I'd say that's a pretty good guess

I will have spent the equivelant of about 2500 pounds on materials by the time I have made my moulds.

I have seen figures quoted of 1000 hours to make a body pattern the old fashioned way (I have taken longer, and am just starting with moulds now)

So we need someone who is willing to work for 6 months (at 40 hours a week) for 37.5 pounds per hour (including overheads) to meet the 40 k estimate.

This assumes you start with a set of drawings, no computer/design time has been allowed for

Cheers

Hi all.

No progress to speak of at the moment.

Since i started my company i have had no spare time to do any work on the car, and as my time is now booked for the next year, i cant cant see that changing very soon.

I know keith is flat out with his main business at the moment so it has been put on the back burner.

If anyone wanted to get involved in the project or take the project on themselves, Keith and I would be happy to speak to them.

Thanks

Gaz

According to TotalKitCar it's Exceed Autocraft ltd (halfway down the page).

I can confirm that too - I had some cards plonked on my Aeon's seat while i was wandering around the show. Good to see that the car will be relaunched at the Newark show, but as a 2 seater like mine.

Hi all,

Well i have sold the Epona project, and i think it has gone to a good home. I cant wait to see the car full size and i am sure that Exceed will do a great job.

I will keep everyone posted with any news.

Hi Guys,

Just to let everyone know, the Epona is not an Aeon - but has (had?) connections with Aeon Sportscars. As far as I know, both projects have now been taken over by Exceed Autocraft who relaunched the Aeon GT2 (a variant of my car) last year at Newark.
Judging from the lack of activity on the development of both models (most probably down to the current recession) it looks like they have been shelved for the moment but I sincerely hope they will resurface in the near future as I honestly think they are both worthy projects which deserve to be kept alive.

If anyone has any more information I would love to know the full story.

Finally, on a personal note, I have now reluctantly sold my car through Pistonheads - mainly due to my health and personal circumstances.





Cheers,
Raz

What has happened to Exceed? It would appear from Stoneleigh that Aeon now have the GT back in-house...Epona now totally dead?
