Slot Car Stuff
|While you're waiting for your car to arrive, pick up some three ring
binders and load them with the printed pages of various build sites.
Read and reread them to learn from other builders.
I have listed some of the sites I found extremely helpful below.
Phil's Super Seven Site
Duratec Caterham Se7en
Darren's Caterham R300 Build Pages
Academy Racer Build Site
There are many more great sites out there. Follow links in the
signature lines of people posting on BlatChat and read as much as
you can to prep for your build.
|On each site you'll find notes about garage preparation. Here are
some photo's of getting the space ready to do my build. We will be
building the car at Ken's. He's a great friend and fellow driving
instructor. I helped him build the barn a few years back. He is as
excited as me about building the Seven there maybe more!! Enjoy...
|I've gotten questions on where to get the floor tiles. These are from
"Sam's Club" which is a warehouse club here in the US. You can get
everything from food to garage supplies all under on roof there. The
tiles are foam about 1/2 inch thick and make a nice surface to work
on. I paid about $18 per pack of 8.
You can see something very similar to these tiles at
The jack stands, work tables, and assorted shop rags also came from
