It's all starting to come together now smile.png

Have you re-tiled your floor Leigh? I thought it used to have a 'chequered' finish?

It is starting to get real now as LB as asking for lots of cash laugh.png

 

Floor used to be black plastic interlocking tiles. They were OK but couldn't really handle to OH's car coming n an out every day. They started to shift and they also expanded like made in the hot weather causing lifting etc.

 

Got it tiled in the end - should have done it from the start. I've told the OH she should clean up the mess as it's caused by her car. You can imagine what response I got.......

Alex, no, because I bought them before he'd finished his place. When I told him he said I should have waited as he had a full pallet of them left over!

Off to the powder coaters in Nottingham tomorrow morning. They have the chassis and I need to choose a colour. Craig at LB (and Dan Webster as well as it happens) say black is not a great colour as you don't get enough definition and contrast against the engine. He's suggedted an anthracite colour which they have decided to offer as an option.

 

Dunno about the tiles Kurt. I'm gaking the S2 over on Tues next week so will ask if you like.

Chassis in grey zinc powder primer. Have chosen the dark anthracite colour. Will be done on Monday and LB will then take it back to their place.
