==================================================

Post on this thread to:

1. To be added to the list. Post URL, engine type and size, and gearbox type.
2. To add information where "??" (indicates unknown) is shown.
3. If any links need correcting i.e. are incorrect or have become dead.
4. Point out any other errors/omissions
5. Suggest improvements

Above the following line will be kept current as we get more information on diaries and galleries.
Below the following line is my original post that started the thread.
----------------------------------------------------------------

I, now and again, have a trawl of the Internet for Haynes Roadster build diaries. To have a read of what others are doing

and to look at pictures of their builds. I have also learnt a lot from Ash's build in CKC, and find reading and seeing

other's builds an inspiration and good for picking up tips too.

I have two here:

Beardy John - http://www.beardyjohn.com/index.html
Diary of a Roadster (Kit Car) - http://www.tamarisktechnicals.com/pages/roadster.html

The first seems to be dorment, no recent posts
The second is very comprehensive

Maybe forum members might like to post links to other Haynes Roadster builders' diaries that they've found on this thread,

then we can build up a list of diaries.

I'd be happy to colate the thread now and again so as all the links are in a single post.

I've also come across some very comprehensive Locost build diaries, from stripping the donor to IVA, should we include these,

or try and make it Haynes only?

What do you think?

P.S. Just found owner of Tamarisk Technicals site - after having a crusie round Locost Builders, it's AdrianH!

Gallery 2

Around 400 pics in total and I normally update every week or so. I try and take pics of some of the less interesting bits so may be of use to some builders. High quality copies of any of the pics available on request (in total I got 1.2gb of pics of the build!!)

Cheers

Dave

Headshot,

Had a look at your blog and appreciate it is early days, are you planning to get pictures up on there? We like pictures.

Also, poking my nose in now, you could put a link in your signature then we could always find the blog.

Steps back into the shadows!

Cheers Ginge
