MX5 is probably your best bet. Plenty of rusted out MX5's to choose from. Buy a complete car so you can transfer everything across you need.

I think you might have to rethink the fixings. That's a big chunk that's come away. I would be tempted to simply fill it, re drill and use small self tappers with rubberised washers.

Wow, looks great. The subtle look with toned down colour choice, both the bodywork and the wheels really give the car an authentic appearance.

The "lay up" insurance is a good idea whilst building a kit, especially as most standard car policies won't cover a pile of parts.

Called in at the paint shop today. They have done loads of prep and they're nearly ready for the final top coat. After a lot of thought I've gone with a slightly lighter shade of red.
