    Interesting ideas, shame I don't see a follow up. Maybe his idea of popping in a chrome tint lexan windscreen didn't pan out or the chassis was totally rotten.

    Interesting video but the owner didn't inspire me with any confidence in his ability to see it through, refering to the hydraulic rams as Hydraulic presses, and the Hydraulic pump as a compressor? As for a Lexan windscreen - I doubt that would be legal in the USA?

    And why is he concerned about the tyres being called "turbo" when the engine doesn't have a turbo?..Should I be taking the Turbovec wheels off my car?...

    He's right about the floorpans though - they do need replacing....

    I fear for the future of this Sterling. I'm guessing he'll either hack it to bit trying to make it cool, then give up and realize he's over his crusty shark head. OR, he'll finish it but "bling it up" to the point of beyond tacky.
    Thanks,

    Nic.

    Well, Lets hope he does,
    but I agree that the lack of follow-up from September does not bode well.

    I didn't think the Malaysian guys would get anywhere with their youtube 'build'
    (Part 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLt1gj1vI2k )
    But they achieved what they set out to do (all bling) with some nice touches as well though.

    Just trying to be optimistic ;-)
