From the original 6 (ish) I've done 7... and have (at least) 8 more to do! :shock:


Sounds about the norm to me!

New variable needed in my formula, to take into account how many other kit cars turn up to have work done, when you want to get on with your own... Even if you are supposed to be working for a living.

What you making?

Once I am on the road I have a Carbon 'itch' that needs to be scratched! Got a couple of ideas of things I want to make and having a couple of reasonably large ovens at work that go to about 135°C I will be trying low temp pre-preg :D
