Which Kit for a new build

Afternoon guys..

I've just finished and IVA'd my Westfield S2000. I done pretty much everything I wanted to do during the build so garage time since has been limited and I'm getting withdrawl symptoms,

I think I'd like to build another car and wondered what peoples opinions were on which chassis/kit is currently value for money. Having been down the Westfield route I know the kit is decent and parts are available easily so this is an option.

I've owned a couple of MNR's before and had a couple of issues, Thinking back now it was probably more to do with the people who built them than the actual kit themselves, I can't help but wonder If i'd have better luck with a car I've built myself, Prior to the issues I had I always found Marc to be friendly and helpful and the current chassis looks great, I'm also a fan of the styling which I know can be hit or miss.

So does anyone have any opinions?

I too built an MK Indy (some years ago) and it went together very well. The finished car was good to drive as well. It's got to be worth a look.

Are you wanting a 7 alike?

AB would be my choice if budget allowed. I believe their 7 type body work will be available soon.

I keep thinking about building something and I like the idea of a rod . Seems there is no-one making much (in the UK at least) these days.

I put together An Arion before doing my Westfield. That 7 bodywork has been a long time coming. Still eager to see it.

I'm not keen on the MKs.

I'm leanimg towards another Westfield at the minute.

Ah yes. I think that is probably a bit too complete for me

What are you wanting to do? Apart from the riveted floors, brake lines, cut side panels and fabbed engine mounts, Everything else is as it comes from raw and just loosely bolted together. Plenty of hours left to build, hence why i havent touched it in 4 yrs!
