I love this and could see myself being tempted by a body conversion type of kit. Good luck with it all

This is really starting to look seriously good. I'm not sure about the name and badge style ( horses for courses ) I think leaving it unbadged would have people thinking it was some exotic obscure super car for the super rich. but really well done. some great designs, I absolutely love the back of the roof bulge

I do love the look of the car and hope you sell many kits but I do agree about the name and the badges you have had made wont do the car any justice at all. They look awfully china cheap like. Good look at Stonleigh

I say that about the badges as they remind me of a set of 'ferrari' centercap badges I bought off ebay from china for my tribute MX250....



They lasted all about 10 seconds on just so I could take the picture!

Is supprising how cheap you can get a logo made up by a graphics designer as apposed to a home made job using the likes of microsoft paint.

Wayne - Congratulations on getting your kit into production.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the funding from in the end?

I actually think the yellow logo is easier to read than the previous red one.

Although the font used for "Sports Cars" is not very clear at all, sorry.

Good luck, Paul.

PS
You could always PM Anthony Cherry about the design/logo/bagdes for his Bertini kit.

WOW really really well done. Can't wait to see it painted. would love to see a debaged black with blacked out windows or storm trooper black and white.
This is such a great shape.

Agreed it looks great, seriouslly thinking about dumping my sammio and buying one o these. A couple of questions: I see on your Facebook page you say "doner ready to be chopped' how and what gets chopped? Is there any welding todo? What parts provided in the kit? Can't get you r webpage to load, when will it be ready and are there build instuctions ? Kit price/Deposit /delivery / ?

Thx Barry

Thanks for your comments guys. The kit will be 4500 for a fill panel set including windows. The sill sections are completely removable from the car so you can get to the sills still for repairs in the future. Rear screen is an opening plexiglass screen so no boot lose. The front inner wings are cut back as well as the radiator panel but no cutting of the chassis rails or crossmember. The front will end up looking the same as a mk2 inside. The rear end you cut and flare the arches. Rear quarters the hole for the lights is enlarged to take the new lights. A panel will be included to re seal the boot area. Again no chassis rails are cut. Hope this helps.

Wayne it really is a good looking car that you have produced and I wish you all the luck selling kits but take a look at the prices from tribute automotive for there body conversion kits. Your price seems rather high
