Kaye if this resto on the body turns out like the Yankee f1,it's going to be superb. Is that a one off chassis? I've seen that chassis before but forgot the story behind it?

Emilio: The chassis is a Quickdraw Grand National, I think it's from 1992. They say on the internet that something like 50 examples of the chassis were produced. The chassis is very well built, I like all of the aluminum detail, particularly when it's polished.

Kaye, there were actually only around 25 produced. They made enough parts to build 50 though.

Front left fender restoration in progress showing re-assembled ABS plastic ' fender jigsaw puzzle pieces', fused to ABS plastic backing plates and strips (soldering iron heat source). I'm not skilled at this, I'm making it up as I go along.

I'm going to make a front spoiler for the body out of ABS plastic. I've been messing around a little bit this past weekend trying out some ideas.
