I've finally got my finger out and started blogging my build.

It's a Ford-based, narrow body with ATR suspension and throttle bodies.

Please let me know if you have any feedback.

Regards

Ben

I saw your car being prepped at the factory in January when I collected my kit! I took some pictures of the brake line and wiring routing to use as reference. I also decided to spray paint the footwell and front tunnel end panels matt black after seeing this done on your car! Had the spray can out last night as it happens doing just that!!!

Is there any chance you could share those pictures Nick, they might be very useful?

No problem, I didn't know what was useful at the time, and although its a Ford narrow body the brake & wiring routing was of particular interest to see! I took some shots of the Mazda demonstrator too I can send you if you're interested? Perhaps email you directly rather than clogging up the forum?!

Hi Nick

I'm not sure how we would get email addresses to each other as I can't work out how to add it privately to my profile, not sure if the forum has that ability. Having the photos on here though would, I'm sure, be of help to other people in the future.

I've also worked out how to subscribe to your Photobucket build album via RSS, so keep adding to that!

That's a bit worrying as all my pics are set to private.........................

Hello all

An update from me, I've been favouring building my Zero over keeping my blog up to date and I managed to fire up the engine for the first time yesterday. There is come evidence here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/njsdjwho73l8czf/GBS%20Zero%20First%20Start.mp4?dl=0 What you cannot see very well is the enourmous smile on my face, it was very pleasing to say the least!

I will plan on back dating a few blog entries when I get time and upload my build photos.

Thanks go to those of you who have taken the time to read my inputs and those of you who have offered advice based on your own experiences.

See you on the streets in a few weeks... Laugh

Ben
