I think what he has 'tried' to do is raise the nose bonnet and scuttle up to clear the engine, which would make some sense but why not use full lengths instead?

Does this need doing? I have the 1.6 engine and box from a Mk1 Mx5 to fit in.

I have seen the Vodou body work about 2 years+ ago and can say now it will be a very tight fit. I'm not sure that Matt ever got round to offering an engine to the chassis with the bonnet in place, I'd be very surprised if there was more than maybe 1 or 2 pulls from the moulds. You have a few options but both the bonnet and the sump will need cutting to make it fit.

Thanks for the input Phil. I will have to look into the options to arrive at the best solution.

If you wrap img tags around the URL (that's [IMG] before and [\IMG] after the URL of your photobucket link), it'll embed the pics for you in the post.

Out of interest, what happened to the Vodou moulds etc, does anyone know?

As far as the moulds go I can't help any further with as I really don't know what happened to Matt and Vodou after I delivered the chassis, it seemed to be moving on then just sort of went quiet after 2 months no phone calls,emails or forum posts.
You could try contacting Mark formerly of Triton as he advised Matt on the processes of making GRP parts but I think contact between them died off too after a while.
