By "DB", do you mean Dave Brookes?

If so, there are plenty of people here who will put their hand up and tell you how happy they have been with the whole experience.
Not sure who there is in your area that has first hand knowledge though.
I'm sure someone will be along shortly.....:mrgreen:

Hi Peter,

I have a Dax Cobra from Dave Brookes and cannot recommend him highly enough.

He is a top bloke building top cars.

No, I think I may have deleted a couple of posts in this thread by accident when deleting my own.

Erm, fat finger trouble. :D

No worries Rob. Fat finger sufferer here too.

Maybe ALL smileys are gay? Now that would cause a few problems for some folks.

Hi Peter, I enquired about the possibility of a factory built Dax 427 at DJ Sportscars in early 2006, my cousin had built a SR V8 and now a Dax and it would have been rude to ask him to build another.
DJ's directed me to Dave Brookes and so I took a train up to Stoke and Dave's completed cars were a testament to his talents and experience, also he was courteous and patient with moi (a non-engineer who spoke with a London accent.)
If you want something a bit different, Dave will somehow interpret whats required, and suggest/design/fabricate, a rare talent.
With such a wealth of experience he knows the Dax kit very well, he also loves cars and is a champion of free speech and the freedom of the road.
I knew he'd build me a lovely Dax but was STUNNED when the car materialised, still love it three years later.
I didn't think it was too expensive either, furthermore your guarantee is something Dave will honour,this doesn't mean you would have to get it to Stoke if you had a problem, Dave will explain this to you.
You will not regret having a DB Dax built, go for it!

Thread has gone very quiet.....Wonder if he commissioned a DB?

I think it's Dave generating some free advertising before christmas :), I'm not sure it'll work, people out there probably have the money to buy others a Dax replica as a gift but where are they going to get a sock big enough to fit it in ?

Hi Peter,

All Joking aside, Dave does very nice work. You're welcome to come and view my car, Dave hand a hand in the finish and I can't fault the work in anyway, the quality is excellent. Drop me a PM, I'm not that far up the M11 from you.

Cheers

Andy
