When I started this blog, I was writing for a couple of reasons:
- to record for my benefit the process and learning I’m going through in building a car.
- to hopefully help other builders coming after me, not by sharing my knowledge (which is small) but by showing that someone without lots of technical skill can successfully build a car.
There has been a most unexpected side-effect of the blog, and that is the jokingly named Caterham Therapy Group. This is a small group of current or recent builders who have got in touch to share experiences and knowledge as we move through the process. We’re lucky to have a experienced motor technician in the team, plus a second-time builder to share their knowledge, but we also have other builders going through the same problems, and slightly different ones, at around the same time.
A big shout out to Martin, Jason, Nick, Simon, Robin, Paul and David for all the help, support, shoulders to cry on and solid, great advice that everyone has provided. I know it has only made an already great experience even better – thanks chaps!
