Has anyone used kitpartsdirect?
 
Has anyone used kitpartsdirect?

As well as all the rest of it they do a nice 26" wide nose cone that sounds like it will fit the roadsters wide chassis. And it's 85 which aint too bad.

Just want to see if anyone has used them before to make sure they're decent.

i,d suggest buying the nose from Triton race products, its made to measure & WILL fit, quality Grp that you,ll be hard pressed to find better. quality is worth the little bit more money ;)

As I understand it, Kit Parts Direct are Great British Sportscars. So the Nose cone is either off an old Robinhood style or the new Zero. Seems like an good price though.

I'm not knocking Triton, but whenever the issue of seats or bodywork is asked, it seems like the only answer this forum gives. Again we all know the quality is awesome, but a couple of alternatives won't do any harm..... plus its nice to see variations on the Haynes theme.

Hey,

Someone in this forum has done it, from memory I think his username is "SMUDGER", but im not sure.

I also thought about buying this nosecone from Kit parts dir. but I remember from that guy who has done that the nosecone needs to be further widened around 50mm more to make it fit properly to the haynes roadster.

Regards,
Dario:cool:

Nose cones
 
I have a Robin Hood one on my locost, never rearly been happy with it. When i build my roadster it will be Triton only.
Spend your money wisely and it will look much better and you will be happy.

thats a fair comment to make, its a buyers market, but also buyer beware etc, as i said, the triton nose will fit without modifying it, i suggested the Triton nose as thats what i have & am VERY pleased with it & happy to pass on to other builders my opinion of the product.

a suggestion.... hold a Triton nose cone up to the sun light, then do the same with another make of nose cone, you,ll see the difference a few ,s spent will be worthwhile. ;)
