Bad news I'm afraid - I have had a second seizure and spent a few more days in hospital. This has left me with sight and mobility issues which may take a long time to clear up. The farmer who I am renting my workshop space from also wants his outbuilding back as he is getting on in years and his son wants to turn it into living space.
It has been difficult to make up my mind but I have decided that I will completely give up on the kit car field so anyone who wants moulds to make a 275GTB please send me a private message.

Hi George
I'm terribly sorry to hear your bad news and just want to say that I've always enjoyed your build story and wish you all the best to get over this latest trauma. I hope recovery is quicker than expected.
Best wishes

Hi George,

Very sorry to hear the news.

Best wishes to you and your family in making a satisfactory recovery.
Sorry too that the creation of your 275GTB will be with someone else.

Regards, Kidge

Thanks for your good wishes everyone. I am not absolutely certain to give up on my Z3 donor (yet!).

Hi all,
After a stroke and 4 seizures my wife has finally persuaded me to give up making a kit car - and I have to say I agree with her. So if you want to buy a nearly finished 275gtb look-alike send your mobile number to 07970 994613 and I will send you some pictures.
George

George,

I'm really sorry to hear you have to part ways, but maybe it's not too late?

Something to consider- maybe you could trade your 275 molds, if you haven't already sold them, to someone who would finish the body, paint, and interior on your z3/275. I would offer to do this if you were in the states.

Well, I have had a 5th seizure and have finally given in. If anyone wants to buy the project as it stands please send me a private message, otherwise it will go on eBay. If you would like to see what it SHOULD look like when finished then take a look at Egdik's effort on http://www.madabout-kitcars.com/foru...0828#post90828
Good luck!

SOLD! That's it, with great regrets, I have to say goodbye to everyone. Thank you, all for your good wishes and maybe I will see you at a kitcar show in the future.

All the best George. I will try to do my project justice to the 275 and attempt to replicate half of your passion. Take care and check in every once in a while on all our progress. Keep well. Cheers Mark.
