    I've got about 40 hours in so far. Having a great time doing it. Only wish it was warmer. I've got a torpedo heater but the constant din of that thing running makes you crazy after a while! LOL

    Very nice! I don't remember my exhaust ever looking so shiny. The assembly of my Yellow Cat took 80 hours, you look way closer to finished than that. Great work! Tom

    Thanks Tom! Been a nice challenge. I've mostly been working on it on weekends. The diff, was a lot easier than I thought. I read some horror stories of the fight some have had, but mine went real well.
    Next up I'll build the dedion and rear brakes.

    Derek from Caterham has been very helpful with the electrical connections that I had questions about. I sent him some pics and he sent some back with comments. The hand brake cable, routing points were another issue that he resolved for me. I'll get them taken care of when I go to the deDion.

    Unfortunately, I'm going to have little time over the next couple weekends to work on it due to some family matters that need done. But I'll try to do more during the week days to keep the pace up.

    The headers and exhaust are beautiful! Nice that the Duratec dumps the exhaust out on the passenger side (in the states) and not the driver's side (Unlike the Zetec and X-Flow). It will be quieter/cooler as a result for you as the driver.

    I got some more done on the Seven over the past week. Sorry for the pic quality. My phone camera lens is screwed up!

    Looks like front and rear wings, the stone guards and you are just about done! Have you started it yet?

    Are your headers coated?
