We still have to provide Kidge with his hard top kit. The body shown will be modified to provide the buck for the convertible mould.

Convertible with a modified hardtop would be nice.
I wonder if that nice Dan will do a Daytona

I think the Z3 soft top will work well on the 275 convertible.

Probably look better than the originals

A bit like the 250swb without the beer ledge at the rear.

Tribute - It is great to see the first panels being created, this should be another great kit.

Chris & Dan - I hope everything works out well for both your companies going forward.

Good luck, Paul.

Ordering one will be way to make the model available sooner rather than later.
Its not a great risk there has never been an ugly Tribute and all the hard work has been done

The OMP Silverstone Classic Bucket is very similar and @ 160 each not too expensive.

Thanks for that but very similar to the Intatrim ones I tried at Stoneleigh. Classic Italian seats were more rounded.
I had ones of the right shape in my 1960 TVR, and no seatbelts !!!

I'll likely end up with Cobra type seats providing I can find the correct shade of brown to suit the period.
