Pretty pleased this afternoon when I got the locost out of the garage for the first time.
Checked a few suspension geo details, it all seems as I'd expected.
See the photos:
Now deny that you sat in it with arms outstretched gripping the imaginary wheel whilst wearing a smug grin
Its always a good feeling wheeling it out of the garage, you'll soon be driving it out!
Cheers, I certainly did!
I have big respect for people who manage to build their cars in tiny garages. Looks great pal.
Looking good, Rob could you tell what make of seat is that in the above photo.
Yes, it is manufactured by a company called DARK Engineering, if you search on here you will find a thread I did on it. DE is my company lol, I made the bucket seat, this is the prototype, the final pair will by carbon fibre.

rob thats awesome well done man, whats the cost up to this point ? approx looks good
Cost wise..... Not sure exactly. The donor car was cheap and made back the money in scraping it.... So a lot of good parts were free.
I'd guess with steel and wheels, probably around £800 so far. But I still have a lot to get and do, that cost will increase a lot. It won't end up being low cost. Lol.
I spent over a grand sorting the garage, tools.... It's a big investment but well worth it. Had fun today.
looking good can you let me know where you bought the rad please
The radiator is from a Honda Civic, 40% larger core. As I'm I using it in the front and my engine is in the rear, I should still have the same amount of water in the system, more actually. So I think it will work ok.
I got it from eBay.
