    i get a bit of paper and start drawing ,til it looks roughly right .then look at similar cars to see whether there proprtions are similar to mine . basically i assume i am wrong , so check with others , it usually works out to be pretty close .

    basic idea principle ...is i make a car or bike design that has not been done before , so i can drive a unique vehicle , and know that as i drive it its a unique bit of test piloting i am doing , i find this very exciting .

    also the scrap metal i can get my hands on decides a lot of the detail.

    also the tools i have available , my latest project i built bodywise using solely a 115mm angle grinder a 150 a mig and 1963 lathe .vice , tin snips ,a bag of sand ,and a hammer.any heavy plate cutting out was drilled and ground .

    i often have little idea how to solve a problem until i go into the cave and offer up bits of metal from the scrap bin ,,and sometimes look back later on and think that was way better than i expected .

    a key help is to always realise whatever you do can be changed later , and not to worry about opinions .

    regards
