Well done sorting your insurance ! I would have thought that the companies in the US that insure hotrods and such like would have been your best bet.
Over here in the UK there are several specialist insurers to choose from. Most offer generous discounts if ;
You built it yourself
You are in a club
It is a second vehicle
You want limited mileage eg 3000 miles
You don't have recent claims or license convictions
Agreed value in the event of a total write off is easily available too.
Fully comprehensive cover will typically cost around £200 - £500 a year for the average owner.

For high temperature adhesive I'd have a look at this stuff..........

I've not used this particular type but I use Alpha Adhesive in the UK and it's very good.
Of course, we don't have the temperatures you do.

Impressive stuff and fabulous scenery.

My favourite quote:

"If there's a hard way to do it, I'll find it."

I could've said that myself!

Looking forward to seeing it in its final colour, so keep up the good work

Jokes aside, glad to see this wasn’t too serious.

Especially as one build I was following went from this:



To this.



Via this:



Sorry, it has been ages since I replied to your build.

I liked the build summary video and the fact it was a family effort at times.

I also liked the take your car to work clip, as that confirms my experience of car building:
- You notice all the things that you don’t like about the car, because you have built it.
- Everyone else just sees a car you have built yourself and says “Wow!”.

I’ll watch the range testing one when I get the chance, as the other replies suggest it is great.

Take care and good luck with the rest of the bodywork/paint.

Cheers, Paul.

That looks like a scary fire! Thanks for the comment!
