I built this Covin from scratch back in 2000 and carried out all the work myself in a simgle garage including painted it outside in the back lane of our old flat... As you do. :lol:
It took me 10 months to build and Soon after completing the build, I became the Covin Owners Club Technical Advisor back in 2001 and have since been heavily involved with the running of the club including creating the Covin Technical website and Forum www.covin.co.uk

Ok... Here's a Mug shot of me to put up on your dart boards... :lol: :lol:

The Covin is an almost exact replica of the Porsche 911 Turbo and many Porsche body panels/parts are interchangable. It uses it's own Chassis with VW Type 3 Running gear, choice of engines is vast but the most popular choices are VW Air-Cooled or the Ford CVH mounted to VW 4 Speed box via Adaptoplate.

SPECIFICATIONS of my Covin as follows.....

Correctly Registered as COVIN
Year: 1971 and Tax Exempt
Colour: Porsche Guards Red
Modified RS Turbo wiring harness to Porsche controls/switchgear
Tuned 170 BHP Ford RS Turbo engine

:oops: Aww Shucks... Cheers matey.... Think I enjoy building them more than driving them. I've built 2 more since I built mine, one for my Wife and another for a friend of mine.

Now I'm up to my neck in muck welding up my Bus. That's a real nightmare :lol: :lol: Can't wait till it's finished though :wink:
