Hi, I'm new to the club so thought I would make a quick post to say hello.
I'm based near Harrogate and currently impatiently awaiting the delivery of my new 420R kit. Fingers crossed it should be delivered around the end of May by which time I'll be on my 5th round of garage tidying, tool arranging and runs to the tip in preparation.
While I wait I'll be digging through all the various links to build blogs and info on the forums, plenty of interesting reading on there and seems like help and advice is very easy to come by should I get stuck with something along the way.
Welcome to the Club.
I'm sure all that preparation will prove worthwhile.

Please let me know if you would like any technical documents.
Thanks for the offer, I think I'm good for now, seems like there is plenty of content on this site to read for starters but I'll certainly get back to you if anything comes up that I need.
Welcome, hope all goes well with the build, had our 420R a year now they're a lot of fun
Welcome - just finished my 420R build so if there's anything that's a puzzle don't hesitate to reach out!

Don't forget to take a photo of the cleared and cleaned garage before the build starts, it will never look that pristine again

Ha ha, indeed, unless we ever move house again that's probably very true.
Hi Alastair, thanks for the kind offer, I may well take you up on that if i get stuck with anything.
Just having a look at your very nicely put together build blog (I do like that orange, came very close to ordering it but then had a last minute change of heart and went green) and wondering how the durastud floor tiles have worked out for you? Currently the garage has some old carpet which I was thinking of removing and then painting the floor, bot those tiles look like they might be a good solution.
Hi Steve, seems like you and me both - my 420R kit is due for delivery late May too and defo the wait is tortuous! Happy to compare notes and share the experience if we end up building at the same time!!
