Ah yes, I was watching this on Ebay. There was also a thread about it on 16VMC, a couple of people said it needed a lot of work, and that the advert was a bit misleading in what you could do with it. Personally I thought it looked like a great base and a very interested project. Good luck to ya.

Doesn't look like a minus at all to me. Looks like a fibreglass shell made for just that purpose. Doesn't look like it's been cut out from a minus shell? Plus it looks quite new :-

Anyhoo looks like a very good start for something that will be a lot of fun!!! :rolleyes:

You planning on trying to make this road legal? Will be interested to see how all the SVA goes.
