  1. This forum is full of great assets
  2. Graham, Looks really good. When will it be ready for SVA? Regards Mark
  3. Thanks Stuart, Do you think it will be worthwhile or just fit the 4 speed and change both engine and gearbox when upgrade, after all I might not go for Zetec and type 9 I might consider some thing else i.e. motorbike engine. Regards Mark
  4. Wow nice cars. Took me 10 years to convince the wife to buy a reasonably price kit car - no chance on the new Lotus unless I win the lottery. Fat chance of that I haven't even won a tenner for ages.

    Iva Pass

    Excellent a great acheivement another Zero on the Road. I bet you were/are grinning like a cheshire cat. Hard work over what's gong to be the first thing youe are going to change or modify? Well done have a beer and celebrate Regards Mark
  6. As some of you know my donor vehicle was a sierra import from South Africa. It was fitted with a crossflow engine and 4 speed box. Richard at GBS has suggested that I replace the box with a 5 speed type 9. This will make future engines changes easier and long distance drives more pleasent. Questions if I go ahead with the change: 1. Will it affect the registration process going for age related plate? 2. Will the bellhousing from the 4 speed fit the 5 speed? 3. What clutch set up would I need (part number etc)? 4. Anything else I need to do or general advice i.e change starter motor? Thank you. Regards Mark
  7. Paul, I like it but I'll wait for a few to be fitted first. Please let me know if you get one. Regards Mark
  8. Russell, I am building the Zero kit. I went down the donor vehicle route as part of the fun stripping, cleaning and painting. 10 years in the planning 4 weeks into the build, you won't find a better forum or guys for advice and free information. As already stated don't under estimate the hidden costs of buying odds and sods. I am going to be the odd one out because my donor came with a old crossflow so in the tradition of locosts that's what I am going to use - well at least for the IVA. Then the fun starts with all the modofications you can do...... Its great fun and a fantastic experience - take the plunge. Regards Mark PS haven't decide how to display my build photos yet!
  9. It's all good fun, don't be afraid to ask any questions somebody will know the answer. This is a great forum. Regards Mark
  10. Steve, I used stretch boots off ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2-x-SLIDE-A-BOOT-MEDIUM-STRETCHY-CV-KITS-FITTING-CONE-/170513137207?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item27b35ffe37 There's a thread somewhere and most owners that commented reccommended them they fit various sizes and come with fitting tools and steel securing bands. Worth a look. Regards Mark

    That's a really nice exhaust system so much better coming from the side panel rather than over the top. I wonder if it will work on the Zero? Regards Mark
  12. Ordering even more nuts and bolts again.

  13. I swaer by a prodcut called 'Showroomshine' it will do paint work, gelcoat, glass and black bumper trims all in one. It is even advertised that you can use it with out washing your car first. PS. call me old fashion I still wash the car first.

    Is It Me ?

    Maybe the dreaded political correctness is affecting the humour and I think most people are generally working harder and longer hours. When I was in the army the humour and p**s take was the backbone of all morale and friendship. I think this is a great forum and although not a heavy user I rely on the information and appreciate all your help in building my Zero. Keep the banter coming. Regards Mark
  15. Sharky, Measured stainless steel bonnet 96cm's I have not got my nose cone yet. Regards Mark
  16. Graham, Looking good you are well ahead of me. I have loads of build photos but have not decided if I am going to use a blog site, web site or photobucket. Keep posting the pictures. Regards Mark

    Is It Me ?

    Mower man I think you are right but I beleive its the knowledge and quality of answers that close the thread. Also more owners are meeting outside of this forum face to face or email in addition to this there's a lot of technical information and build photo's available on the net. Nick I agree with you on a few occasions I feel the dare I say it 'the cold shoulder' when I mention a GBS Zero and not a RHE 2B. Almost like how some people have made comments about a Westfield builder. I suppose its up to us as individuals to improve this after all we are all like minded people and dived into this passion of building or driving our kit cars. Wives nagging, always in the garage always skint saving up for the next modification. Regards to all owners. Mark
  18. Hi john, I would like a set please. Not done the PM thing yet I will try to send you my address. Kind regards Mark
  19. I am going to fit my seats directly to the lowered floor but include some large 40mm stainless steel washers to act as spreaders. Any Zero readers that have passed IVA as NIck said photos appreciated. Regards Mark

    Bar End Stoppers

    Thank you I was looking for some of these, isn't ebay great. Regards Mark
  21. The wife is not impressed I ventured into the garage (sneaked) on week day to measure the shaft. The extended shaft measures 79cm from end to end including UJ's measurement of extension excluding ends (i.e. bar length) 56cm. Hope this helps. Mark
  22. Looking good. Keep posting pictures they will help with the pending GBS Zero build manual. I am struggling for time. Mark
  23. Pop riveter broken after first build weekend

  24. No new build manual for the Zero - work in progress Richard is trying a few new things on the Zero. The fuel and brake line clips look really good. Mark
  25. Hi Doddy, I pick up my Zero last week and the nose cone was slightly damage (thinning on gel coat so they are making another one. Call Richard he might sell the old one rather than throw it out. Regards Mark
