I remember those MX5 to F3rr@r1 kits. I think someone was also making MX5 to F3rr@r1 Daytona Spyder kits a few years ago.

Default Simpson dseign/Retroforza

I believe there was some 'situation' between simpson design in the USA and retroforza, a nice looking piece of kit anyhow. The simpson is not cheap, (about 8.5K US If I am right for the full kit) the retroforza was a fraction of that. All a shame, I tried contacting them a while ago and never got an answer so presumed the worst.

Default Simpson / Retrofoza

From what SD say, Retroforza bought a Simpson Kit and took some molds off it.

I've been in touch with Jim from Simpson design and he only wants $500 per kit produced off his patterns. Seems pretty reasonable to me. Wonder where the Retroforza molds ended up?
