Thanks rob just what i needed,i like it a bit too much although it has lifted my enthusiasm which has been shrinking at an alarming rate recently.

I may need to sort another engine before i start messing with body changes though,i'll wait and see how some of these turn out first.

Yes it does fit the original Indy
They supply the extra metalwork(outrigger type thingys) as well as the bodywork

When mine is fully fecked I think I may see what has developed
They also had a hard top for it, and it takes an MG windcreen aparently

I was told last sunday that it will fit the older indy,the body would come with outriggers to fit between the original chassis and the new bodywork.

Mrs commented on how she quite liked it before even spotting it was tha MK stand and even better ...plonked on top of an indy....so /kind of/ already have approval from the mrs
(thats the way I read it anyway

Still same space internally though due to using the indy chassis and you would have to sort out the gaps etc if you were wanting to drive in damp/wet conditions...extending the floor and sheeting the inner arches would cure that though and give nice big storage pods in each side

Yes! I really like that.
About 1600 according to Phil - "that'll drop straight on your chassis". (Mine is 2003.)

I'd like to see someone make a Morgan Aero max body to fit an mk indy chassis. Have they missed a trick?

I do like it, but if i where to have a body change it would have to be something like a Radical/ LeMan style shell.

Is it just me who thinks that is dreadful?

A poor Austin Healey replica body with terribly designed arch extensions.What were they thinking? It reminds me of all of those obscure 80's kit cars whose makers went bust the moment their creations saw the light of day.

Just my opinion of course.

Maybe its just me but does anyone think the front and back ends look like they were designed for 2 different cars when viewed from the side.

Stu, the possibillity of a custom made hard top to fit. I try and run my car all year and this could be the answer for me.

Absolutely! I love the Fulcrum from RAW which I understand sits on the Striker Chassis. I'm afraid the HRS is not my cup of tea but I love the idea of interchangable shells!

Definately the way to go and gives the Manufacturer a lot of affordable options for sales. If its good enough for the big Manufacturers its good enough for the Kit boys. Look how many cars use the Golf Floorpan!
