    50th Anniversary roundels

    Just to let people know that these are now printed and will be at the LMC. The vinyl is removable and the inks are UV resistant. The roundels are also laminated to protect them. I will have the spec sheets of the material and glue for anyone who buys them. See you at the LMC and safe driving.

    Is this going to be a record ?

    I think this was on ebay originally with a classified ad price of £95K! I too think that's very steep for (in his own words) a kit car and a KVA at that. I was watching the auction and there definitely was a winning bid of £62K ish so why it's relisted is not clear, There is no mention of...

    MDAs used the original mold tool to create exact copies of the rear suspension upright (as seen fabricated in the photos above.

    Hi Martin, not a GTD but an MDA, it's successor, they are quite similar.
