I have built a couple of cars from scratch including the roadster in my avatar - finished in about 2012.
In fact this project has been in my head even when I built my roadster I just was waiting for things to fall into place.
I phoned Chris a couple of times recently and well spoke about bits and pieces hidden away in his workshop gathering dust
Saturday I took the 2 1/2 hour drive that took 5 hours down to Dorset.
My son patiently waited while Chris and I chewed the fat and designed a car.
The 250 swb is beautiful and I would love one but circumstances means I don't have a place to build one.
The z300 looks a more suitable base. Just front and rear body sections.
However the rear will feature recessed lamps of a more modern styling and a recessed number place appature.
The front end is a different story - I envisage z300 with a grafted on section from another model but I will say no more until Chris has mulled it over.
As for details Chris is great with an "anything is possible" attitude and the brainstorming session gave us a few vey neat styling features.
