The styling on it could use some work in my opinion but I like the concept and have seriously considered building one like that using the Kia reo that I have laying around.

Step 8 is build the build table, Step 10 is take first test drive. Step 9 seems somewhat abbreviated, doesn't it? But I like the thoroughness of making the body pattern.

Not much different than the 1.5 pages of fiberglass instruction in 'The Book'!

Neato!

Overall, I'm pretty impressed with what he's been able to accomplish so far. Thanks for the link Hempy! :cheers:

Yeah, I was considering writing something along the lines of "He tells you how to make chassis and driveline, like Ron Champion tells you how to make a nose."

Yeah, me too--the body bit is quite interesting and informative. The rest of the car is like an ancient Steve Marin routine titled How To Get a Million Dollars and Pay No Taxes that started with "First, get a million dollars..." But until I submit an Instructible of my own, I've no right to poke fun at the efforts of others and I'll stop now.
