    Model a roadster (kit car based)

    A while ago after selling my evo i bought a robin hood kit car for a bit of summer fun. I was lucky enough to find one local to me with a decent burton 2.1 cam'd pinto in it. The robin hood 2b is the old style kit and pretty cheap to find, it also uses a sierra for a doner car so has a decent rear end, well spaced pedal box, and enough room for someone over 6ft. The plan is to convert it to a 28 roadster style look. I stripped all the old panels off and sold them along with a load of other bits i wont need which funded the purchase of a 28 roadster body, bonnet, and 32 grill.
    I'll get some pics on soon, and update progress as it goes..........

    There's an Austin 7 rod on ebay at the moment that's built on a kit car chassis. Can't post a link to ebay on works computer but it looks tremendous in my opinion.
    Good plan. All the handling and braking, etc. has already been thought out for you.

    Not with the amount of modding required to the spaceframe style chassis on a rh2b

    I have seen a few kit based but they always end up with a long bonnet, i'm keeping the grill back with the front wheels and a standard length bonnet, essentially firewall in the right place
