I know I'd prefer a new chassis with modern mechanicals instead of 70 year old tech. Yes IVA would be needed, but is that such a bad thing, when the end product will be much better?

Maybe the Pie Valley Buggies chassis (which has been designed to replace the beetle floorpan) would make an ideal basis for this bodshell. With a VW lump in the boot (turbo charged) or an Audi it...

That comes out very small on my computer. I guess there are no 'fixing pins' on the rear? Don't know what to suggest apart from 'some sort of adhesive' - sorry that's not very helpful.

Am I correct in thinking the deadlock will be identified by locking the door and seeing the one which moves (not the deadlock)? Would further pressure move the deadlock and confirm it?

Have you progressed on the trezetta? IMHO this has a lot of potential, and I like the way you are tackling it - first class.

Your method of using framework and woven roving appears good, and it's great to see 'out of the box' thinking. Did you consider using foam panels to get to the shape? the foam spray is very expensive...

Interesting work you're doing there. Do the panels unbolt from the donor, so that once the buck is made (and mould lifted from that) the GRP will just bolt on, replacing the originals? Bonding on to...

I guess easier in effort, but possible more 'distance push' on the button? Does the bar (that the plate is attached to 'rotate'?)
Forgive, it that's a daft question, as I don't have a Z3

When suppliers don't readily provide the price on site it makes me think (rightly or wrongly)that their price isn't competitive and I shop elsewhere!

I'd be inclined to go for some of the 'teardrop shape' BMW ones, or another one that's caught my eye as being 'in period' is the Ford Mondeo Mk4 one!

Why not? it wouldn't be difficult to graft on a 'transmission tunnel shaped' piece on to the roof -:idea: indeed the bit you cut off the panel can be used!
GRP is the ideal 'can be repaired forever'...
