New Project Update 3rd November 2002
Work has continued fitting all the items I require to get a working car. These items are mainly to do with the plumbing and wiring. I spent 2 days just sorting out where all the plumbing will go and what items I require.
It is quite difficult thinking how all the wires and pipes will run through the car, especially with so many removable panels. Also I wish to run all these items along the floor to keep the weight low!
I am currently doing little else except build the car. I go out a maximum of once a week and allow myself one bike ride a week (if the weather is good). This car will be finished soon!
