This blog is to cover out progress through the stages of the strip down and rebuild of a robin hood kit car.
Started the blog a bit late as a fair bit of the stripdown has already been done, this is to follow our progress of the build.

Interesting Day

Other bitsPosted by Neal Manley Sat, May 07, 2011 22:39:15
Was a nice day today so decided to get the kids down to the garage and get some more done to the car and let the kids play with he remote control cars. Continued work on the body mainly to the nose cone as this needs alot of work.

Chris came down later in the day to work on the dash Mk4 and completed the installation of the switches warning lights and digital dash display.


Pics will follow soon


whilst on one of our breaks Chris decided to take a VX220 for a test drive as Paul @PSR Automotive has one for sale


where we are located on a private estate there is a reasonably straight clear road at the back which Chris felt would be a good place to test the car to his astonishment whilst flooring the accelerator to the floor a mechanic from another garage jumps out into the road to which Chris took evasive action to avoid hitting him.

so when he comes back to the garage to drop the car back this guy shows up to have a pop and rant about the fact that its not a race track and he was breaking the law and could have killed someone OMG!! take a pill mate it an empty industrial estate.
