My contribution:










And for a useful tuning tip with your Mazda MX-5 based kit- try one of these...


...weighs 4kg less than the extant 4-banger and produces 200 ftlbs of torque low down- bolts on to a standard MX-5 gearbox- just needs an induction system that doesn't foul the bulkhead like these throttle bodies or bike carbs- a real no-brainer if you ask me.
Get one from a Mazda MX-6, 626, Xedos 6 or a 24v Ford Probe. Apparently the ones to go for are from automatics because they have limiters fitted and won't have been thrashed.

Here's a shot I got of the A352 coming out of the building today (there's a bit of photoshop involved too )

Car Photographer - Well you certainly live up to your user name, great shots.

Did you take any photos of Ultimas?

As I would like to send a few to someone building one in America.
( With full credit where it is due. )

Cheers, Paul.

here are a couple of pictures I took, one of the lovely interior of Mr Chrismas' car, and a D type, owner unknown.

Both of them an inspiration to keep plowing on until my car is done.

The D Type exhaust is nowhere near as pretty as yours Scottie.

I'd be a fibber if I said the thought hadn't crossed my mind Ed!

I really do like the colour of this. Not sure the alloys work though.

A big thank you to all who took the time to bring their cars along for the Tribute and Nubodi stands and for talking to the public with first hand experience of building Tribute cars. The stand was very busy both days, I only managed to take these pictures as things were dying down at the end of Monday.

I've just added the SWB 250 range & some Stoneleigh 2015 photos to the Tribute "Useful Info" thread.

In terms of a great line up, there are now eleven different kits in the Tribute range!

I hope the "sticky" thread highlights the skills of Chris & Dan and their customers too.

So +1 to the "Well done to all" comment.

According to Total kit car magazine Chris and Dan might be adding a further car to their extensive lineout!

There were a couple of photos stuck to the back wall about the Dino.

Ask AndySharrock as he kept having to reattach the sticky tape when they fell down.

I am also fairly certain Chris and Dan will get bored and knock out a couple of new models before next show

I have checked on the JH Classics web site but their is no mention of the link with tribute. There is a mention of a short run of ten fully built kits which are fastback Dinos
. I assume this is the new kit and it is based on the mk3 MR2 which doesn't have the curved rear window hence the reason for change.

Aww crap, I've always wanted a Dino but my MX still isn't finished (no giggling at the back). Now I have to start a whole new series of negotiations with she who must be obeyed.
