Stephen Harbourne and I are having a 'both blokes building a kit car in Ireland' meeting 12/02/18 in my garage.
Agenda TBD. Likely to include some discussion of the lack of an IVA in Ireland and the rush to send our cars to the UK before you give on having a recognised European build standard in March '19.
Reciprocal trip to his swish garage in his new gaff in Garristown to be arranged soon thereafter
It all started innocently enough, showing him around my freezing, scruffy garage, he brought me lovely exhaust shielding and everything. But by the end of the day I'd been peer-pressured into hacking off my gearbox mount with a grinder.. At least he put me onto a fab shop that'd sell and bend me the steel to make a new one.
Return trip due in the next few weeks, to return the favour, I think I'll talk him into starting again with stainless steel and TIG-welding pretty colours into the chassis rather than the drab black paint he's gone with :-)
