Default Unfinished Dino Kit anyone interested?

I have decided to give up on the Classic Replica Dino I took from the company instead of the finished car promised. I have had to admit here is just to much work for me with my other commitments.
I recently took the 3 L V6 engine out to make the car more manageable.
so there is a body (now in 2 parts)
doors
engine boot lid (1 piece)
Chassis
Engine
Front Screen (told this is a Dino screen by the company)
2 petrol tanks
front hubs ( not fitted)
pedal box
steering rack
steering column
wiring loom
Brake lines in but no master cylinder.

Take it that everything else is missing so there is a lot of work required.

I will probably put it on ebay if no one here is interested. I just thought I would ask you guys first.

What you will need in my opinion to get this car finished.
*Realistically 10-15 k after buying from me in parts and to get work completed depending on your skills
*Good mechanical knowledge and preferably experience of building kit cars.
*space to store & patients.

After having a dreadful experience with the company who built these cars (Classic Replicas) and only being able to find one owner (globally) who have one on the road after an extensive search. I really wanted to turn this round and despite all this put this car on the road but it is not realistic for me now due to other commitments . It is possible but every thing would have to start from the beginning again. The car cost me over 10k and I know I was ripped off so would not expect this for the car, all I would like is some return so it isn't quite such a painful experience. I've been told that by a couple of respected professionals who I have had look over the car that 3k would be a realistic value so anything over that would be a bonus. You would have to pick it all up on a trailer or in a large van and I offer no guarantee's about the car at all.
I would be happy to stay in touch and help out with all the information and contacts I have made that may help complete the car. Unlike Classic Replicas I do have a conscience and have no intention of lying to anyone. You can check out my other posts on this site to find out more of this cars history. Photo's & video's of the car are available. I do want it gone soon though.

Hi Axel,
your right pic's would be good and I have had another IM asking the same but I have been busy moving the car and rally the photo's I have would not do it any justice because the car is covered in dust. I haven't done a thing with it since Classic Replicas forced me to pic it up or pay extra charges for storage.
I will take the time tomorrow to clean off the panels and photoghraph so I can add them tomorrow them.

Hi Inspace, sorry you had to give up on your project - it seems it was dogged by trouble from the start. Let us hope someone else has the time and money and ingenuity to build this into a good car and that they post progress reports on here.

Dinoish - it would be interesting to see photos of your projects on here. How did you get the body to fit an MR2 since the rear strut height is higher than the Dino body?
Cheers

Hi All,
I did sell the car and tried to give the new owner as much help and advise as I could. I really wish him well with the project, after all it is a beautiful car if it can be finished and the horrors caused by Classic Replicas over come. I advised that he goes back to the start and checks the chassis out and improves on the work done. Thanks for all your support here it was and is appreciated
