This year we started building the vehicle from scratch after designing it. To build the chassis we ordered certain steel rods from the UK as they are hardly manufactured in Egypt. They took about 2 months to arrive and another 2 months to dispatch from the harbour. The moment we received the rods we started instantly working on the vehicle manufacturing and assembly.
The manufacturing phase started in late March/early April, but at this time, we had our exam season and we had to focus on them. RS Grass Roots have made our journey better and helped us to make our vehicle function better in the electrical system.
