Hi to all of you.
It has been a long time but I'm back and just updated my site with building5 before I announced it to you here now.
Not that I haven't been building, indeed. My house has been improved and that took me a long time but it was worth it. Sorry for my not so correct english all the time, but hé, I'm from the Netherlands and at least try to keep up!
I used the search button yesterday to see my log-in-name and saw that it was 2007 oktober for the last time... Uploading my site by ftp took me half an hour to get the settings right.
Thanks to all of you, I've been watching you and your progress. Compliments to ALL OF YOU.
Special word to Gooster, I love the colour of your car but there are so many pictures and different colours (even on google) that it is hard to see the exact colour. I loved the Ford thisthel purple but when I may choose between a colour more likely to red than purple, I am thinking of the Jaguar black cherry metalic too. Hope you don't mind ?
I did a lot of work, started 6 months ago !
I'm still happy with my ford V6 cosworth, hope to hear it in a few months. Have never heard it, bought it in 2004 !
Most important to announce here reagrding registration is that there are yet 2 kitcars approved by the RDW over here in the Netherlands. That's more like your IVA but with even more rules to worry.
- I need to approve the seatbelt connections. I believe a written statement that they can keep up with a force of 5000 kg if I'm correct.
- Also the sound: in 2nd and 3th gear with full throttle not more then 76 db if I'm correct.
- Also tax has been changed over here. We call it 'slurptax' which is a formula to get more tax if you have more power realted to weight => who makes the air dirty needs to pay.
Fair rule itself; but @#$*&^% if you have 197 BHP !
Nevertheless, I'm more than happy to build at this point. Relief 2 weeks ago when the batterie got connected and lights were there at the front !
If I have my alternatorbracket changed I'm to the point of starting in the next months. Fingers crossed.
Quality up till now is good.
One thing I hope to buy when I have the plates on it and am allowed to drive on the road is wired wheels. I've seen them and really love it. Rims now are painted and correct for the first setup and "burning rubber". After it I think I will be more civilized or at least more controlled and think that I treat myself with wired wheels.
Just saw the red Marlin from Peterux for sale. Thanks to you too for detailled pictures on your site.
Not to forget THE REST of you like Patrick and Richard which helped me at the initial start.
And ALSO the Cabrio builders : nice to see.
At a certain point I was more looking at your websites then doing anything by myself, but all of you kept me willing to work on it again.
And it will be beautiful !
