    just got the car into a body shop, started on it saturday this is how far i got, another 2 to 3 weeks and ill start body work, on it,only have time to work 4 hours a day, using lotus elise side glass fits perfectly with some modiffications will be good donor, the reason that i desided to use a side glass from elise is its flat at the top makes the car roof line lower like the carrera, enjoy,

    Man this is really cool! I actually just joined this forum to follow your build thread.

    I Googled "DBR GT" to find out what one was and came across your YouTube and Drive Your Dream posts and discovered that you had designed this from the ground-up -- including going from plans to forms to clay. Incredible! Also it is a great looking car.

    If this is normal for you guys on Mad Mechanics, I have been spending my time in the wrong places...

    Can't wait to see your car take shape.

    Thanks, rj
