  1. Fantastic machine technology will replace us all eventually. Mark
  2. Should be there in Kit. Note to self: build faster! Mark
  3. Iain, I'll have them sent you a pm. Thank you. Regards Mark
  4. Spencer, My numble opinion; 1. As above weather is important unless you have a warehouse. 2. Plenty of notice, secure the dates early check whats on in the area don't clash with another show or if near a sports venue stay away. 3. Toilets sound simple but some local events have none, share or not enough. 4. Food reasonably priced - i approach a local truck stop burger a few years back in my area and they were glad for the business. 5. Advertise nataionally, local and surrounding counties, including caravan/camping sites, cadet forces, schools, local St Johns ambulance (first aid cover tick in the box)etc. 6. Goodies - car stickers or pens with car show name and year, free entry into prize draw (local firm sponsorship) or award best club/best car etc. 7. Cars - sounds daft but get some confirmed/garanteed attendees. 8. Well sign posted on the day. 9. Marshalls/guides - to help and provide assistance. 10. Joint venture - have it the same day as fairground, market, car booty etc in the next field one location two events more interest to a wider audience. Quick attempt there are many more I'm sure. Let me know were and I'll try to get some work in the area. Best of luck regards Mark
  5. Dan, If it meets your needs then so what. When we were selecting a replacement car they were on the list but in the end we decided on the Fiat multipla. I bet I get the pi55ed taken out of me, but I have to say what a fantastic it meets our needs 6 seats (2 adults, 2 kids ours and 1 or 2 foster kids) and plenty of boot space for a twin buggy, nappy bag, rations, coats, tool box etc.... Now you know why I need a kit car with two seats! Mark
  6. Hopefully getting a set of bleck wheels and tyres from wife, brothers and sisters. Fingers crossed. Jess, I occasionally work in Oldbury once recovered from op would a appreciate a good look at your car. Regards Mark

    Kit Spares

    I like this forum becuase we all have our own opinion and are free to state what we want. I am suppotive of GBS every query has been answered, every item bought has been delivered (eventually) and all build problems resolved. But as a quality and business improvment manager who has worked for many top brands in my opinion they should of waited for the site to be complete, parts, pitures and stock levels. What is the purpose of a business, normally the answer is to make profit, but I would say to produce/sell what the customer needs/wants (very simple terms there's a lot more). If they can not meet this then yes they will fail. If people become disheartened with a website which is below par then they will loose faith and go somewhere else it is easier win new customers rather than try to persuade old customer to come back. I have very high customer satisfaction criteria if a company lets me down once OK forgivable let me down twice then I move to another company (Just left Sky due to poor performance). Unless they have a unique item which is not available anywhere else but then you pay the price. Give the site a chance, you can not make everyone happy and we all have our own expectations. Quality is the answer, now what's the question? Regards Mark
  12. Nick, Looks good I assume you don't like to see screw heads (same here), I like the mesh idea but what adhesive did you use to glue the cycle wings on? Cheers Mark
  13. I can not count for everybody but I have been extremely busy at work and with an operation on Monday I will not be in the garage for 6 weeks. It has been very quiet is it the Christmas build up - funds assigned to other things? If I have any spare time between physio, MSc and work I might try to build a web site or upload photos into photobucket to show the serious lack of progress. Regards Mark
  14. I bet that was a sigh of relief, looking good. Mark
  15. Operation on Monday no garage time for 6-12 weeks - not fair
