That's looking beautifully put together mate.
Well, what if you used the Supersport 3-points to get the car's MOT, and then used the aircraft style later on when you get the money?
Excellent Machine, GOO
Looking pretty sweet.
How long until she gets a coat of paint?
Not until I've got her IVA'd, and I can fit the windscreen. I'm not fitting it now as that would mean I'd need to sort out some demisters, which is a silly requirement in an open top car.
@sparrow - I could, but I'd need to keep swapping it out every year when I go for the test (it's an annual car saftey check) - I'll see how I feel about it later on.
You're going to make it red, right?
British Racing Green
With stripes, right?
With a fake racing number.
You gotta have the Union Jacks on the doors too!

I've updated the build blog - lots of piccies in this one.
I made a start on the closure panels tonight, and like I said at the end of this entry, my seats should be here by the end of next week!
I think we always rape your site GOO - can't see anything of the update.
Really? Works OK for me... And MrsGoo, after a slight pause - I guess it's getting a little hammered.
Works for me. Thanks for the update GOO! It's all looking very nice.
How far along () would you say you are in the build?
about 95% there - I need to complete the boot panels, fit the seats and do the carpeting. I also need to do some work IVA proofing the car (nut covers, rubber edging in exposed 'sharp' corners etc), and keep chasing Marlin for my bumpers.
Apart from that, the car is functionally complete.
Damn GOO, you finally got it running. I almost thought I was going to have my project on the road before you, it still might happen if I cant get in contact with my transmission guy by the end of this week.
Blog link works for me.
As always I'm impressed. An aside: It's not unusual in the US to have two sets of 'stuff'. One for inspection time and one for the 1 or 2 days for inspection. I've even helped swap engines for a couple days to pass inspection. Wheels and tires are really common swaps. Even the States frowns on racing tires and especially slicks on the motorways.
Hide the wires with the carpet. Out of sight out of mind. Forgive the wire management critics - they probably never did this.
Good job all around.
