Yeh, it’s only an exhaust pipe.  I can go down the road to the local exhaust place and get one of those. 

Err, no.  It doesn’t work like that.  It’s a one off.  That means somebody has to design it.  Not a design team, someONE has to do it.  Then it has to be made.  Not factory made.  It’s a ONE off.  Then some people make disparaging remarks about it “only being a replica”. They just don’t understand.

Keep up the outstanding work.  It’s a credit to the kit car ( not a good name I know) community.
Not all problems can be solved with gaffer tape.  For those there is WD40.
Not even gaffer tape can fix stupid, but it can mask the sound.

If you can’t buy it or steal it you have to make it.

Yes you hit the nail on the head there. Quadruple your estimated timescales and you might be somewhere close to the time. Exhaust is away being ceramic coated and due back this week as we have had to wait for the colour chosen to be shipped in from the states, collected the intercooler pipes which are coated in silver ceramic and we started to build everything up on the removable rear frame. Barry also collected the new driveshafts from the engineers which have taken nearly 6 weeks to make. But this is the same lead time for anyone, first they have to be made then sent away within a big batch to be hardened elsewhere and then back to the engineers for quality control before we could finally get our hands on them. I’m sure there are cheaper and quicker options but with 300bhp+ and serious torque to the wheels we don’t want any issues. We decided to have them two pack painted in gloss black. They cannot be powder coated due to the heat process. The shafts are all made up read to fit this week. 8) All the intercooler silicone pipe clips due this week and in W4 stainless.

Repainted a few sections of the engine bay where we removed the old exhaust hangers. Then fitted the exhaust that’s been ceramic coated, then rear frame refitted and exhaust tips fitted. Just doing this took 12 hours :o everything takes time. Brakes and front wide track setup being finished/fitted this week.

I’m sorry mark, but I’m going to have to be a bit negative here on this post...

After calling in for only an hour last night to see how you have been getting on, I’m afraid to say these pictures don’t do the project any justice at all...!

I was absolutely blown away last night at what I saw and how much had been done since the last time I had been down.. but these pictures just don’t show the level of excellence of work done..

But well done mate, it’s a credit to all the planning and hard work in the planning.. it’s certainly all coming together.. but I think a Video may be better???

Epic piece of engineering

Well, I'm into the 11th year of the project, could it be ready for Stoneleigh 2020, doubt it. The longest DNA build ever
