My names Steve Fisk I've been building a peel replica for the last few months , I know replicas or fakes are abit of a sore subject in the classic car world but ever since I sat/stood in a real peel p50 at about 8 years old which was in bits in my dad's friends shed I always wanted one and probably like a million other people to , but I'm not a dreamer and will never be lucky enough to own sooooooooo I'm building one , also I'm looking for my dad's old friend who I'm sure is known by rum cars , will my build thread be welcome ?

Hi Steve. Long time no see, I don't even know if you will remember me, Bob Purton, I bought your Nobel back in the mid nineties. In fact I blame you for getting me back into microcars! :D
Of course your thread will be welcome, this forum is for all microcars young and old, most are only against replica's when the owners try and pass them off as real. With the transparency you have shown so far there is little danger of that being the case with yourself! Welcome to the forum Steve!

    I wanted the engine bolted to chassis in one piece instead of how the original peel set up was , also adding a bit more weight should make it abit more driverable

   ;D   Soooo, "Son of Fisk", I'm sure we're all itching to know; is that you with the very '90s haircut sat in the Messerschmitt?   8)
