Check the tyre pressures.
Hope to see it finished by Sunday
Like the look of this bit:
I bet you're like a kid on christmas day !
PLEASE remember to keep us all updated.

+1 - REALLY looking forward to this one
My car now has a steering rack. This is easy. I'll be done by teatime*.
*not. The garage is full of boxes. There is so much stuff to do!
TDK - yes! Only more excited
More pics please!
Leave it unpainted. Save weight
Look forward to the build thread
This IS the build thread, you tit.
I recommend you check your thread titles as often as you check your tyre pressures.
oh wow, how exciting .......
What? MrMe checking his tyre pressures? I don't think he's up to that
He'd have to park it with all the valves at the top of the wheel for a start...
Stop changing the subject Mr Thread Administrator.
Sh*t, sorry, I thought this was the Shark Attack thread..? :confused:
No, it's most definitely the Caterham Build thread and not the soon to be posted Caterham Build thread for blind people.
I only hope the build thread, wherever it is, is going to include tips on checking tyre pressures for dummies
Off-side front suspension is done, see piccy.
So far, I'm impressed with Caterham. They owned up to not having given me a diff (supply issues...) and I think I'm short one of the exhaust guards, but overall the structure of the kit is very good. Each build area has a box and/or a bag, and a "fixings pack". The fixings packs contain all the nuts, bolts, washers etc that you need for that bit plus a card with a picture & description. It means you can put the card on the floor, ID all the bolts and lay them out, then pick out bolt (5) when the manual says to.
Amazingly, only one bolt has been an utter bitch so far. Although I will have to do another like it on the other side. Talking of which, see you all later....
At this rate it'll be on the road tomorrow.
Isn't that upside down?
So, are we going to open a book on how many "spare" bits there are left afterwards?
Seriously - sounds like the best lego set ever. Clear instructions and all the bits present, unlike IKEA, for example. The further this thread goes along the more I'm going to lust after doing the same.
Is there any market in building these for other people? I doubt it
I'm enjoying this already.
p.s. Wasn't this meant to be for those cold dark nights when there was not a lot else to do?
