TOPBUZZ Project Car Page 7
1998 was a bit of a disappointment, as I wanted to get the project under way. I'm still persevering with ASW, as I know that they're aware that I'm interested in getting the car done. They have sent me a reply E-mail from my FAX that I sent them about mid-January confirming that they've got the details and would be back soon. Another reason why they've been taking so long is that they are reconstructing the company, and to a new location. This explains why the answer machine has been on all the time. I've again sent them another E-mail explaining my project car. I'm still waiting.Feburary 1999...
I've eventually had an answer from ASW, they can't do my project car, not a single bit. But they could supply the parts. This news has coursed some concern as I now have to look elsewhere. They did mention to try Novatech, in which I phoned them up. After giving all the details on what I wanted, they could do the work. But they would call back, to discuss prices. At the same time I had an E-mail from someone recomending Regal Autosport in Southampton. I gave them an E-mail saying what I wanted, and they too could do my project car.March 1999...
Novatech never answered back, but that wasn't a problem as Regal could do the work anyway. We arranged a time to meet and to discuss the project further and have the bodyshop have a look at the car first, to see if they could do all the bodywork on it. After several trips to Regal and a lot of talking, it was clear that the project was going to cost more than I thought. It was going to be over my buget to get MOST of the work done, including fitting decent security and paying for the insurance (they only wanted an extra £50 if it was modified!). I still need some more money for the ICE system. Things were looking bad.
