Hello one and all..
We're Kevan & Nicola.
From Coalville in Leicestershire.
We really enjoyed our first kitcar.
A (Sylva Striker) with 1700 Kent engine.
Loved every time we went out in it.
Even when it broke down...LOL

After a problem with the engine.
WE then sold it on to help fund our first Rally car.
Then upgraded to second car. (Which is now for sale).

After Nicola's RTA. Injuring her neck & Back.
And then not able to compete again.
We've now decided to sell up.

We picked our Ford Zetec Zero GT Starter kit from the Factory on Saturday 4th February.
And set up in our garage/workshop.

Welcome to you both

I am just a few weeks in to my build, and have found the forum and factory very helpful already,
Months of planning and dreaming. I imagined myself as a sort of Caractacus Potts character busy in the garage making a magical car while the family wait impatiently in the house. Sadly, not to be, but it is coming on.

Have fun

Hi Stu,
Thanks for the message.
I've added a couple of pics onto the GBS. Facebook & Enthusiast pages..
Hoping to create a build blog. So we can upload vids/pics.
How have you found doing that?
Not going to do a video blog.
I prefer to be behind the camera,not infront of it...lol
Will keep checking your build blog...
WE've only the starter package.
No rear diff.
Brake lines.
ect.

Hope all goes well.
Kev/Nic.

Hi Nelmo,
Yes we will be both working on the project...
We don't argue that much at the moment.
But I'm sure in the near future while building the car we will....
LOL
