Progress

We're making good progress, all the aluminium bodywork is fitted along with most of the powertrain. The open engine bay makes assembly far easier than on the old Ibex with no fear of damaging paintwork. We're trying to get as much done as possible before Peterborough show on the 11th and 12th of September. Still needs a polish though.

Painted it Black

Perhaps the worst thing you can do with a vehicle with flat panels is paint it black. It is very difficult to get a truly flat panel and black will highlight any imperfections. Even harder to get several panels to sit flat next to each other.

It's a good test for Proto No. 2 then, fresh from the paint shop in gleaming, er, ...black. We just couldn't resist.
