Same goes for the single bolts, could do an surcharge/ part-ex on a standard subframe so it would be cheaper for you.

Probably could, would have to see nearer the time what im putting it in, as you're 4 hours away and it'd have to be a courier job.

Before you sell any its probably worth looking into insurance etc
It would be nice to see another frame available though.

Add me as a very interested party. Really like the idea of getting all the bits including drive shafts from one point of contact.

another interested. For me the problem are the drive shafts. if you make the drive shafts and sell like a convertion kit, you will sell a lot of kits.

Thankyou all for all you support and interest so far :)

I'd be very interested too. I've been considering shipping a kit from Trinidad. If I could get a frame, shafts, alternator mount and a servo relocation bracket over here I'd pay over £500.00. Ideally I'd want it to be an install with no body mods at all, using the full injection system and I think the Micra setup at the moment is the closest to that. I might still go Suzuki Swift though, the power from the Swift GTi is good and the oil filter is just in the wrong place on the Micra engine!

As i said the only body mod is a half moon dent in the bulkhead for the injection system. I will look into servo relocation as i ran no servo in mine, lol.
