Cheers Shaun I might just take you up on that offer whenever your free? Ill be building it in my girlfriends single garage in hamilton so only up the road from you,which is gonna be a tight squeeze I think lol
That's maybe a bit to expense for me airforce especially being first build.Looks like exocet is gonna win here! Was it yourself Iv seen the vid of driving down Cumbernauld road then?
Thanks guys,I'm up in Glasgow deano,not sure how many folk are nearby with builds.Not really got the chance to go down to stoneleigh so if anyone was close by it would be great to get a look close up.I'm not in any rush to get build done so would give myself to this time next year to get it on the road all going well.
I'm in Motherwell currently building a Exocet, it's not running or near completion but you can get an appreciation of what it looks like and what is involved. You're welcome to pop around and have a look.
Thanks again Shaun for showing me around your build this avo. Defo got me wanting to get in on the act now
Yeah, odd little things like silicone tubes, clips, rivets, rivnuts, and bolts will cost hundreds you likely haven't planned for. Gear and brake cables, connectors, clips will probably be €400. The initial outlay for the big bits will be painful, but little things can be bought without too much as you go along.
I thought to get the kit without front brakes, pedal box etc at first; if you're buying a Rocket, forget £4k, you'll be handing over a minimum of £6,000 to RTR on day 1.
Rocket build in Dublin using an ST170 donor. Driven by an ME221 ecu, Jenvey 45s on DanST manifold, DanST backplate and 90mm trumpets. Vroom vroom.
If it helps as a guide; I'm trying to build an Exocet on a tight Yorkshireman's budget and I've spent £5.3k to date in total. Of that £4.5k is directly attributable to the car (incl. kit), £600 on tools (so far - with being a novice)and the rest on a van/fuel and consumables. Of the amount on the car £220 has been on a complete brakes refurb (discs/pads/service kits/bits)'cos the brakes on mine were in a desperately poor state.
There are some truly brilliant builds going on and it's very easy to get drawn in to the world of powder coating everything and buying all shiny new bits!
