    Aston Martin Replica

    Anyone completed an Aston Martin replica with an XK8 Jag donor?
    When are extreme coming out with theirs?
    Looking at www.carkitinc.com any recommendations?

    I just bought one, XK8 based, but a one-off kit, the guy did it all himself at his shop. The looks great I just need to finish paining the hood and its ready to go.

    Anyone had any dealings with www.carkitinc.com and the Aston kit?

    Had a few emails from them,very short replys with very little info?
    A bit suspicious?

    Can't find a build diary on youtube?

    Answering my own questions here...
    It's a convertible db9 by all accounts so can't really be 7th gen so must be 5th or 6th.
    Any of you photoshop whizzes able to do a side by side of the windscreen? It's going to be about 7 inches shorter in the wheel base.
