    Stupid question maybe, but does Brian know of anyone with an unfinished kit?

    Damn!
    I hate seeing build threads where people obviously know what they are doing - so humbling!
    Keep up the great work and posting. :)

    Skyflash
    I’d be surprised if a kit would make sense anymore.
    In the UK an R8 can be had for as little as $40k US. In the US they are in the tall $50s for early high miles cars.
    By the time you...

    Again Italian KR is correct. The best way is no engine or trans in the car to ship it over.

    I echo what Italian KR has said. Iíve had the same experience.

    I would also recommend that the kit NOT be a replica of anything else. Otherwise you stand the risk of having the parts impounded...

    Wow - after all these years this thread still keeps popping up! Itís over 10 years old!

    Iíve an Ariel Atom Ďkití. It was a disassembled Ariel that was shipped to China.
    No dice selling them there, so a clever soul here in the US bought them and sold them as kits.

    Watch out when you research prices for Porsche transmissions from the aircooled 911s.
    There are essentially three main types:
    901, 915 and G50.

    There are many subsets of these - 4 and 5 speed,...

    Are you stuck on Lambo kits?

    At the moment, Fiero based 328 style kits seem like a good deal. Iíve always wanted to own one on airride.
    $7k will get you a great base for one.

    Itís not just replacing the GRP you have to worry about, it will also have a heat treated chassis after the flames.

    Heat treating steel can do terrible things to its structure.

    Great videos Nathan.
    In some ways I wish I hadnít started the Porsche restoration project. I still have a hankering to make a one off from scratch and your reverse plug looks ideal for it!

    For me, the styling is still a little out. Then again, Iím pretty sure that the people on here are not your target audience.

    Iím not exactly a style guru though - as I sit here in a T shirt and...

    Tough call.

    Back end looks like it has Ford Street Ka lights. Front end looks close to cool but not quite there. I think itís something to do with the front bumper.

    Itís a nice alternative to...

    There's also a number of DNA kits, if you are lucky enough to find an unstated one.
    That could be a 360 or 430.
    UK eBay would be a good place to watch if you are willing to import one.
