    Default Kit Arrival Day!

    Thought I would share what it looks like when a container of Caterham Sevens and parts arrives at our shop. Hidden in those crates are two 310S's and a 420S, along with a full stock of parts to put on our shelves for Caterham owners. Of course, Seattle lived up to its reputation today with a torrential downpour during the 3-hour container offload.

    Cheers,
    -Bruce

    Are all three cars staying in the area? If you are doing any of the builds, we won't object to in-progress photos along the way.

    Having been to Bruce's shop, I can say that it is a really, really nice facility, and the quality of his work is fantastic. I spent some time in December going over a car he was building and it was the highest quality I've seen to date. Outstanding attention to detail.

    Another vote from me for Bruce's attention to detail builds and the exceptional workshop. I attended the Christmas party in December and it is a very well designed facility that is immaculate. Its more pristine and better designed than the actual Caterham factory in the UK. Great group of local owners and customers that are very happy with their Beachman Racing purchases - I enjoyed chatting with them. However, I have a strong suspicion it is a place that is quite damaging to one's wallet if you are not mindful.

    Its a really nice location too. Wish my travels took me to PNW more often.

    John - thanks for the kind words. In motorsport, the details can and do separate first-place from the first loser. Both the triumphant and painful experiences in racing over the years have created a rigorous approach difficult to turn off.

    Two of the three kits are definitely staying in the PNW, and are relatively local to you (Kirkland; Woodinville). Both are self-builds. The third kit is the Ballistic Orange 310S advertised in the for-sale sub-forum, and I can now say with confidence that it is here :-)

    Glad you made it out for the party! And I can say with confidence that the owner group out here was impressed that you made the trip, and demonstrated your 8th-degree black-belt in everything Caterham :-)

    Sorry that I missed the chance to talk with you at Bruce's party. It's the social event of the season. Hopefully you'll find an excuse to come back out during the good weather.

    Still in the massive grin stage. Damn bugs!

    I may have spoken with the Woodinvile owner at the party. He wasn't aware of this forum but had planned to check it out, although not sure he remembered the URL. It would be good to see him start a build thread as that kind of content is not only entertaining for those of us who have taken the plunge into se7en ownership, but can help push those on the fence over the edge. The more people we can corrupt into lightness, the better

    You got the right guy John. I'll start that thread.
