Good to see you back building again. Are you going to post any more YouTube updates soon? I used to enjoy watching those. David

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.

I must say I am looking forward to seeing this progress. I think I started to build my chassis around the same time and then I stopped for a few year because of having kids. I also second the you tube bit I did quite like watching your progress

Finally found the calipers I needed! Amazing how hard new Cosworth vented rear calipers are to find without costing 500+, Also found some new Jaguar X Type front calipers to fit 300mm disks wooooo! Cant wait to fit!

The last of the caliper parts arrived back today!
Jaguar X-Type front calipers to go on ST170 300mm disks.
Cosworth Scorpio vented rear calipers to go on 273mm rear disks.
So hard to find all the parts but finally got there! It's going to be a busy summer with loads and loads of updates so keep an eye on the page and YouTube!

I don't suppose any of you know the length of bolts used for the sierra calipers to the hub? I seem to have lost my originals! Doh!
