Forget vinyl covered bits of alloy - that's how you do it. Looks brilliant!

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!

Door cards so far
The handle hole can be used or when we do the fake window winder that's electrically operated it will cover it or the door opener , I can't remember which goes where now !

Great feature! Car looks a million (48k?) dollars

Slightly over effusive write up c/w that author's previous outings (could he be angling for something? ) - although having seen it in real life you can't argue.

And with the obviously less accurate Modena (Bueller) reps changing hands at 75k http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C772541 the 2fifty looks to have a great future.

Spooky that the guestimate resale value came up considering the other DNA has just gone to market on ebay.

Real shame they felt the need to run the narcissistic back page article after everything had settled - it'll only serve to reinforce everyone's views, whichever side of the fence they were on.

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.

Great work

Rear lights are now in red
Got wider rear alloys fitted today also , so a bit more grip on the road and more stability
Also got my Ferrari badges on
