A long drawn out build that is now at least road legal (from February 2015) after lots of red tape issues.

Road legal, but unfinished! Other issues such as the house, extensive travel, racing commitments with the organisation of a successful race series and competing with the Marcos, not to mention a recent hand operation, have slowed things down a bit (a lot!) and one or two minor teething issues have now been resolved.

When I get back late September, I'll try and at least get the fibreglass bonnet/hood and boot/trunk lid finished and painted.

The burr walnut interior that took so much time and effort may have to be replaced too, as it has sadly been slightly damaged due to other extensive work.

Anyway, for most details of the build saga to date, go to: []

A full article for this website will only be done when it looks finished! Interior shot was taken 2011, just shows how long it has taken and very little real progress since then. Woodrim steering wheel still to be fitted.
