    Kit car for a newbie

    Hey mechanics.

    I'm a young guy who study in high school, who soon are looking for a car.

    When I sat and looked after car, I suddenly fell over a 'kit car' which surprised me a lot, so I googled further and found a lot of information and this forum.

    I am a guy who has screwed hands well, but I could nevertheless use your help.


    Be course I am a student, I would like to keep the budget low, since cars are already really expensive here in Denmark.

    What car and what kit would recommend me to throw myself into that first-time project that can be kept inside for a lower price level as at the same time looks good? - I'm looking for the 'golden medium way'


    Thanks in advance.

    That dosent exist.
    Kit cars are very limited in Denmark.
    You only have a few numbers you can use as a donor.
    Vw bug, citr÷en 2cv, loose frames (old fords, volvos etc.)
    You can build a body kit on a mr2, fiero and so on, you just cant stretch it, or remove anything elss then body panels.
    And the tax to rebuild is quite high.
    Write to Bent on kit&buggy service, he can guide you on what kits there can be build on a non and shortend vw pan.

    Or you can write to me (cmi-cars@hotmail.com) og ja jeg snakker dansk.
    Im in the progress on building a kit car on a non shortend vw pan and hopeing for the best when it shall go throug the inspection.
    If not, there is another way to get them approved but that costs over 25K and then the tax comes after also.

    http://www.mr2kits.co.uk/ for a low cost donor and kit

    http://www.dnaautomotive.com/ if you have a little more to spend

    both are mr2/mrs re bodies and easy to build as far as kits go.

    You need a Mk2 Mr2 ( 1989 onwards ) to fit these kits, it's not designed to fit a Mk1 Mr2

    I have bought an exact replicas 355 kit. It is definately the most accurate 355 kit and looks pretty easy build. If you contact alpina-Ferrari on the forums. He is the guy doing the gallardo build diary his son has a build of his 355. I got my kit last week but have moved house so waiting till my garage is built to get started.
