    easiest kit to build?

    i have been trying to find kits with a minimal skill level since i am a beginner builder. so far, the one i have found that looks the simplest to build is the 355 on www.b-bspyder.com. can anyone vouch for this? basically i am a canadian looking to build a nice yet simple to install kit fairly mid cost. some have suggested the artero but i don't really like the looks of it. specifically the back wheelwell squareness and the mixed styling.

    Are bolt on rebodies the easiest? also, do any of you know of any other links to reputable kits that are of low skill level?

    I dont think that the 355 is in anyway the eaisist kit to build.Second,B&Bs kit is a copy of another kit.I would assume that the origanel kit would be a lot simpler to to build than a coppy.Ive tried to build B&B kits for a year now,and havent completed a single one,neather has the owner.If your a first time builder,start with a simpler kit.

    B&B spyder customs is listed in the consumer Alert Section.Remember the front nose is made of fiber glass,if you ask me I think you would crack the fron spoiler because it's so low.I personaly think the fiero SS (Testarossa) is one of the easyiest http://www.fierofactory.com/
    Because it's a non strech kit and you retain your stock fenders and hood.I think the 282 version needs a wider suspension from Held Motor sports.Try here for the rate of exchange.

    I could direct you to a web sight of used kit cars but I belive you would have to pay an Import fee for Canada unless it's in parts I suppose it could be worth the Canadian duety.

    taking a fully built car across the border would arise too many problems as i have looked into the possibility of this. the 282 and the testarossa kits are nice but shipping from the UK would hurt

    Of all the kits I have built, I found that the 308 and 328 are the easiest of the rebodys.The Artero and simular kits from Pisa are also fairly easy builds from what I have heard.The only Pisa body I have installed is there XTC, which I had fully mounted and aligned in a weekend.

    SERIOUS!! i love that one, looked complex from the pic they showed. would you be able to post pics of the finished product? it sounds like it came very well alligned, or maybe it only took that long because you have experience

    Try here: http://pages.ebay.com/ebaymotors/browse/Collector.html
    http://www.kitcars.com/
    E-Bay has a lot of junk so if it looks like junk it probubly is.The other link has kits in the U.S.A. and canada.You can get a trucking company from off of E-Bay if you need to.
