Thank you for the kind comments fellas, it is appreciated.
I have not posted for a while as i've been awaiting arrival of the tyres.
So today they turned up and I couldn't resist chucking them on!
So with a bit of help....




And finally chucked in the van ready to fit...I have gone with my gut and spec'd 205 and 255's to keep the balance of the car. The Contact 3's did feel especially sticky when fitting them, so hope i've made a good choice.

Now the only problem is the Baron is currently residing with Turbo whilst we get the heat exchangers sorted out.


The CAD drawing has been sent over to the laser cutters so with a little luck and a following wind we might see them back next week.
Almost there!
bye

So at last I managed to get a little time to put the wheels on the Baron.
Not the best pic's but then they are from my phone. Turbo has let me have him back for Christmas so's to be able to attend the Midlands meet Christmas Do Grin







So all washed and tucked away next to the nice walm radiator.
Merry Christmas to one and all.

Thank you all guys. I really appreciate the flattering comments and the Merry Christmases Thumb

Bar a couple of bits left to do, The Red Baron is finished.
I guess there will be some other projects in the future, money permitting but the basic ground work is done. I've enjoyed this journey and the friends I have made along the way. The things I have learned will be put to good use on Project Blue Book next year.

So it feels great to finish The Baron for Christmas Razz
Happy Christmas to all and wishing everyone a peaceful and healthy 2016.

Chief, saw you trundling through Wooten Wawen around mid day today. The car looked lovely with the ride height and general stance spot on. Not normally a fan of gold wheels but the clean lines add to a very impressive package. I hope to see it up close some time. thumbsup worship

There is no doubt that as good as these threads are, there is nothing better than seeing the car out on the road (and track), being used.

If you are still down here on Tuesday why not get yourself along to the Midlands Meet.

Coast, thank you Thumb
John, thanks for noticing The Red Baron! Although not hard to miss Grin
I received three texts yesterday saying they saw me and Mrs Chief trundling along. All of you seemed to mention the slow speed Question I guess most are used to me going far quicker.......!
As our PeterS says we are all meeting up on the 29th and the Baron will be there. Would be great to see you if you haven't returned home.... Thumb

Thanks everyone for the positive comments, they really do me a lot to me.

I have never liked those Azev wheels, but the whole set up on yours looks bloody epic and like the rest of the troops following the journey has been a blast all we need now are some other boys to get working now that Pete,Paul Rob etc are now just about finished.

looking forward to the 914 I passed on one with 30000miles for a couple of grand last year nooo

all the best for the new year

Gaz

Just down and back for us yesterday. Christmas meals on wheels for relative in Gt Alne. Good day and great to leave the rain behind, around Doncaster.

As for speed, in was in the 30 zone and I think Warwickshire must have the most speed aware drivers in the country, as well as the most 50 mph limits on A roads. Provides more time to look at the car though.

Arh John, we're a well behaved bunch down here my friend. Sorry we won't get to meet this time around. Rain check maybe?

Gaz,
Glad you approve me ol pal. Maybe getting that new model has softened you?

Mike,
Thanks pal, you could never offend Gill she has a real soft spot were your concerned Smile
