Hi all, trying (again) to get my long over due project going again

Postby Gr8fun » Tue Jan 01, 2019 9:32 pm

Hi everyone
I started building my book Locost 20 (yes, twenty) years ago. I'm based near Southampton.
I've various excuses for my slow progress but find myself building motivation at long last to restart the project.
I'm in a far superior position now than when I started, so I'm hoping I can make progress and keep motivated to the end.
Originally it was to be 2l pinto powered but as there are better engines to bolt to the type 9 I may pursue a zetec or similar (I'm open to other suggestions) - I've still got time to make that decision.

Welcome!!
as Mike says, we've got some Locost experts on here but plenty of other advice available too. What stage is the build at now? Good luck and keep going.

HI

Well,

Mike says im a specialist!!! I do think hes lost the plot ! :lol:

Well, mine. also Richard (Locost220) , also Tony T are locostors, not sure what book they built from, as neither of their cars are as pretty as mine !
joking aside, all our cars are good, and book built, and mine has been on the road since 1998, 20 years, I cant believe it myself

Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at

Hi there, welcome back to the game, New Years resolution by any chance ?.
As the others have said there are plenty willing to offer help and advise.
I built mine to the second edition book and SVA 2008, she in the midst of a little bit of work at the moment so might look the same as yours :D originally pinto and changing to ST170 at mo.
Give us all an idea of your issues and some pics speak many words and sure we will try and help.
