Default Z300swb?

Masybe someone with photoshop skills could to better but here is a start


The bonnet will be cut and changed a bit to fit the standard standard door skins and the little side wings on the Z300S.

Then when I feel like Ferrari Friday I undo the bonnet hinges and swap the fronts.

Maserati Monday and it is just swap them over again.

What could possibly go wrong?

Just because something can be done- doesn't mean it should. The proportions of the cars are too different and although Chris/Dan's skills will make it fit, it will never look right.
Suggest you extra sweet-talk herself and buy the red demonstrator.

The red one has gone and no way I can get another 2 seater convertible past the boss.

It is a little bit of narrowing to compensate for no door skins. The back ends of the two cars were about the same length so proportions not that different.

I agree that is may turn out like the result of a bad car crash in a Tribute showroom but I had the same worries when getting the Z300S made and that turned out okay.

Just ordered some coilovers to drop the front on mine a bit. Pictures of the fitting and blood at the weekend probably.

I wonder if Chris and Dan have considered using different ends of two their two kits to produce two new models. because the Kobra and Z300S don't have grp doors skins it would be an easy job to create a Zobra variant with a Z300S front and the Kobra rear or vice versa. Anybody fancy a go at photoshop?

A bit of digital t-cut from someone and the paint jobs will blend seamlessly

Here you have a couple of quick Photoshops (although not too good) just to give you a rough idea.

What you going for, cobra front ? Should look interesting,and another reason why choosing black paint was a good idea.
I waved at you and shouted on Saturday I think it was I was just stepping out of motor home as you drove past in the z300. Ed.

I think a cobra front on the 250 would also look interesting.

I have tried to improve a little on previous Photoshops.





Im sure that some of these mix n match ideas are not to everyones taste but
many new ideas could be created this way.
