"Gulf" LHD Super 7

I started this project in October of 2016. It's been fun.
While it is another Caterham Super 7, it is as unique in its own right as all the others I've built.
It was a Tamiya factory built that I fully disassembled (breaking some parts along the way) and rebuilt and reengineered using an uncountable amount of scratch-built and machined parts.
It was right hand drive; it is now left hand drive. The removable roof is fabricated from brass.
I played around with different configurations of how to stow the stuff in the back before settling on the way it is in the second to last photo.
For all the details of how it was built, here's a link to the WIP thread within this forum:

All buttoned up; everything installed:






Top off, street legal and ready for cruising:





Spare off, ready to race once the "trunk" is emptied:








Bottom side:

Re: "Gulf" LHD Super 7

Another masterpiece finished!
It was so much fun to watch it "grow"!

I wonder how long it will take until you start your next Super 7...
