Thanks guys. I do feel as decrepit as the car looks. Lol. The paint was dead easy. Black satin base lightly sprayed and purposely patchy. I next used a cheap airbrush with about a 0.5 nozzle to spray some cocktail of turquoise  acrylic I mixed up. Again patchy I sprayed the centre of the panels and finally I am still going over it with some burnt umber in small areas at a time to give the rust colour. I will seal it in when it looks like it has almost completely rotted away.

Hi Adrian, I fixed it a couple of days after the event and tested it out at a local classic car show. Which turned out to be good fun driving it round the show field. It is a good venue that is available for hire. I am looking forward to the next stretton meet and chucking bits of my kart at anyone trying to overtake. In the meantime I am racing at santapod this weekend and will take the kart for some fun. I  might take it down the strip.

Jim if you do get a run down the strip, make sure to record it. I am still awaiting details of the 'Corona Speed Challenge' recently highlighted in the 'CycleKart World Championships'. It is an event for individuals, so you would be a worthy entrant.  :)
Personally I don't consider CycleKarts to be suited to all- out speed events..... But do what you gotta do!!

Glad it's sorted Jim.
I have sorted the Renault and I'm just waiting for the diff bits. If they dont come in time then its one wheel drive (and brakes????)
I have increased the drive ration from 10:1 up to 7.8:1 so start throwing pal, I'm coming by!

Hiya Adrian, glad you've got your gorgeous Renault sorted. I am looking forward to us battling it out at Stretton next week. I will be using my Dick Dastardly book of dirty tricks to keep you from over taking.

I had a great weekend at santapod with the kart and the dragster to play with.

It is Graham. I am too lazy to walk around the pits.
