Hi all

I thought it was about time I did a build update, so here's a few pics of the beast :-

I still have the interior to do and the wiring is about 90% complete. I'm going to crank it up in the next few days, so with a bit luck I will be able to hear that sweet music again.

Cheers

Hi Andi

It looks better from a distance, there are flaws with it but I'll sort those out after I've got it on the road.

Hi Howard,

My god what a difference since the last time I saw it. Coming together nicely! :cool:

Check your e-Mail, I sent you some images and a bit of text on the interior panels last night.

Cheers...

Very nice:cool:

Don't worry - you will see far more "flaws" than anyone else. Just call them "character":D

Thanks Dave, and thanks for allowing me to "borrow" your colours.

And vipers are certainly characters.:twisted:

That looks sweet mate.
Doing an excellet job there.

Better just check you can set your indicators are at the right height for SVA/IVA though.

The car looks brilliant Howard. Its really good to see other Vipers coming together so well.
Yourself and Iain are really setting some standard!

Good luck with the start up! Does that mean "quick spin around the block"? :-)
Have you got a finish date target?

Hi Dean

I can't get off my estate without going over speed bumps, if you think the front is low the back is even lower (underslung exhausts). I'm going to have to jack up the suspension to get to the SVA test centre anyway.

Hi Declan

I'm just going to start the engine, however if the car happens to slide down the drive into the road, then I guess I might have to drive it back up again, and if I didn't spot it until it had gone down the road a ways then I suppose I'd have to drive it a bit further to get back home.

As for the finish date I've just got this year fixed in my mind. Anytime before the end of the year will be a bonus.

It's mainly the interior I've got to do, but as you know that's not a 5 minute job in the Vipers, and I need to go over the whole car when it's finished to try and find the dodgy bits that the SVA guy will find if I don't.

Cheers

I reckon if I hit the speed bumps fast enough I won't have to worry about the clearance....

Not after the first one anyway as it will already of removed the pipes :rolleyes: :D ;)

Mine also has underslungs but the lowest points are the suspension mounts and jacking points.
If I want to take it to work one day then I will encounter 10 speed humps just to get in the carpark!





But I do have a cunning plan8)

Hi Steamy m8
I suppose this plan will involve another PLC and hours of code development.:confused:

...or is it as simple as, take the bus!:D

Hi Ian

LOL

Obviously, as I am sure you now realise...










Option 1

Hi Dean
Is this involving some sort of mechanical arm that grabs onto a lamp post and swings you over the speed hump, then lowers you to the ground on the other side. The arm being controlled by GPS, radar and 'intelligent learning', needing more computers than IBM can make in a complete month?????
This would then go along with opposite of the KISS premice that you dearly love to choose :P.
Hope all is going well with everyones Viper builds.
Cheers
Kevin

HMMMMMM
Now you have me thinking8)


Well lets say microsnot will have nothing to do with it.
So there shouldn't be so many crashes!!!!!
