Default AGM Sports Cars Body Kit

Hi guys

Found this website/supplier today while looking about for various parts
http://www.agmsportscars.co.uk/agm_s...cars_2_016.htm

Has anyone used 1 of their kits for either the roadster or the original Ron Champion Locost?

If so whats the quality of the product/service like?

Cheers Martin

Service is good, I was impressed with the finish on the parts.
I'm doing battle with the side panels at the minute.
The pictures don't do the kit justice, it will look ace when finished.

I've used a Saturn/NTS nose cone and scuttle to use for engine and radiator clearance during my build. Anyone know if the AGM body kit is close in height dimensions to the Saturn stuff or can someone take some measurements for me?

Build cost.... seems to be spending more on tools than car bits at the moment! (they will be handy in the future though).

I am probably going to go for their set as well as I like the way the edges have returns etc. They are also within easy travelling distance for me whereas equinox are a bit far away
