I'll nominate my Roberts White Spider for consideration. I finished building it last month after picking it up as a bit of a basket case late last year. Still a couple of tweaks here and there, new elastomers etc. But I'm pretty pleased with it:)

Markjohnson76 1994 Roberts White Spider.

Thanks!

That White Spider looks nice in black, have you got a build thread for it?

Hi Mark. I don't have one for it. It's been a slow build that changed many times. I'll try to put one together but this is how it started. Bought for £50 from a guy who was amazed I'd pay that much for it. It was headed for the skip!

:) its great what you can find sometimes. I was curious wether you had sprayed it black, that kind of answers my question, do you know if the colour is original?

Pretty sure it's original:) Decals all look original and no trace of other colours anywhere
