Unfortunately, there are certain kits you should steer clear of and this is probably one of them.

Would need an IVA due to windscreen change?

Yes, the copyright is in Germany, but not the UK, 100% not the US where there are a few replica's of this car.

Your prayers have been answered,

Tribute have the moulds to make these, I have seen one they sold to a body shop owner in Shaftesbury, I think he is using a SLK 230 as a doner.

IVA will be needed.

In fact looking at the pictures and the workshop it is the same kit lol

Really?! This is great news!

R170 SLK or R171 SLK ? I really can't wait for this kit!

was based on a LHD SL and was up for 95,000, shame you can't see the pics, it was a good replica of the 300SL

You'll never get a "kit" - this is ultra DIY and huge amounts of work, hacking and cutting and fabricating hence the prices being commanded for these reps when completed usually in the 130 to 150k range.

Agreed, would be a huge amount of work.

I know its difficult to tell just from the pictures and what flex is in the main tub just sitting on the floor, but not one panel looks like it will fit without major modifications. One for the brave.
