This is what I mean about backing the wrong horse. To get the vev1 classic look the headlight area had to be open and short which didn't work on the mk1. The mk2 mx5 in the picture/diagram shows it has better space for a short front. And as mentioned the boot space has to be compromised to get the lines to work. Use of the new boot space though can be used with a small squish bag. Possibly moving the battery terminals to inside the car or a new bracket in the new boot space with extended base. The swb shape is excellent to get the outline and lighting. Had I known this I would of spent more time aiming for the 2 vev version which was more track focused. Such is life.

Could you do the same with the overlay. But this time place a 1965 mustang fastback over the mx5. Looking at the side window it could work with the curvy side window.

Would go on top of an SLK (R170). Which would be great as I have one of those :)

Not exactly a bargain and simple build!
I'm more into Chris's "Stickn "N" Gluen" philosophy!

Yeah, me too.

Would love to see a tribute car based on the SLK though! Plenty of them out there. Cheap enough, great engines in the 230's (2.3 Supercharged) and the R170's are easy enough to work on without loads of electric wizardry

Got to be a bit careful with Merceds, the have form : http://www.mercedesheritage.com/2012...lwing-replica/

The 5.5 V8 isn't too shoddy either, especially with Kleemann S8 upgrades including a fookin great supercharger

:tea:Something that looks like neri and bonacini studio gt due litri would be nice minus the pop up lights

Just to destroy my credentials for posting on a car enthusiasts site, that looks like a fat lads internal organs.

I recon Chris could have one ready by next weekend based on a Herald:shocked:

Love the boat tail

Maybe a scimitar would allow more scope for a low slung body and shorter screen. Lights look fancy.

A while back on this thread I suggested a Porsche speedster built on a boxster donor - looks like someone's about to build some

Starke has not produced anything yet!
Selling places in line I assume. Lots of noise on
