Magnificent!
Who would be so picky as to point out the uneven ride height?!

Re: the Steinard MK3 takes shape

Looks pretty sweat. The wheels look good, Can you give me the details for the guys that made them so I can price a set of shells. I'll be in Melbourne next month going to the Singapore GP pity I can't stop in Brizzy on the way home for a gander.
Cheers mate.

so as she sits now its just rear axles to fit when I get them then paint and dyno and she's done and dusted. any way here's a few pics I took before she went back into the shed. hope you like them.
John the car looks bloody superb. My M1 with cast iron chev was 920kg without the body on so you have done a fabulous job building it to a low weight - I'm sure it will be a weapon! Cheers, Andrew

Re: the Steinard MK3 takes shape

I must admit considering the tube sizes I used for the chassis I didn't expect that result at all, I thought 750-800 but i'll take it that's for sure.
did some math this morning and its taken approx. 1400 hrs to build, cost wise you don't want to know. but there was no way I was going to not do the Marque justice, so its had pretty much the best of everything.
all I need now is some one to come along and wave a big cheque at me lol.
cheers John

Re: the Steinard MK3 takes shape

Looks great John. I'm very envious, wish I had more time, mine seems to be taking forever. When are you thinking of taking her out for a shake down ?
Keep the pictures coming when you do.
Udo.
