There are all sorts of examples of situations where paying more doesn't get you anything extra, and in many cases may even be less. Equally there are examples where paying more does get you something extra.

The quality or value of any products or sevices CANNOT be assessed by checking the price, but that's exactly what that saying suggests, it suggests that if you pay more you get more, and although that is often true it is not always true.

Let's take the examples we have already seen on this thread, now, anybody who uses that saying is going to suppose that the more expensive chassis it the better one. I reckon that they, and that saying, will both be wrong.

You haven't been able to find us because the shop's currently in 'holiday' mode, which means the listings are removed for that period. I don't plan to put anything back on until we clear the back-log of orders we have for bodywork (and amongst other things we need to sort out the bodywork on a Lancia Stratos replica rally car, and finish the build of a Cobra kit-car that's going to run on hydrogen fuel).

The ebay shop can be found here: http://stores.shop.ebay.co.uk/Clyde-...__W0QQ_armrsZ1

Once it's back online it'll carry bodywork, chassis, and suspension items for the Haynes Roadster and Locost, as will our web-site store.

Our web-site is www.clydeautomarine.co.uk

We do offer a roll-hoop, yes.

The two chassis that are displayed were for a customer order for 2 kits, consisting of all suspension wishbones, floor, 6-piece bodywork, roll-hoop, chassis, and all the bushes and inserts for the 'bones, plus the nuts and bolts to hold them on.

As I said, all of this will appear soon on both our EBay store and our web-site.

Our prices reflect the quality of the items we sell and ensure it's worth our while doing it.

i do wish Clydeautomarine the very best of success in the Roadster "world",
& that is said sincerely.
