Recommend a MX5 based project.

I've had a 2004 MX5 (Mk 2.5) sitting on my drive for a couple of years and the wife has given me the ultimatum....do something with it or get rid.

I know it needs at least one side front chassis rail replacing, some floor and sill work and that's before I get it in the air so probably much more than that.

Can you guys recommend any kit projects that I can use the car for, don't really want to scrap it.
I've read an article on the MK RX5 thats got me thinking about another kit car.....
Thanks
Ian

The MeV Replicar? Have only seen photos, and from some angles it doesnít look as great as others, but if I was in your position Iíd be looking into it...

Iíve been in the MK RX-5 and itís a smooth ride. A really nice car using LOADS of bits from the Mazda. Itís basically an MX-5 with a decent chassis. Have you seen the list of donor parts?
