Another Build Begins - Ian C's Pilgrim Sumo

Ian C updates us having just been down to the Pilgrim Factory to collect his kit:

"It should come as no surprise that I am now the proud possessor of a Pilgrim Sumo kit but it still comes as a shock to me when I realise it – I have scarcely stopped smiling since I collected the kit on Wednesday just outside Brighton.

Overall the journey was enjoyable, the only surprise being the poor economy of the Luton van (but given the aerodynamics of a breeze block it should not have been).

I can’t wait to get started but need to sort out a few basics such as where / how to store the body now that I (under advice and duress) have decided not to store it outside on the garage roof."

The donor car:

Lifting the body and chassis the easy way:

Gently does it:


Loading the rest:

Safely home:

Starting to unload:

Chassis unloaded:

Not so easy getting the body out:

Body unloaded:

Garage starting to fill up:

With a little imagination...........

So thats the last we'll be seeing of Ian for a while.......... plenty to be getting on with!!
