Hi all.

So you've just joined, why not say a few words to introduce yourself - a bit about you, your car - whatever!

Hi all, Many thanks for all your replies. Have gotten to the last bits before an IVA i hope, just need to sort a rear boot cover and finally decide if i should re design my tunnel cover and gear stick gaiter, am not totally happy with it seeing as it's about 14 years old and probably in need of a rethink.

Cheers guys, Even with a 10 year hiatus it's still a long build :D

I think I only have to sort out the bike carbs, install rubber soft trim to my f/glass seats, fit an IVA compliant relay set up from CBS to make my fog light switch new IVA compliant and cover my steering column to hide the std switch cabling.
So by the time i receive a reply from the DVLA about a chassis number, I can then start the IVA application.
I can't wait to drive it on the roads

Hi all, well just an update. I took the car for a fill up with fuel and drove it to my local mot guy to get the chassis plate welded in. when i got to him i found out that i had a petrol tank leak so had to drain out what was left so that the welding could carry on. Got it back home and tried to strip out the tank, but it wouldn't come out so just managed to get to the offending cover plate and strip that off too, cleaned it all up and resealed it and all seams good now. So that was refitted, and moved onto the lack of caster angle.
Found about 3mm of movement on the top wish bones which when rebuilt and test driven it felt so much better i couldn't stop smiling. It still isn't enough for the IVA test, so I'll be doing the same on the lower wishbones and moving them forward by hopefully the same 3mm.

The trials of building a kit car eh !!!

Better to find these problems before IVA, sounds like you're making progress :)
