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.

I had a bit of spare time yesterday afternoon so I started making a handbrake lever. It is all from bits lying around the around the garage. The handle is an from an old file, lever from an old childs bicyle and the shaft is conveyor track barrier. Plus other tut found under the bench amongst more tut.

BRILLIANT Jim  Like the ratchet setup, is it going to be operational?.
