    Default Birkin ss3xs - New Build

    Hello All,

    I've been lurking for the last 7 months or so as I was building my Birkin XS. It is now complete (needs some fine tuning) and I thought I'd share a few photos.

    I'd also like to know if anyone has dimensions of the Caterham sill protectors. I'm not a fan of my side panels already and am looking for alternatives. The passeneger side doesn't fit all that well and has developed a small crack, that is bound to get larger.

    Thanks for looking Gents.

    Brad

    Great looking build.....
    I am also building an ss3xs in Houston with the absolutely fantastic support of Tom Carlin remotely from Eagle, Co. Where are you located?
    Also, I really like the color of yours - do you have the color code?

    Thank you. It was a fun and sometimes painful process.

    I got 2 convex mirrors and I'm not using a rear view. Takes a bit of getting used to but the coverage is good.

    First "racing stripe" I have seen that runs thru the passenger compartment! I think the side louvers on the engine bay are a new Birkin feature? The chrome exhaust sure beats the trusty rusty iron so many se7ens feature. Beautiful car!

    Beautiful job. I'm building one in LA. How did you get the hood to fit so well?
