    Default My New Caterham 310S

    I've been out of the Seven scene after having to sell my Birkin several years back, but I'm excited to be getting back in the game. Placed an order for a 2019 Caterham 310S, in BRG w/white nose band, lowered floors, leather seats, and a tonneau cover. Was interested in the BRG Caterham roller that was on Ebay a while back, but ended up speaking with Jon, Ross, and Josh at Rocky Mountain Caterham and decided to order a new kit and build it myself. Didn't want to miss out on that part of the experience! Exciting times ahead!!

    Congratulations Bruce. You are so overdue to do this.

    What production slot timing did you get? What options have you selected?

    Congrats!

    Why just a band and not a band/stripe down the middle?

    Thanks Kenny, I've been VERY interested following your build. I'm expecting delivery around the middle/late August. The only options I went for were the 310 engine package, lowered floors, leather seats, and tonneau cover. Still recovering from my divorce so couldn't go too crazy! After spending almost 4-5 years of my spare time fixing/modifying my Birkin, this build should actually be a lot quicker. I've been reading the build manual but I'm sure I'll have questions so thanks. Would love to see your car someday!

    Thanks Mike! The build is supposed to start in June with delivery in the middle/end of August. Couldn't go crazy so the only options are what I originally listed.

    Thanks Vovchandr! I would have done the stripe too but I have an all yellow Caterham nose at home and want to be able to swap out the nose cone for a different look. If I had the stripe I'd have to swap out the bonnet and scuttle too. Was thinking of getting another spare nose cone painted BRG with an orange band to replicate the BRM colors from the sixties. Would look like this:
