Yes mate, the welding was a bit crappy in the beginning, until my 10 yr old mig gave up the ghost, now doing much better with newer model.

just wanted to say that I am very impressed with the builds that I have seen on here, and most are too daunting for me, I am just building mine to the extreme DVD spec.
I looked at dads360 before I found this forum, and although it is going to be the dogs danglies, I am of the mindset that I got a good deal on the kit, the donor for £250!, and aim to be driving it by this time next year, although I will still be tweaking with the interior for a very long time I think!
I'm not a mechanic by trade (security engineer http://), so this is pushing my limited skills to their utmost.
I really appreciate the welcome I have received from you guys and the help, and hope I can be a grizzled veteran helping newbies in the future.

Cheers
Alex360

Hi Alex.. congrats on your kit and good luck with the build. Will be following this build with great interest like I have done with JD's and Mickey's. I've just built a DNA 430 and the Extreme are harder to do so hats off to you. I'm in Essex as well if you ever fancy a look at my car... send me a PM if you're up for it sometime...

Cheers
Paul

Cannot believe my luck!!!!!!
Working for a customer on Wednesday, went with him to site, site not ready, so I said I will only charge half a day....
On way back I tell him about my 360 project, to which he says "I used to have the real one, think I still have an exhaust for it somewhere"
Needless to say I didn't charge him for the day!

Hey Alex think you need to put the loto on with your luck lol,the genuine exhaust will make a massive difference to the sound I no mine does ,they soon take shape when you get the panels lined up I see you got the challenge front bumper with your kit they look so much better ,cheers jd
