After reading some other Caterham build blogs I knew that I wanted to have a good look through all the boxes and see what was missing before I started the build in earnest. I also wanted to check that nothing had been damaged during delivery. I don’t seem to be missing anything obvious, but sadly some parts have taken some damage during transit.
The radiator has clearly been dropped or slid around in the van so this will need to go back to Caterham for a replacement, and the chassis paintwork has got some scuffs here and there. The saddest one for me though was the nosecone which had clearly rubbed on one of the chassis members and been damaged. The paint is gone and there’s a decent chunk of fibreglass gone so it will need a specialist repair.
I contacted Greg at BookaTrack who was really helpful – the nosecone and paint scuffs will be sorted when the car goes in for Post Build Check so nothing to worry about!
