    please,please do NOT put a body like that on a stupid porshe, mr2,or fiero. i dont care if you buy from me or not but that body is just to nice, and of course spot on to the real thing to be on a donor car. either build your own chassis, or buy one. thier is only a few of us out thier building chassis for you all. you know if you think about all the time you have in prepping a donor car, you could build or have a custom chassis. and i do not know about the other builder but i build them suited to the customers money and budget. i have only had one guy that laid all the cash on the table at once. think about the time you would have in a donor, the performance of the donor, the saftey in the donor, and how the work will appear in the donor, and the comfort of the finished product over the donor. now consider the custom chassis in all them areas. and then all of a sudden you realize that if you sell the car it would be worth alot more if its built on a tube chassis. now i do not know how bartman, joe, or this patriot chassis does sells and its know of my buisness. (sorry if i missed any other chassis builders out thier) but i know all my customers out thier are very happy with thier cars.

    someone in UK do Audi but very complicated since it use to many computers even on doors ,which you can't start engine without it.

    I could be wrong.
    BMW 750 most popular cause it kind of looks a like diablo and is cheaper to get it.

    Not soliciting, I don't have time for anything else. My advise is replica chassis if budget is not an issue. Chassisworks was designed as a cheaper, easier to build chassis. It is strong, Mike did a great job, it is much easier to build than the replica chassis. The shortfall is there is less foot room because of the shape and location of the foot boxes. The replica has more foot room.
