I like that - but it will take some radical thinking to make an appropriate front end. Keep us posted

I like the back but would worry on the view from directly behind. I played with a similar idea but more curved and it looked very big buttish. Those tail lites may have solved the issue though. Good work.

Yeah it is Lamborghini Murcielago for the basic idea for the back , did some sketching for the front but didn't finish it have some doubts to integrate headlights in the bonnet/nose or to find some sexy lights like on choppers or naked bikes ...

thx for positive replay

p.s. Payed some dinner so SVA is passed

Love the drivers seat! Are you selling those?

Seriously. The only thing I'd add at this point is a comment from the last photo in the previous post. The drivers arm looks a little cramped, that's why the original has the bodywork following the curved tube that is at the top of the chassis. Elbow room. This might just be a trick of the photo and not a problem with a wider than stock chassis.

The whole thing looks good though, good progress.

the problem with elbow room isn't there if U'r siting normally , but it will be a slight crunchy because I will make seat with bigger angel so the roll bar do not cross 1meter or 40inches or as close I can get ... but this is the book chassis so there is lack of space any way


if there are customers for it , I will sell the fiber shell

Good effort!

I have to ask - do you have an oil painting hanging on one side of your courtyard (with graffiti on the other) or do you need burgular bars inside your garage?

Cheers
