If you click the 'picture' icon (insert image - the two mountains and the sun) then you can add the link and it displays them as pictures; I'd like to see all of these, but I'm way too lazy to click each link I'm afraid... :(

edit - just seen how big they are; maybe not unless you re-size!

Love the car - N1 ticks all the boxes - but if it was mine I would be unhappy about overspray on my interior wiring loom. Doesn't take long to mask it off and it just looks tatty if you ever want to run a stripped out interior.

Overspray on the wiring.

Hi Folks

I am the owner of motormaxd and I feel I have to mention that I am not responsible for the painting of the N1 I only sort out the mechanical side of things, Dan the owner of the car did all the paintwork and underside himself and has made a good job of it despite you guys hammering his own efforts to keep this special race car in one piece for a long time in the future. I find people on this forum very quick to judge everyone esles efforts but don't see many other people even bothering to do any of the things that Dan and myself do to preserve and make the cars better in the survival stakes.
It seems to me if you are not spending an extorsionate amount of money on your cars people just don't show interest!

cheers

Martyn

Martyn I wasn't being nasty, but the post does look like an advert (as your name is on anything shiny) for your work and I would have expected a neater job of the paint. The engine bay is :smokin:

You have cleared up that you didnt do the paint work. But you must see where I am coming from for the sake of a couple of minutes work with some masking tape the job would have looked so much better and the subframe/arms would have looked better without the black wafted at it.

As for everyone having huge bugets have a read of my build thread. We certainly didnt / dont have a huge budget, but have invested lots of time and effort to acheive the best result. Again a race car only not a show car.

Have look and your welcome to point out things I could have done better so I can improve them or do them better next time.

Our car has a hard gloss mirror finish on the subframes and arms which was achieved for a small cost (just over £100 for blasting and powder coating or all arms and subframe) but considerable time and effort removing everything nothing on it is mega money (i would guess the whole car cost maybe what some would spend on an engine and box) just done as neatly as we can achieve.

lets clear things up

apologies to all who thought martyn (motormaxd) reference the painting as i did it myself and was just in the intent to preserve the car. i understand and take peoples views onboard there are things that i could have done better reference the wiring looms but the fact that it is having seats put back it was never intended to be looked at anyway.
also reference it being a n1 this one does have abs which i was told could have been an after feature it is 100% real and if you want to check the vin number out yourself i will forward it to you as i have been confirmed by abbeymotorsport and andy middlehurst at st helens

thanks for all your good and bad comments. dan.
