Was it the Spitfire that had that dash or the German Messerschmitt :lmao

That dash is not really my cup of tea but at least it looks like it fits ok.
I'm not sure what the dash has come off though as I don't recognise it at all :smt017

to build one with all the info and ideas you can get from here , if you had the money, then i reckon you could do one in a year or so, but to rebuild one, then it could be double that quite easly :smt012 or longer depending on your eye for finish :smt003 :smt003 :smt004

I built my Covin in 10 months but that was working at least 6 hours every weekday and all weekends and days off work. I'd also had quite a few extensive car builds under my belt so thought I knew what to expect...... I was wrong though :lmao
It wasn't an easy build and I did everything on the car myself.

I agree with Mark, a Covin build can be done in 1 year but more realistic would be 18 months. As for a rebuild :smt017 Easy double that as you need to undo all the crap that some numpty has had a go at and failed :smt018
So not only will you be working every spare hour but a rebuild will also cost you much more money in the long run than simply buying the right Covin that's already complete and on the road to start off with :smt012

I am buying this Covin. Does anyone have any more information about it?
Also does anyone know why it is now on a Q plate?

This is probably now on a Q plate because it's been registered correctly :smt012
