    Andi - it is a $50 added cost to the regular yearly fee, in California anyway. Other options than black or white available but cost more and supports various causes, fire fighters, environment, etc. richy66 - have never been to Portmeirion but someplace I've always wanted to visit. The Prisoner show had a big impression on me during my formative years. Is it still open to the public? Had to wait till my senior years to get the car though. In reality rear fog lights are unknown here. Even though we get a fair amount of fog here in northern California. People here only know of front fog lights. But you make a good point. The GBS chassis loom places the fog light on the right side and not looking for more work to do will probably just leave it alone. Will probably never remember to use it anyway, and other drivers would just think I'm riding my brakes anyway. nelmo - no IVA or MOT for kit cars but in California anyway you do need to go through a myriad of inspections, brake & light, CHP (california highway patrol), smog referee (if you want to be exempt from smog inspections, unique to kit cars in california), and the infernal beast of the DMV (department of motor vehicles), etc. I kept a humorous diary of sorts regarding the headaches I had getting the car registered. Will send it to anyone privately that is interested but it does need editing. Every state has different laws and requirements for car registration. I only have experienced California which I think is one of the worst. So the same plate could be issues by another state if they offer that option. Here is what my other kit car has;

    Very pleased with picking this up today. Not "KAR120C" (already taken) but happy nonetheless.

    My first try at wrap. Sides and rear panel are easy once you remove everything attached. Front suspension and steering was a pain to remove but doable. Will let you know how the bonnet goes once I make a blister to cover the VVT assembly sticking through right now. If I can do it anyone can, with a bit of patience.

    It's a wrap. And much to my pleasure and surprise fender (wings) GRP (fiberglass) color (colour) is a superb match. So those parts did not need wrapping. Good thing we both speak English :)

    corner weight scales

    Corners weight is always last. Remember to include weights in driver seat minimally and passenger if frequently used.

    I had problems with this too. I used 'find my present location', which was way off, then was able to push the pointer around to get it to the proper place using update now. Hope this helps but the software fix would be better. Marlin

    Brake And Clutch Cylinders

    Hi, Hopefully attached are 3 spread sheets I've gathered during my 2 car builds. No experience with them and they are a bit anal but internet information is "you get what you pay for". If someone needs these to be forwarded direct feel free to contact me. Hope they are some help. Marlin oops; Error You aren't permitted to upload this kind of file I guess no Excel spreadsheets allowed? If anyone would like them let me know.
