Indeed. kartman's comment on the Atom's 20,000 cost doesn't mention that it uses all new parts. There are quite a number of other bike-engined-car kits about and I'm sure the build of few comes to...

Re: Swirl Pot

That's disappointing. Surely the fuel tank should have baffles? I understood that a single plate (with cutouts) down the middle of the tank was adequate for this, so it's not like it'd cost much to...

Just my opinion, but you'd be crazy to take it off the road, now you have a running car. I mean, the whole point of buying the ex-demo was to have something you could drive now. Have fun with it, get...

Nonsense! Everyone fails first time - don't worry about. :eusa_boohoo:

That doesn't sound like too much of a bad result to me - I don't know about the rear brakes locking or the brake pedal...

A thread on LocostBuilders (http://locostbuilders.co.uk/viewthread.php?tid=31683) suggests gluing the rivnut with "liquid steel" before insertion or using aviation grade "nutplates".

On any vehicle you're allowed to fit new (& zeroed) clocks, but "clocking" (changing the milage shown on clocks already fitted) is still illegal.

I believe that in this case clocking is permitted,...

Re: cat

Thanks! Any idea when they started fitting k-series engines to the 200?

A 1994 engine is more likely to be high-milage, but presumably once SVA has been completed and an age-related plate fitted a...

Re: immobiliser

How come you don't need a cat? I thought that most all 5exis would require one for SVA.

Dead right. And when you've done so read The Kit Car Manual (Haynes) by Iain Ayre.

He claims that a kit car is likely to be largely unscathed in an accident with a production car, which'll more...

I hadn't believed that the 1800 was only available except as VVT, but I'll look out for one in that case.

I understood that the cat decreased power & that it was common, if illegal, to remove them...

Sorry if these questions have all been asked before, but I went to my local breakers yesterday & got confused, so any pointers would be appreciated.

I don't know if a second pair of hands can be useful for drilling & rivnutting, but just let me know if you'd like me to pop up & help out.

Re: hose problem

Wouldn't copper pipe be ideal for this? I don't think that stainless steel is completely immune to corrosion, and that copper pipe is consequently used in domestic heating systems.
