    Donors to kitcars

    So over the weeks I've been studying which companys produce what kitcars with what cars.

    I'm after doing a 360 or 360syder

    And so far, i've noticed

    extreme kit cars work off a peuagot 406
    DNA work off a Toyota mr2/mrs

    And some cars are using fiero's?

    Can anyone give me some back ground on which cars use less hardwork involved - / more suitable

    and which other cars are donors with different companys.

    I hate to say it, but the Fiero is not a good donor for a 360. It will never be accurate without a lot of modifications. The roofline doesn't lend itself well to the 360.

    The Extreme kit will require more welding and cutting. I believe the DNA doesn't require any welding, and minimal cutting.

    Also, there's the Dave Jones kit:
    http://www.mr2kits.co.uk/
    http://www.dnaautomotive.com/ckc_2.pdf
    It's not as accurate, but is still a good looking car. There's a recent build diary on the forum with someone building this car. It seems to be mainly a bolt on kit.

    And this one, but I know nothing about it:

    This might be a good thread for people to choose their donor cars for their specific kit.

    2000-2005 MR2 has been used for Lambu Garrlardo..........
    Jaguar xk8 for Astun marrtinns Vannquash..........


    Anyone found a match for kits suitable for a Nissan 350z?....I noticed plenty 350z's around ;D
