I bet, had a go in a track prepped Tiger 6 in February with no screen and nearly lost a contact lens due to wind and eye watering, let alone frozen hands, wished I'd worn my motorcycle lid and gloves! I guess no screen for the IVA so you didn't need to a have to meet all the additional regs?
It sold for £260 in the end, not as much as I had hoped for considering it was all brand new and cost me over 7 times as much but it was build it or sell it, and without a garage a build was not a prospect anymore. Admit I was initially attracted by the low price for a new quick car originally but by the time the cost of the IVA, and not just the £450 but all the stuff you need to meet it, started to look out of my budget anyway. Went to a seemingly nice lad who sounded really keen to build it and knew a fair bit about kit cars, so if it helps someone else to fulfill a dream, all is well in the world, I even bunged him the build book for free, after all I just got an 1850 for free so just passing it on!
