Have you noticed I don't seem to be able to get my website on my profile or something?

Here's mine anyway:

www.5exi.741.com

It's already been pointed out in a thread, but sorry if anyone gets more than their fair share of pop ups!

You never know, I might even get chance to update it a little more, as I have done more work on the car, honest.

Default web site / news group

Back in march I created this news group so people could share photo's and data with intersted buiders or anybody with an interest. it is not ment to distract from site but supplement it.

I closed it down. there was no interest from people wanting to use it. the idea behind it was that builders could all add to it. share ideas, pictures. handy files. and good links. Builders could build up a photo data base.and it would have been ideal for those files that could held for everyone. Ie wiring diagrams tracking and setup. IT would be easy to set up again if there was interest

Default 5EXi Project Website

Ok people,

As promised I have put together a really basic web site

http://www.marlinturbo.dsl.pipex.com/

The contact area doesn't work, but you'll find some electrical pages as supplied by another forum member...

I'll try and update from time to time.

If people have other pics, info etc that they want added then let me know.

HTH

Good sites guys. Mine looks a bit lame compared. It's rough.

What a fantastic colour. Is this a painted finish or Gel coat? If the latter is this standard orange?

Cheers

Mike

Looks like the standard orange gelcoat to me, same as what's sitting in my garage. Great minds think alike Trev...

Hi all, first post on here, though I've been lurking for a bit :-) Reassured to see the amount of good advice changing hands. I picked up my kit this Summer and am stuck into it now - building with the K20A engine.

I've been putting together a build diarythat you can find here
http://5exir.blogspot.com/.
(note - I think you may need to refresh the page in your browser to pick up any edits - not sure why)

I'll try to keep it up to date as time goes by. No doubt be in touch with you soon for some advice!

Cheers,
Richard
