Had a visit to newark kit car show in the zero, its first run only 24 hours after getting the number plates fron the dvla. We over heated the engine on the way up to newark and had to stop to refill the coolant and let it all cool down. The problem is that not enought air is getting to the rad to keep it cool at moterway speeds. Every time baxter went over 65 mph the engine temp went up above 116 deg c, so we had to take it easy and stick to 60 mph all the way there.

A cowl to duck air into the rad is our next job.
This is our car next to the tent in the camping ground at newark and also on the robin hood owners club stand. (we won 1st place for best attended club)

Here we are with our MAC certificate from vosa which means we can now get zoom zoom a reg.

This is zoom zoom on its way to the SVA testing station

These are the mods we have done to pass SVA.
We have fitted a panel made of carbon fiber to cover the rear of the car so the tester cannot see or touch the sharp edges inside the boot.
Also we covered the exhaust with edge trim and just hope it stays on as this gets very hot.

Iggy fitted the digidash to the car and also the steering wheel, gear lever and all the trim.

Gasket also fitted the pedals as he's small and very bendy and can get into the pedal box easily.

We have had some late nights to get the car ready for its sva test.

All the wireing was done by spencer and we now have head lights, indicators,hazards etc.

I fitted the rad, rad fan and the nose cone to the car and together we fitted the bonnet with the cut-out for the exhaust.

Hi just to bring you all upto date with progress so far....

We had a rush to finish the car as the test we have to take to register the car for use on the road is changing, and we wanted to test under the ''old rules'' as this is the standard we have built the car to.

So we have fitted the rear wings to the car and also fitted the rear lamps.

The seats and seat belts were also fitted alond with the dash and all the wiring.
The front nose and front wings are also on with the front lights.

This is our car at the sva centre for its test!!

This is the bracket I made to mount the alternator onto.

The space for the alternator is very small so we used a smaller unit from a forklift truck engine and made up a bracket to fit it. We used the top bracket from the engine and it lined up with the left hand bolt hole for the camshaft cover.

The belt is 800mm long and the alternator has just enough adjustment to tension the belt tight.

Spencer thinks its the bees elbows

We have fitted the rear panel now after Spencer and I spent 5 hours making it.
It took a very long time to get it correct, but the end result is worth it. As Iggy said to me as we were finishing another late night in the workshop '' If it worth doing its worth doing well''
Well if he had turned up in time he could have helped us!! Cheeky bear!!

After we finished the brakes we started to plumb in the fuel lines.

As you can see the pump is now in and the fuel lines are connected to it.

The tank is now bonded in and also bolted down with 2 large straps

Spencer managed to get some glue on his paws when bonding the fuel tank and the spanner stuck to him

Spencer took these pictures of Iggy and myself rebuilding the rear brakes. As you can see we fitted new wheel cylinders to the back plates and also new shoes and drums.
Iggy painted the drums blue to match the car bodywork!
It was hard work but we got it done.

We have been busy building and now we have the help of iggy things are proceeding at a faster pace.

Spencer and iggy are fitting the dash board into place. this is just a test fit as it needs to be adjusted after the wirning loom is fitted.

This is my cousin Iggy from Germany who has come over to help us build zoom zoom.

His day job is as an actor and he can currently be seen in eastenders playing the part of Dotty's teddy bear.

As he said '' Its a demanding role and only a bear of substance could play this part''

Well all I want him to do is put the brakes together!!

Here we all are at the christmas party, and another year is gone.

Hope we get it finished soon!!

Here is Spencer racing a formula renault car at thruxton race circuit.
We had a day at Thruxton race circuit and we got to drive lots of supercars like the Ferrari and lambo shown here.
Spencer also drove the formula Renault race car.

Here we are just working out where and how to connect the radiator up.

As you can see Spencer is fitting the battery tray before we make and fit the scuttle.

And I am telling him what to do.
