Hi All
Been meaning to post a quick hello for a while but with a hectic work life and Zero build in progress I have just got round to it.
Never used a forum before but loving the subjects and advice here so far.
Based in Oxfordshire and with a standard Zero (Mazda based) - I am optimistically thinking I am about 40% through my build and enjoying every second of it.
Just got to work out how to post pictures 😉
Cheers
Mark

Welcome Mark,
Easiest way to post photos is to open a photobucket, gmail photo, or your choice account. Place photos there, then take a copy of the IMG link from the site and paste it into your forum thread. You sometimes have to fiddle with the picture placement in the thread. But if you're enjoying your build you're enjoying fiddling.
Hope this helps.
Marlin

Welcome along mark. How long have you been building?

I'd love to know how far I was through but absolutely no idea!

Hi Mark, welcome to the forum finally, you've done well to get to 40% complete without asking a question! I'm about 98% complete on my Mazda build, just trying to get the engine to start then it can be bolted together for the IVA. I'm not too far to the south of you I imagine, living in Andover but working in Newbury. Hopefully I can get the car ready for some commuting in time for the usual September 2 week "indian summer"!!!!!!

Thanks for the tips Marlin - will give it a go

Hi Mitch - I started in January this year, with just a few evenings and 1 day each weekend. Didn't get any time during March due to work commitments so 6 months in so far. The 40% is an optimistic estimate I think - it's realistically only about 15% complete 🙁
Looking at your blog, it looks a little further along than mine - looking good and same colour as mine 🙂

On behalf of GBS, welcome.

If you have had a look around you may have noted I remove some info from time to time, if you think a topic is of use and info is missing shout up, if it is relevant to your build I can re post.
