Alright, things are getting real now! Got the call yesterday from Peter......I am the next slabside build. The chassis is already built so time for the body. Getting excited now. Figure a couple months to build the body and then probably another 6 months at Big B for fenders and paint.

Heck yeah, got the call. Brandon at big B is picking up my car next week for paint. Most likely going to be a 5-6 month process but looking good for getting the car summer next year. This is awesome.

Interesting, I was under the impression that the slabside would only fit the Jaguar rear? What made you decide to go with the ERS?

Hi Jason,
So.... 2 months in at Brandon's, now?
Any updates and pictures on the Comp fender extensions? We are all ears/eyes (well, I am anyway)

Cheers,
Glen

Tremelune- the ERA rear has a little bit of a wider track to that is why it is not used in the slabsides, the wheels will stick out beyond the body. Since I am having custom fender flares done (early comp flares) it will not be an issue.

xb-60- no new info as of yet. Peter told me I was the last car Brandon was going to pick up because he has ran out of room. Big B has a ton of cars in the shop so I dont expect any progress for at least another 2-3 months. Brandon was awesome to talk to, he was excited as well to do something a little out of the norm.

Yes, a 289 Comp is out of the norm. I'm not aware of any replicas, however some surely must exist.
Good luck with the build

Cheers!
Glen

838 went to Big B around 10/15. No movement yet.

I expect the call any day to give him his down payment and get the color samples.

Wait a minute. Your car sits for three months before they turn their attention to it? They can't staff up a bit to help meet the demand?

It is interesting times.

First deposit sent 3/31/20. For a painted car that is almost a roller, I expect to get it in my hands about 6/1/22.

Big B says he will have the car 5-6 months. Then Peter needs it for another 30-60 days for some assembly.

Some have quoted longer lead times. It would have been well under 2 years for an unpainted kit.

xb-60- thanks, I am excited to get the car and have something thats a little different.

As far a Big B goes, I am sure his crew is working overtime to get the cars out the door and I am more than willing to wait for quality work. I have had some paint work done locally and it has been a disaster. The fact that Peter vouches for him is good enough for me. All of use have waited 2 years or more to get their dream car so a few more months will not hurt.

It took me 7 years to get my car completed properly. Good shops are worth the wait and it sounds like you found a good one!! Can't wait to see those comp flares.

Could be different now but, when Brandon painted my car 8 years ago, he was a one-man operation.
