Earlier this year GBS Customer Chris Mitchell’s Zero build was featured on the blog, and it looks like his build is still progressing nicely and also nice to hear of a special little arrival! After visiting our stand at Stoneleigh Kit Car Show earlier this year Chris ordered a MT75 Gearbox which he received several weeks ago and has now fitted it to a new 2.0l Zetec engine. Chris said “Everything went smoothly but I had to use my 9 month pregnant wife for a bit of help (just checking clearances and nothing too heavy!!).  Anyway, after 5 hours of trial and error, it was finally bolted into place and I took the weight off the engine crane for the first time.  Everything went well and really happy with the result.” 

All that Chris has left now is the cooling system, exhaust and ECU……. And the amazing news that followed this, is that less than 24 hours after fitting the engine and gearbox, Chris became the proud dad to Baby Oliver.  Chris said that “Mum and baby are well and on day 5 he had his first lay in daddy’s GBS Zero”. We would like to send our congratulations and best wishes to Chris and his wife and look forward to seeing baby Oliver, from all the GBS Team.

It is also great to see that GBS Customer Mark Cassidy’s Zero build recently passed its IVA test, Mark sent us a photo of him with his Zero and his newly issued IVA pass certificate. We look forward to seeing more photos of Mark out and about enjoying his Zero. We also recently sent a GBS Zero kit to our dealers over in Sweden, which should be arriving with them anytime.
