Love it Roger, looks like your enjoying it,

I did not reply earlier my browser was not showing your picture, and I was not sure what the post was about

I have had my car out and about a fair bit these last 2 weeks, although earlier part of this week the weather was a bit rubbish.

New to the site but hope I've sent the pm.
No paperwork or registration with the car so I am expecting some problems with getting it on the road!!
If I fail then I'll enjoy the project anyway. :)

That'll be me then!
I can certainly supply a CD with a digital build manual for your Bulldog, but before you start to spend a lot of money and even more hours on the car, please tell me that the V5C you have with your car shows that it is registered as a Pilgrim Bulldog. Hopefully you know the registration number of the car, and if it starts with a "Q" then you have the go ahead to spend as much money and time on the car as you wish.
If not, then you have a problem.
If you would like to send me a private email, we can start to talk about it without repeating many old threads on this forum about the current regulations and how difficult it is to get a car not designed to meet them registered nowadays. I'm pretty certain that the Bulldog will not pass the current regulations without expensive modifications including a new, current regulation conformant engine.
If you are aware of all of this, or if you are building this just a project and you are not interested in registering it for the road, please still send me a private email with your full name and address and I will send you a CD by return.

Hi it sounds like a bulldog, a chap called Ian watches this site and he has a lot of information, hopefully he will drop you a note. A photo of the car would help. Nigel

Hi, new to these cars but collected this part built a few weeks ago. Looks like it was built, possibly complete, but then somebody started to dismantle it. Looks like mostly Marina parts with an 1800 engine.
Is it still possible to get a build manual? I don't even know which version...

Thanks for the links, after a bit of looking around they(car builder solutions) have some videos on Youtube, this one shows how to make your own custom hoses

Thanks for all the links, I will take good look at them tomorrow. My hoses look fine but they have been on for a long time so I plan to replace them before too long.

Just for the record, I have just been speaking to John about this problem, and he is in possession of the log book of the original donor car, together with a set of number plates which the car was driven around on for several years, so there is a chance that we can hope that the DVLA will look kindly upon this particular case and issue a new V5C in the name of the current owner, and possibly showing the car as a Bulldog. John has spent the last (covid) year refurbishing the car (body off!) with no knowledge of the technical requirements of the IVA test, so there is little or no chance it could pass the test without modification. I know that the DVLA had an amnesty for kit cars that were not correctly registered, which is long gone, but there must be so few kit-cars our there now that are wrongly registered that getting one off that list and correctly registered must be something that they might well want to do? John has already spoken to the DVLA and they want to see a few forms filled in. Anyway I am going to help John on this path for now and see what happens. Nothing to loose and everything to gain I think. Wish us luck! Anything to prove that the car was used on the road would be helpful, so if anyone has any pictures of BKF 738K at a show, or anywhere come to think of it, or remembers the original owner/builder John Thomas (yes I know) who hailed from Liverpool please let me know.
