Hi all. I'm looking into building a kit car based round the mk1 mx5 running gear. My choices are either an Exocet or GBS Zero. Both have there perks in my eyes but unfortunately can only have 1 at the minute My only gripe ( this is purely because I'm a coachbuilder by trade and this was the first thing that came to my head ) is the joining of aluminium to the steel. Has anyone experienced galvanic corrosion with joining the 2 dissimilar metals ? I know powder coating is not a sufficient barrier between the 2 metals, it does last a fair few years but does eventually break down the metal over time. Not looking to scare anyone here either BTW.
GBS Zero – For Sale List After recent hard financial worries the car is going to have to be sold and unfortunately the best money following Femsters sale seems to be in pieces, which is a real shame but here goes. I am based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire M1 J38, M62 J24/25, but will be in Warwick on 20/21 October and London the Tuesday before so can meet up, but funds must be cleared through Paypal before I load. Please PM if you want any parts, they will be taken off the list as funds are recieved, the rest will go on Ebay in 10 days time, first offer to the guys on here. I will post the smaller parts and will agree a cost with the buyers. Narrow body chassis complete with wishbones, panels, loom, brake lines, master cylinder and lighting is also for sale, but not until all the other parts have gone.
