              In the USA if you pay a company / person to start a plug, then it,s your plug and work ,it is not theirs to sell or trade !!

                    yes , i think so, i should get started in a couple of weeks, the bigest problem i see is the door hinges, do you have pictures of your door hinges? want to see what they look like

                      Hello Carspancho

                      I've kept the basic design of the original K1 hinges, but modded them where the door pivots.... One problem with the std car is the door wobble a lot. The std hinge has 2 surfaces that the pin goes through and it runs metal on metal.. I've made a trial one with 3 supports, that also runs with needle roller bearings and bronze bushes to control the side thrust.. It seems to work well, so i'll make some proper ones soon :-) The only thing is I had to do a little mod to the chassis screen support for clearance..

                      A couple of photo's for ya...

                            thanks for the pict Attackb i don't think this design is going to work on mine because i am building mine on 96 camaro so i made lots of modifications and i think the door is going to hit the ft end, may have to design my own and that is going to be a bit#% but will see thanks again

                              Argh, didn't realise that !!! Will be very interesting to see how that turns out !!! I look forward to seeing ur build.. I ve seen some photo s of a K1 kit on an MR2 before, and that looked quite good..

                              How are u like size wise on the Camaro, as the K1 is quite small !!!!
