Best place to try and find one is to ring Pete at Shelsley Cars and see if he knows of anyone selling. Price wise, I've seen them anywhere from 6k to 20 depending on the spec & condition. Mine has cost over 30k to build so far but I do know people that have built theirs for 14k or lower.

Looks good Chris.

That exhaust manifold though.... Will need to go. Not cheap I know.

Grant does them at GBE I think.

Could try you luck with that exhaust paint. See how it goes.

it looks worse in the photos than in real life, plus it's never get seen again once the top scuttle panel is put back in place...


Plus I had to lighten the picture of the engine as it was a little under exposed

Bit of an update, most of the fuel and oil hoses are finished now although it is a little tight in the engine bay now... solid engine mounts might be needed!

How all goes well tomorrow Chris. Fingers and toes crossed for you.

Though it's only registration is it not?

really it's whether they Q or not, I have 90% receipts for new parts and I have a reconditioned certificate for the gearbox but no receipt so it depends on how they see it I guess - plus 100+ build photos

Well, even though I didn't get all major components supplied by SC I still need a certificate of newness :/ plus even though the gearbox recon cert says "fully rebuilt and reconditioned" they won't accept it as it doesn't say "reconditioned to as new"

Just paperwork and words that need sorting then?

Can you get a certificate of newness from SC?

And get the gearbox place to reword the cert?

Hopefully I've spoken to the gearbox place and they are re-doing the recon cert/writing a letter reconfirming it being reconditioned to "as new" and I should be able to get a cert. from SC but it's just annoying and time consuming as I can only get to the DVLA on Wednesdays - but it looks like a new reg. will be going on it

Sounds like a good place to meet. About 2-3 hours away for me. It will have to wait until mine's on the road though. Might not be until late Autumn though. Purley financial. Car is nearly there. Just needs more than anything, exhaust and mapping.$$$$$
