Julian Edgar doesn't have much good to say about his Tickford visit.
(Update: Sorry, the link is for members only ..)
Here's a summary:
He goes on and on about the reuse of the Windsor V8 (39 year old design), when nobody else is powering their cars with engines of this sort of age.
He doesn't like the new aero bits on the TS50 ..
Then regarding his tour:
* Highlighted the fact that Tickford takes 0km cars and throws out lots of brand new parts (ie calipers, extractors.
* Critisised the process for adding aero parts (ie apparent 'misuse' of a power drill) - "I have seen neater and more careful jobs carried out in suburban body shops."
* Didn't like the sunroof installation either .. "What you get is an aftermarket Hollandia sunroof installed by the simple expedient of cutting - with a pair of powered sheers - a big hole through the roof."
Just getting the gist of his comments across.. the article is quite long. I think the 'From the editor' posts become publicly readable after a couple of weeks.
