I asked Brian at Stone Leigh - the answer is no and totally justified to be fair. He's protecting his customers investment whilst ensuring DNAs products have additional desirability and thus ultimately protecting resale values. Admirable stance.
Yeah i thought that would be the case. I built a ferrari 360 replica about 10 years ago and asked about door cards and fake engine etc as the company i got my kit from didnt make them. I got the same answer!
hi danny,yes the one on ebay went for 45k.and since my mates seen mine in paint hes just gone out and bought a 3.0ltr z3 and is stripping it in october to do one.looks like there will be a good turn out of them at the shows next year.brian from DNA took one to a classic car show this summer and it went down a storm.
That will make all the difference, whenever I look at the rear I think MGB, it may be because I owned one but this will make it so much better.
I was looking at the advert on Ebay for the one that just sold and two things came to mind. Firstly there is a picture of the rear end with the lights on, the rear numberplate lights clearly shine on the bodywork well below the numberplate, the bumper looks to be too low.
The second thing was that although it looks very nice not to have a join showing on the sill, it may be a good idea to have a join under the front of the door. That way the front clamshell could be removed for major engine work. If the cars are going to sell for these sort of sums they will be around for a long time so future maintenance needs to be as accessible as possible.
