So back to the garage... or maybe just sit in the garden....

eSteve,

A sterling job you are doing. I am using a type 9 attached to my 1.8 CVH I am guessing thatís what the ?? Where for.

Building the bits that you need to build the car is as rewarding as ploughing on with the build.

Cheers Ginge
