Default Bodywork

I'm looking to start a build, and was looking for a bit of info..
Where would the best place to get a ready built chassis, is it worth buying second hand or brand new ? and where would be the best place to get the bodywork, I'm leaning towards fibreglass over ally.
Thanks for the help in advance ;-)

Welcome to the mad house.
Go with a new chassis, at least you will know that it's been welded up square.
Talon on the forum is probably the best one for a chassis. http://talonmotorfabrication.co.uk/

Hi Vmax on this forum supplies body kits, but I'm not sure what is the situation now, as it looks he has had issues with his moulds lately, but it is worth a call or a pm.
Otherwise, Equinox makes a very good quality body kit, that the one I have on my car, and I have been very pleased with it. http://equinoxproducts.co.uk/product...ynes/roadster/

Hi i am not accepting orders at the moment but once the current situation is resolved i will be making parts to sellonce they're ready to ship

As already said equinox is good quality and he has much better turnaround times than i can achieve

Mine is an equinox seconds and I can't see why it is a seconds. It fits really well and has a couple of chips on the edges - but I may have caused them in storage - I second what Voucht said
