    Um wow thank you very much for that....... You must be a glutton for punishment if you have read all that I just thought it was the ramblings of an old stupid idiot (as you can tell I don't rate myself much over ok standard )so I'm shocked/flattered when others like my work
    I'm not sure how much I said before but I suffer from depression and this is how I have tried to cope by getting stuck in ( it's not perfect by any means) there have been times when I have just walked in and then back out of the garage and not done anything and there are deferntly things I would do different /better now but this is how I can look back and see how bad I was

    Bully – Well, I am another fan of your work, as your car is a great build.

    Especially when you consider this is what you started with.

    I’m no expert on depression, but I did start my own build to help with stress at work.

    Unfortunately, I then ended up adding the stress of building a car to everything else.

    I think it is only natural to look back and think you could have done things better.
    ( I know my skills at the end of my build were miles better than at the start. )

    I also think it is easy to compare your work unfavourably with other builders with stunning skills.

    But what you should be doing is comparing yourself to those that are not building their own car.

    As whilst the people in the UK with more skills than you may be in the thousands.

    The people with less skills than you, are definitely in the tens of millions.

    So, try to stay positive if you can.

    I found the following saying helpful when I was stuggling…

    How do you eat an elephant?

    One bite at a time.


    In the end, I figured that even if I only completed one small job, it was still one less to do.

    Good luck, Paul.

    Well thank you very much for that very much appreciated, that car turned into






    which is now sat in the garage awaiting this one too be finnish the rat started as a doner for it but I decided in my worldly wisdom that I could make another car
    And looked like this


    As for the depression I'm on the right road and have a really great lady supporting/helping me but you never feel like you are good enough (but as I say I'm getting there)
    And I haven't stopped working on the car just been doing things that I haven't finished or found out if it works yet and the usual thing of ordering my brake seal's of eBay three-days from Torquay ....... turned into three weeks from Lithuania so as you do started different things still haven't fitted the seal's
    But big
    I would just like to say that I'm not after sympathy but I do hope that it will help others to see that you can work through it as it has helped me

    D'Oh!

    I'd forgotten you had two builds on the go.

    Which makes your achievements even more impressive.

    Take care, Paul.
