Hey everyone I'm a newbie. Owned an Avon a few years back but only for around six month then sold to fund new van. Currently looking ready to buy next summer. Really want to do a build but worried I would be in to deep. Thinking about buying and then learning by doing all the maintenance upkeep myself. Any thoughts from you guys much appreciated. Thinking Avon with my funds but fully caged and looking mean running new duratec.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Ginge,
I've got a caged Duratec Avon which I built. Really enjoyed the build and the driving is even better. That said it was expensive and if I done it again I would put a zetec in as I think it works out quite a bit cheaper.

Thanks for the reply Neil
I'm really tempted to build I'm a chippy and very hands on and good with learning and self teach bits and pieces just mechanics scares me. Is it as straight ford ( I'm sure that's not the word ) as made out to be.

Yes straight forward but I owned one before I built mine so had an idea what I wanted and I'm from an engineering background. It does tend to take over your life for a bit. Well it did for me as I wanted it on the road asap. Loads of help on here as well as locostbuilders from some very knowledgeable people.
It's a great feeling knowing you built it.
I'd say go for it

Morning Ginge, build it, not as scary as you would think when you break it all down into little bits. Good luck.
