    Cool Hello from Bridgend Wales

    Well I have decided to take the big step and join the forum, and the bigger step of putting initial deposit down with LB for a Stratos. I am scheduled in to visit Lister Bell in September to start selecting options etc, and September can'//t come soon enough. Already counting how many sleeps I have until then.....

    I will probably go Turnkey minus and do as much of the build myself, having built and rallied a number of cars. I am just rebuilding the current rally car now, and will have that completed ready to clear the workshop of the best toy of all, a Stratos.

    All advice welcome on selecting options and actual builds. Currently thinking of going Group 4 Round arch, Alfa V6 3.0 or 3.2, probably Chardonnet blue.

    Welcome aboard - plenty of advice here - and good to hear that Craig is taking deposits again and hope that your wait is not too long for kit/turnkey delivery. A good choice of colour incidentally ! (same as mine). When you get your car you will not be disappointed.

    First tip perhaps, having been out in mine yesterday, and with the forthcoming weather forecast, go for the A/C option that LB include!!!!!!!

    Welcome to the Forum and the Club, as has been said, you will find plenty of information and advice on here, and don't be afraid to ask questions, we are all keen to help like minded enthusiasts.

    Welcome along. Bet it's an exciting time

    Numptie question alert from me: Turnkey minus... isn't that where they build you an almost finished car minus the engine/gearbox?
