when will we see the car in the flesh so to speak?

Not sure really, but I am back to regularly tinkering with it, 15 mins here, 45 mins there, so might have it driving around within a couple months (just in time for the road salting 😂)

Will be keen to have a closer look at yours

Aye it's tricky cus there's no point trying to do it mathematically given the slight differences in the frame shape and panels etc, so I basically drew around the old ones where possible (most had disintegrated), and transferred my reckoning and measurements to the board too, and took it slow, shaving off a little here/there as needed. Also discovered that 6mm ply can be cut with a Stanley knife which is useful for the little recesses and when taking off a millimetre along a whole edge etc.

Bit of a drive today... 

Halifax to John O'Groats via Carter Bar, Edinburgh Airport, Skiach Services. No prizes for guessing what inspired the route. Tomorrow another day of driving down to Stirling. 

Your a few weeks early😆

I'm afraid I don't know what this years route will be... not taking part and no prior knowledge... but I suspect a significant overlap between the last 2.5 days driving and what is going to happen on the RBRR

Clearly planning to be the very first at every control point 😃

Not EVERY control point...

Or very very late?

We drove the "top bit" of the 2014 RBRR route, Carter Bar, Edinburgh Airport, Skiach Services, John O'Groats, Conon Bridge, Morrison's Garage Stirling, Tebay services and then turned for home down the A65.
