Hi all,

Here is a rough concept of a ' full ' body kit. Still a work in progress.

larger fuel tank
a trunk
radiators in the side scoops
additional steel frame for side impact / more storage

let me know what you think, thanks

It’s my personal preferance, but I would like the front suspension enclosed rather than exposed and the body built without the lines/separation between the Center section and the side pods. It would also be good to correct the windshield to roll bar distance to help eliminate turbulence in the cockpit. My thoughts, Bill

I have always been interested in a full body setup, so keep it up. I love the general styling. But I think the roll bar is to low to be practical,, put a driver in there.

Keep up the good work

The problem I see is at the other end; getting people to send $4-5000. That, and how everyone's car is a slightly different size.
