Hello Kai

I think it's documented on here somewhere but yes it was a mould from 206 shell altered to fit a europa chassis. Looking at the cascu shell and my dino shell I think the whole back was cut behind the door and moved forward some 2 inches or so. this would be why the deon/jhclassic is that way as that was moulded from that first car. The cascu engine lid is the same size but the boot lid is 70mm or nearly 3 inches longer.
