Build Diaries - Phases 1 to 4 of the cars life

I've kept a diary of each stage of the cars build as its evolved over time.

Phase 1 - The Original Build

I built a Chesil 356 Speedster from a kit, starting summer 2002 and completing the build September 2003. This original build is detailed in Building the car here

Phase 2 - Outlaw-ification

I then entered a 2nd build phase in December 2004, which added a RAT 2270cc type IV engine and took the car in an "outlaw" styling direction, which was completed in June 2005. This "Outlawification" stage is detailed here

Phase 3 - Conversion to Fuel Injection

In 2007 I converted from Carburettors to Fuel Injection and Direct Fire Ignition. See "Fuel Injection" here

Phase 4 - Back to the 60's

Out with the modern but not the hidden technology - that is all fine and good. However, the modern CD headunit and speakers had to go and other simplifications are also to be made. See "Back to the 60´s" here
