    Great item on Singer in this month's EVO, you're a lucky man! wink

    Yes - with some lovely photograpy as well.

    Any link for this EVO article?

    Not on their website  - you need a digital subscription to see on iPad etc

    Ok thanks, I´ll get it later, EVO is one the best car magazine out there.

    Would love to , but there will naturally be some sensitivity from them around exposing too much.

    The car  will now go off for all the carbon panels to be fabricated, put in place, resurfaced, and then painted. A true piece of hand made automative art in progress !

    Thanks for sharing Crayphile!
    Could you also update us when you have pics of the carbon panels? Really interested to see what technologies they use, how they are mounted to the body, etc.

    @Joost  - Here you go.  The car is now at a third party where the car's shell has been fitted with its carbon panels and then the ones that require bonding have been permanently attached to the chassis. The lights etc are only "dry  - fitted" at this stage and then removed. Once all the panels have been approved for fit and finish the car will painted before it is returned to Singer. Every step, and I mean EVERY step,  is hand done and to tolerances well beyond mass production cars - it will be worth the wait. For those interested the Singer website is updated and has photos of much of the production process.
