There is quite a gap between 016 and 017 - does anyone know of a Roadster finished between Nov 2010 and August 2011?
Mine was finished between that period, but I don't really know if it qualifies with the V6 and other changes I made to the Haynes chassis.
If it doesn't I quite understand.

Certainly a fair statement that I do agree with for sure.
Never hurts to inquire.

I could let you have half a plaque? ;-)

To be honest, I would have to take a view from others as to how near to a Haynes Roadster it is - perhaps you could have a vote?

I my opinion the large part of the car is Haynes roadster ok the front wish bones uprights etc are different.

but the main change is the fact he is using a live rear axle .

does that really make it a locost ?

if you want to be true to Haynes then any variation from the book could be called something else eg mx donor etc etc

My vote would be a Haynes.

I don't wish to really put the members into position of voting or not and perhaps in hindsight I probably shouldn't have asked, because deep down I have mixed feelings my self.
The car clearly started out as a Haynes build in overall dimensions and still is.
Your body panels will fit my car.
My nosecone is a Haynes nosecone.
My lower A arms are made from the same jig as as in the Haynes book size wise, design wise I have changed them to suit what I had to work with.
Scuttle dimensionally is correct, windshield is correct.
But from that point on I deviated because to be honest there are no donor cars anywhere in my area and also the Mercur XR4Ti is so rare here it has become its own collector car, aka not cheap.
So in someways I feel somewhat attached to Haynes, but let's face it, can we say black sheep of the Haynes family.
So as I am more than happy to just be part of the forum group, I don't always post often, but I do visit and read what others are doing.

So if it is ok with you all, we can just forget my original comments they are not really relevant to the original Haynes concept.
In the end it is being part of this group that really counts.

So, to me it is a Haynes Roadster, whatever is inside.
Just my opinion
