Day 2 – Build Manual, CD and order confirmation arrive

Day 2 – Build Manual, CD and order confirmation arrive

Today I had a nice surprise in the post. My Tornado build manual arrived together with the pictures CD and my order confirmation. It was a bit of a worrying/exciting feeling when I opened the envelope and saw my order confirmation form as it dawned on me that I am actually going to build one of these amazing cars from scratch. The form also confirms that the chassis and initial parts will be ready for collection by the end of December, that’s one hell of a big Christmas present this year.

In addition to the confirmation form was the excellent build manual that Andy at Tornado has developed over the years and from now on will be my bible that will take me through the build process step by step.  I’ve tried to resist the temptation to get stuck into the manual as I’ve got some work I need to finish off over the next few days but it should make some interesting reading. As I previously stated I will be following the manual to the letter and Andy has kindly offered to assist me with any queries I have with the manual during the build process.

Andy, I might have to add you to my friends and family plan for my phone ;).
