Vortx build diary

I've finally got round to putting some form of webby up for what will become my Vortx build diary.

http://rogb.locostsites.co.uk/

its a bit sparse on the content and not got anything of note in it yet.. but it will soon, hopefully.
its still a bit rough around the edges and needs some more work but better than just text.

if you want your site linked, give me a shout. you might find its already there if its been noticed by me and has been useful!

cheers!
ps any update on the build manual marc?

Nice website Dillinger!

Gonna be one to follow! Looks like a great original choice of colour for the body. Going to have a look at Marc's Vortx at Stoneleigh this weekend. Can't wait to see it in the flesh!

Seems a lot of builders are opting for the R1 route... I'm still a little unsure about my choice of the Mille after looking at the torque curves compared. I thought the Mille was supposed to be a 'pokey' engine! The R1 is a great choice on this premise. Plus it's more reliable (apparently...), cheaper to maintain, readily installed plus a big dollop of 25 bhp more! Anyway, don;t mind my babbling...

Are you using the fuel injected motor or the carbed?

Ta,

I think you'll find its a bad idea to have a 'costs' section mate


Cheers

Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a
car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes
and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.

I was going to have a costs section but I thought that ignorance is bliss

i know, it already feels like a terrible idea!
i'd rather not know myself... i already know its going to be 'far too much'!

suggested by the missus (of course), and ive no doubt i'll be 'gently' reminded of it whenever she wants a new porch/garden/holiday/car...

maybe i'll fiddle a few bits..


PS Chris, i'll more than likely be taking the carb route rather than injection!

photos should go on before the weekend and the rest of the manual, problem is the photos in the word doc are not all stored in the same place so go to go through 12500 pics to find them all
re stoneleigh we should be ok as i have my best recking crew on duty tomorrow and friday taking sierras in bits
gt40 now sold too

but this means i can now have the space to finish my other one
although time to do it may be a problem

p.s tidy looking garage fancy coming and painting our workshop
