At Last... an e-mail from Caterham

After a bit of a wait been given 20th January as my delivery date.... & some pictures from the factory with my name on it!... glad the snows just started my garage will be well toasty ....

Last push before delivery:

a) Sorted out build insurance, spent a morning ringing around & was surprised at the variety of costs given & also the lack of enthusiasm from some of the 'specialist' providers. In the end I settled on Footman James who were helpful, enthusiastic & the cheapest. £200 fully comp for the build which can be transferred to road mode when required. Bizarrely the cost for 'on the road' is slightly cheaper than the build insurance... so I'll get a rebate, even the broker couldn't explain & put it down to an 'IT glitch'... Most expensive were Reis who were nearer £400-00.

b) Re-sorted & cleaned the garage which had taken a turn for the worse over xmas & the project managers car has left mud & grot all over the floor... & the PM's not too happy that her car's going to be booted out onto the road for the foreseeable future (ever)... needs must...

c) Last few purchases, masking tape, bubble wrap, pipe lagging, comfy floor tiles, the new yellow floor tiles are like kneeling on ball bearings... oh well it was a good idea at the time & its easy to clean!

After all this time waiting I'm panicking that I've already forgotten all the bloggs I've read... tried to look through the manual but without the bits in hand its confusing me more... maybe it will confuse me more when I do have the bits in my hand! a worry... hopefully one step at a time will be easier to digest.

Two days to go... not heard from anyone at Caterham regarding actual delivery.. I'll give them a ring tomorrow...

All systems go! leaving Dartford at 09-00 so should be with me by midday...
