Preparation and painting
Building a Pilgrim Sumo
|After a trip to the Newark kit car show (17th June
2000) and having taken my cheque book (I never learn!)
I came away with a Pilgrim Sumo kit car on order complete with donor Ford Sierra car!
I will be using the engine from the donor vehicle, a Ford 2.9 fuel injection V6 and all the running gear.
Early days yet and lots to learn!
