    My 250 Testarossa Project

    You guys may be interested in this project I have had on the go in my garage for a while now. About 18 months ago I was given a Cobra rolling chassis which a friend had in his workshop collecting dust. I didn't particularly want to build a Cobra as you see a lot of them around here on the weekend and as there are quite a few they wont get a good resale value. Brought it home and just decided to get an engine and get the mechanicals right. But at that point no idea of what body to use.

    Well you have got a good start with that chassis, what engine are you going to use? Will you be making the body out of alloy or fiberglass? Andy

    I decided to go for a Lexus 4L motor as they are dirt cheap over here and a lot available. Cheaper to replace then repair.

    Good engines but how far have you got in 18 months? are you still going for the 250 Testarossa body? if so how will you get the body correct scale/pannel wise, not alot of 250 around, will you be using a wood or wire buck? and what material will the body be made off. Andy

    Looks like the dense foam used in building insulation (Kingspan type).
