    Re: Another Cheap 355 KIT on eBay.

    This type of car is very hard to build for people like us. The car history is a splash of an IFG kit to a Jack Lucas kit to a Mike Vetter kit (Mike fixed 90% of the flaws in the body in 1999) to a Paulís Exotics kit and is believed to be out of production.

    Everything is in parts except the main rear clip. Ask Ari or Don about this type of kit.

    Save yourself some time and money in the long run and get one from John Watson @ 706-328-3311 of contact Mike Nixon on this site for one that is almost finished for a great price.

    No need to step over dollars to pick up pennies and have a frustrating experience fabricating a kit car.

    I'm with Dave;

    Don't go there. I have cut every panel on my car in the past 4 years to get it to line up better. Still not perect but it is now better. Buy from John and you will be many miles, many dollars, and many hours ahead of splashes such as this one.

    This particluar kit does not have the rear top angles behind the convertible like original either. It looks flat does it not?

    Your decision but make that decision with open eyes.

    Cheers

    Someone buys a part or peice of something and rather than wanting to buy it ever again they make a mold, "usually a very cheap quality mold" The molds splashed from the IFG kit's were warped very bad and usually very thin. The Molds weren't braced and supported correctly so in turn the peices came out Horrible. This is were the term splash came from. Duplicating or splashing making a copy.
