2am ebay fest.... you got away lightly, a friend of mine woke up the following morning and realised he had bought a tank!

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #5 - Doc Watson's car

Andrew,
Think of that first box of parts as the Starter.
The Main Course is waiting for you at work today.
Put that bib up close and tight around your chin...

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #5 - Doc Watson's car

...and a few more parts. Many thanks to Andy at GT40GoldParts.

I also have the water pipes that run through the chassis. Running out of parts to get so it must mean I need to build it now....

Hi Andy, it all looks amazing. May I ask what starting chassis you began with and if they are still for sale?
Thank you
John
