That is one of the most exquisite builds I’ve ever seen. Completely original looking. A perfect “10”

Default It worked!

First outing at the 25th Nationals for #98.
Went better than expected so very happy with the outcome.









Cheers to all that followed the build.

Yes very well done Brett and good to meet you finally.

The car does look great and is a credit to your talents and perseverance.

Trust you didn't scare number two daughter too much on that last track passenger drive, there seemed to be quite a few going hard in that session, including yourself - lol

I had a ball but the Nationals timing does potentially conflict with the start of our sailing season, so hopefully till next year.

Cheers

Steve

Thanks Steve,
Teish was more worried about getting hit by bugs and **** and I actually forgot she was there for a while till I saw her slide under the dash during a braking session
She loved it and didn't expect to go that fast so all good.
Your car looked great and was good on you to make the effort to get there.
Catch up next time.

Cheers
Brett

Brett,

The pictures are great and it really looks good on the track. Also the fact that you had no big problems really speaks well of the quality of your build. Congratulations and keep posting pictures and videos as I enjoy them as much as the rest.

Ron

Congratulations Brett!

Your build is spot on and really captures the look of CSX2431, very well done indeed. Now you have the fun of enjoying the car as intended on the track as Ken and Carroll would no doubt approve. Enjoy the drive!
