    Black Alloys

    Hi Martin, I have fitted these couldn't make my mind up silver or black, paranoid that I'm going to sctratch them. From wheel based alloys came with rubber, wheel nuts, locking wheel nut set for about £420, besides the kit the largest spend for the build so far. Mark
  7. Missing all the good weather hopefully car will be ready for next summer......

  8. Decision made I ordered the 7 set chrome bezels, white dials with red pointers today. Went for the electronic speedo after hearing the potential issues with cable routing. Should be here in 2 weeks.

  10. This site is really a build manual and it brings like minded people together, with a proper and decent manual there might not be so many members. Also one of the best parts of kit cars is the different shapes, colours, mods, bodges, brackets, tweaks, different parts that do the job etc. they are all different, follow a biuld manual and the majority will look like a production car.

    Cv Help

    Sorry to hear your news. I always update my CV annually - you never know, printed on high quality off-white paper to stand out in the crowd. I have been involve in a lot of recruiting in the past 4-5 years and the most common format I see and the layout for mine is. 1. Name (larger font than the rest of the document. 2. Address 3. Contact details (tel home, mobile and email) 4. Profile - 1/4 page - Its all about you, character, skills, experience and knowledge. 5. Education and training - list in date order (can be differcult to support without certificates) don't worry how small the course was it demonstrates the ability to learn and apply yourself. 6. Employment history - In your case one company write in short concise paragraphs for each role you have been employed stating the year you started each role. Use statements like promoted, developed into, exceeded target/objectives, achievements etc. Basically sell yourself, you are better then the next candidate. 7. Interest and hobbies - Explain that you have a life and commitments outside of work, it tells the interviwer that you are not lazing and enjoy occupying your time (not a couch potato). 8. Additional information - i.e. Married with 2 kids, driving license category, foster carer etc Make sure you support the information in the CV, and don't laugh practice interviews with family (the inlaws are great for this(devils advocate)) I still attend 2-3 interviews a year to find out if I am employable and to gain experience. Then you will be able to answer any questions about your CV also remember the interviewers names, if yourespond to a question knowing thier name i.e 'yes Simon' it works a treat. Hope this helps Regards Mark
