Hi all, just starting to get parts together for a new build. Can anyone tell me if handyandy or anybody else is producing a flat pack kit for the roadster using an mx5 donor ?
Iím stripping the car now and would like to use as many of its parts as possible
Many thanks in advance

No one does a flat pack (or a chassis) any more now that Talon has stopped trading.

Andy hasn't done flat packs for at least 5/6 years...

So if building the chassis from scratch is the only option, are there plans available for a Mazda MX5 with extra width (like the McSorley 442e but specifically for the Mazda irs) not that I’m big I’d prefer more room in the cockpit (better seat options)

You could try Martin Batho at http://bathoscars.simpl.com/shop.html He does a lot of parts for the Haynes Roadster and may well do what you want.
Speaking from experience his products are excellent
