Welcome to my Caterham 310S Build Blog.  I was tempted to title it “How to Build a Seven?”, with emphasis on the question mark and a touch of irony but thought better of it.

I hope you enjoy reading about the trials and tribulations of the build and hopefully find something of both interest and, if you’re embarking on your own build journey, of some use.

If you’re reading this bit, you are on the Home page, which should also show the most recent posts and include an archive section showing when posts were published.

I hope the menus make some sense, with posts group under Pre-build and Build as well as a few tags to point you in the direction of particular areas of interest.  Assuming I’ve done it right, you should also be able to search for anything specific you’re interested in.
