Cheers Molleur, was going for a sedate subtle look, nothing too loud!

Looking really good, understated, nothing too radical! Anyone who doesn't like it doesn't understand therefore should be ignored.

Just fantastic and absolutely bonkers, I love it.

It's nice to see that the dash layout is just as crazy as the rest of the car.

Been trying to work out what the gauges mean - my best guess is that they're meant to give the passenger some indication of the time and distance to the next wormhole.

Once it's on the road please let us know if you're going to any shows as I'd love to come and see it.

Cheers MrT.
Thought it would be funny, 99% of people to just see gauges, but real 'car guys' to see them and just think WHAT!!

Air Density - Given to me by Dean Moon of Mooneyes
Brake - always remember getting my first car MOT'd & being puzzled
Vacuum- my dad had one in mk1 Tina & loved watching it .

Going to Volksfest in Bristol next Sunday, hopefully driven, but might have to be trailered.
Still rebuilding the engine!!

Love it, how do you get away without front mudguards? Wouldn't an interior mirror be useful? Just nitpicking because I'm jealous that I could never do anything that good.

Rules call for mudguards to be in place to catch rain & mud.
Not required, if its not raining!!!
I'm in the process for fabricating a removable pair.

Ordered a rearview with a suction cup, to stick-on inside the dome, still waiting for it to arrive.

Cheers Guys.
Not too bad, when you consider I started fabricating the body in late May last year.

Colin – I enjoy seeing your updates both here and on Rods ‘n’ Sods.

Good luck with the last few finishing touches.

Cheers, Paul.

PS
I did laugh at one of the videos where the guy at the bus stop did the full head turn.
