    Looking for a porsche 356 speedster kit

    I know it's a bit early but I'm allready starting to make plans for my second kit.
    It's gonna be a 356 speedster and I wonder if any knows a good shop in the UK?

    Not in the UK, but at the knotts show this year there was a company in California making bodies. The looked pretty good.

    Thanks, but that's just a bit to far away for me, because I'm from Holland I thought the UK would be the best option because I like to look before I buy.

    I think Chesil are still going.
    I don't knwo about now, but back in the 90's they were really THE main 356 company.
    In the US there are many but Intermechanica (the spelling isn't right...) but they are considered to be the most accurate.
    I had one of thier kits and it was amazing. I'm not sure they sell in kit form any more.
    Also of not (sorry can't remember the company name) but in one of the UK kitcar magazines (November issue - can anyone help me out there - it had the Typhoon in it as well) was a new development for a new, stiffer floorpan than the stock beetle pan but 1/3 lighter. The same company that did it had ties with a 356 company.
    I noted it as I always have the idea of building a 356 coupe one day. Maybe...

    but maybe just buy my car ... it was one of the first Intermeccanica (they are now up here in Canada, in Vancouver, and no, they don't sell kits anymore). It is now fully restored, the engine got a $3k overhaul and we invested almost $20k total in new parts, paint etc ... a beauty! I can easily ship it to Holland, I just shipped a 190SL to Rotterdam ;-)
