Whos going to be first to make a cobra starting from this?! I guess you're supposed to slap it ontop of a home made chassis? :confused:

who on earth would anyone buy that?
It looks like he's splashed it off something else (MkI/II Sumo?) , as the grp mat/gelcoat is the wrong way up??

ha, funny you mention that....

I did wonder if this was in fact a certain members prototype and was having to be sold. I put it down to further discussions with industry leading experts resulting in agreement that a Saturn V rocket engine would in fact be the power unit of choice. Thus this prototype was not advanced enough and an upgraded composite carbon krypton aviation spec kevlar bonded honeycomb sandwich would in fact be needed. :razz:

If the identity cannot be used in the UK as a total loss it must be a Cat B so parts car only and only sold to registered scrap dealers.
As Chris says,another ringer. Take it abroad, register car and then bring it back when repaired, simple.

Not sure why you think this :confused: :confused: this is the way my tub has been made. You want the sealed side exposed to the elements with the raw glass side covered in carpet.

OK, I'll bow to your greater knowledge.
Never had a car with a plastic floor, so what do I know!

Floors are steel but the inside of the tunnel is exposed.
