Hi everyone

today we had the first rough mock up of the Lykamobile seat arrive, a couple of modifications need doing, and the actual armrest have been made in less pieces than the mock up, but I think looking at the pictures below you will all agree that it looks very good.

I think Craig has been busy with getting the new CNC mill up to 100% production. So guessing he does not have much time for picture taking.

yes sorry. been too busy really. the new machine only cost us a day in production time as we couldnt work as they brought it into the factory, although we were busy helping them.

the main problem is the machine loader has been on holiday for 3 weeks, this means i have to set and load the machines at the same time. with things to get on with something has to give and the first place to save time is taking and posting photos. thats as simple as it gets really.

anyway, some current photos...

Need to check which kit you are due next, but we have been through the lists of what people need this month, and what they can have. at this stage we can get a kit out to everyone before Christmas if you haven't already had a kit this month.

Thanks
