Copy anything mate. Mind is.actually quite 'raw' inperson. I like the fact it appears more 'original' used finish.. Not a perfect finish. I really think that's what these things are about but thats just me.

My best advise would be make it unique but you as much as possible. I went KAR 120 but made it my version I hope.

Cheers
Stot

Stot - sorry to jump you back in time - but can you provide any info about how you went about trimming and securing your Equinox bodywork? I'm having similar fitting problems to Voucht - so am going to pinch trimming solutions from him - but wondered what fixings you used/what spacings between them for side panels, scuttle and nosecone?

Sorry to jump in here but I assume the side panels are what you are having an issue with - on mine they were ground a little to fit (very tight indeed) and then I used one of those polywotsit glues like Tiger seal or Sikaflex to glue them into place. In order to hold them in place I use a few pop rivets but none where they would show after the car was on the road. Impossible to get off and they haven't moved after over a year on the road

Instead of Tiger Seal I used this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Black-Bond-...XAWAP1TTGYR06X which (having used this and Tiger Seal) works just as effectively and sticks like s**t to a blanket and, is cheaper, 4 for 15.

No need to apologise - it's what the forum is for! Bascially yes - I don't know how many rivets to use or where to place them -or even if I can just use Sikaflex, clamp it all in place for a week and then it won't go anywhere. So i'm looking for as many example of what others have done.

Trouble is - one mans 'oh, not many rivets' is another mans "I 'only' put a rivet every 75mm"!!!!!

Ok - I used no rivets in the cockpit area at all just clamps, under the scuttle to the very front of the car I spaced pop rivets about every 6" but these are hidden by draught excluder (from Lidl) which stops the bonnet chattering. The underside of the car has rivets at about 8" spacing and is not visible unless you can get underneath. HTH
I should add that all the metal surfaces were given a coat of polywotsit even the triangulation pieces + no vibration noises
