    They sound pretty good enough reasons to me!

    But yes, when it's gone they're gone. Moving over to mk4 Golf donor from now on, but the LWB version is a good while off yet.

    Although there's been...

    The V6 was a one off. It had a brief outing at Autosport in January this year. It looked awful! Covered in dust, wrongly adjusted rear shocks and somehow the upper wishbones had become kinked. It...
  3. Last of the TF based chassis, mk 2 shell ad donor parts

    Again, as above. The last Tf based chassis, brand new subframe (£300 on it's own), a mk 2 shell trimmed to fit the chassis and a job lot of engine, gearbox and running gear (might be the odd bit...
  4. Avante mk2 moulds free to good home! (...and buyer collects).

    As above, pretty much. I'm hanging onto the shell that came with the moulds, but they are somewhat in the way now. I'd rather they went to someone on the forum.

    If I can get the purple buggy to Stones you're welcome to try it out, not that you seem to need much extra motivation at the moment!

    Many thanks to Alex and Mick for their patience and development work. Hopefully the production and supply situation will improve once Kingfisher Kustoms get fully involved with the project.

    Also, its really interesting that you fitted the subframe with M14 bolts on each side - Mick had a real job getting everything to line up with M12 bolts. This fits with my own 'research' that there...

    Hi Alex, glad to see you're making progress and many thanks for the photos. They will be a big help in the future.

    Thanks a lot Dirk. To be honest I doubt I'll be trying to use them anytime soon, but you're very welcome to a dash. I was more interested in the Mk1 body and screen - however I look at it I struggle...

    Selling the Green MEV/Nova

    Hi everyone. I'm having a bit of a rationalisation programme, and a reality check. It's finally dawned on me that the MEV/Nova ( as featured in Complete Kitcar) is unlikely to happen anytime soon,...

    That looks very promising Mick. It might be worth the long trek to Castle Coombe to see your progress.

    Are they the Rover 45 based one (the ZS) or 75 (ZT)? The former uses a version of the MGF PG1 gearbox, but with different drive shafts. I could really do with some of these drive shafts! The ZT uses...

    Thank you! Yes, the Alfa V6 would be marvellous, but as you say Lauren, the Audi lump gives a much needed VAG connection. Sadly, the K series engine is a stumbling block for the uninitiated and/or VW...

    Hi Mick, I believe the MGF and later MPi minis have the same steering wheel splines - quite a lot of custom minis use the MGF wheel and seats.

    Hang onto the MGF wheel for IVA though. The Astrali...
