    Almost there !!

    Hi Guys

    Just thought I'd provide an update on the status of my AK build to those of you who I've met at various garage meets over the years.

    The car is currently at the AK factory for final checks prior to going for IVA, which was expected to be late April, early May. But, due to the current Corona virus situation, who knows when that'll now be.

    As you can see from the attached pictures, there's a few things left to do - side screens, sun visors, mirrors and a few badges. AK found that the front braking wasn't very good, so I've brought forward my planned upgrade for larger disks and 6 pot callipers. Other than that, all is ready.

    So, Corona virus and IVA willing, I hope to see some of you either at a garage meet, or better still, on the road later this year.

    Russell,

    In these troubled times it is good to see a bit of good news, the car is looking really good - and a big change from when we came down for your garage meet 3 years ago this June!

    Look forward to another trip out later this year when, hopefully, things are back to normal (or whatever will pass for normal) once this is over!

    Take care,
    Ian

    Tommy,

    What are the niggles? - its not another drive shaft is it, I told you those welds wouldn't last!!! Hope you are in a bigger garage now?

    Thought you might both appreciate the attached as a memory of a good day out!

    Take care,
    Ian

    You probably know this already but don't fit the sun visors or wind wings prior to IVA.
    If AK are doing it for you they'll know of course.
