Hey guys,

Just wanted to check on roughly how many people are thinking of entering, so I can make some arrangements.

So if you have a car on the go, or are planning on building one, please register acknowledgement here. Add you car(s) and which class you aim on entering.

For those who have no idea what I'm talking about see here: Small Car Proxy Post

Cheers guys,

Made my start on the KdF-Wagen tonight, getting the resin body trimmed and polished ready for primer.

Hmmm, there's some subtlety to this resin lark isn't there? I pride myself on having a pretty sharp knife but still needed to give it some welly every now and again. The result? I had bits of bumper pinging off left, right and centre - there's now a putty overrider on the back as the other one disappeared under the sink someplace.

The temptation was strong just to give up and buy a Pink Kar body to modify, but I'm through the other side - though McLaren, if you could avoid crashing on any right-handers I'd be very grateful! Either that or I'll have a pre-war Baja coming home in a box!
My frickin rear bumper's come apart again. Other than that all's fine with the KdF. The camper, on the other hand...
I'm out... totally gutted but my first attempt at resin has been an unmitigated disaster. Painting and gluing together, fettling weight and magnets - all of that I can do, but this whittling of resin has for the moment got me beat.

I would try and find something else to enter with but I've spent all my dosh for the next while.
