  1. Matt,

    Ali is easier to work with stainless steel is a pain in the behind. I agree with Jess's comments above. However I love the look of stainless and not to worried about the power to weight ratio's etc so from day one it was always going to be stainless for me.

  2. After my good comments earlier I am now in the other camp 'poor service'. Called twice, emailed once as a reminder for bits that was missing from the original kit. Guess what they did not bring them to Stafford transportation problems.

    Now do I go on Sunday or risk the mail system?

    Regards

  3. I was disappoited with the lack of trade stands although GBS looks bigger and I really like the new dash (have to get one). Once I dropped off some goodies for the raffle and catched up with some members we left.

     

    Hopefully next time the car will be ready and I'll enjoy the social life a bit better.

  4. You will always get what you need eventually but like the other have mentioned you have to remind them, phone, email or both. I picked my Zero up with a few bits missing but they pointed it out and afetr a few reminders they should be there for collection during the Stafford show.

    They are approachable and try to help, they just don't have robust processes in place.Also one part they stated it was not up to their standards and would not let me have it, that's good customer service.

  5. Dan,

    Once I finish my car I was thinking of asking the kit bag making advertised somewhere on the forum to make a tri-angle storage bag to go onto the boot behind roll cage for camping gear. Alternatively I do like some of the tear drop caravans.

    See you at the show on Saturday.

    Regards

  6. Keith,

    Same answers as above don't under estimate the fun, pain and satisfaction of building your own Zero to you spec's. Every single one is different that's the unique selling point of this forum and car.

     

    No competition to me Zero! OK I wanted a 2B but timing wasn't right.

    Best of luck.

  7. Graham,

    In daily life I give generously to a lot of charities £1 here and £1 there including £10 to Air ambulance during last few shows, then as a member of the British legion I donate £100 a year (ex-forces) and we have a business charity of the year which I support with many events. So my concious is clear, but in defence of others we are chased, encourage or advertised every day of our lives by charities and I assume some have priorities/commitments to others.

     

    Then on a personal note my mum has been diagnosed with MS so another charity I contribute to on a regular basis to a point where I can not always afford parts for my kit. I agree it is a poor show but understandable - please look from both sides.

     

    Regards

    PS. My business and I have contributed to Andi's raffle in Stafford

  8. Same as Nick.

    But... be warned my brother in law has just been fined because he could not prove the vehicle was destroyed i.e. Destruction certificate issue by a reputable End of life vehicle business and not informing DVLA.

  9. I had to cut my bolts to fit don't make the same mistake as me wrecking the nyloc (too much heat and technically should only be used once)use a dummy nut first to protect the nyloc and clean the thread when cutting.

  10. Dave,

    Welcome I am building a yellow zero at present although work has been extremely busy and its been a while since I ventured into the garage.

     

    If you join you can access the map to see members in your area tea and biscuits is normally enough to bribe/get help with any problems.

     

    Or all questions answered here.Best of luck.

    Regards

    Mark

  11. Well John and Nick,

    You motivated me to get back into the garage and attempt the back panel unfortunately only had time to mark, drill and file edges on top strip before she who must be obeyed wanted a stay gate fitted, then dinner. Well it will have to wait until next weekend.

    Regards

    Mark
