I bought their kit in 2010 and despite having disputes with the owners, I was sad to see they weren't making at anymore as it was actually a very good kit. It was also less than half the price of the Extreme kit

Hi Gents, after selling my F355 replica a couple of years ago I want to build another one. Not kidding when I say that I think about it like a lost lover. Unfortunately money is an issue. Where can I get a dirt cheap 355 kit - doesn't have to be Extreme, doesn't even have to be that good as I can repair it myself

The 3sgte engine is one of Toyota's best. In my 355 all I did was get a bigger turbo and dump valve and used an aftermarket ECU. The power was very good - never got it rated though, but you could really feel it. What I do remember though was that on spacers the car was very awkward to drive without the mods - but with the extra power it was actually dangerous

In all honesty I would do another 355. I really loved my 355. I was practical (as it is a Toyota) and very beautiful. I sold it under duress, was not nearly done enjoying it

I made one myself out of aluminium.  Here is what I used

  - 5 threaded rods (M10), about 22cm
  - a hollow rod that fitted loosely around the threaded rods, which  I cut into 20pieces about 5 cm each,
  - 3 aluminum strips about 5cm long and as wide as I needed the grill to be.

I first drilled 5 equidistant holes in the middle of the strips, then ran threaded rods using the small hollows as spacers. I then used a grinder carefully following the shape of the car, just concentrating on one side of the car first, and only shaving off the top and bottom strip. I used a dremel to get it exactly right, on just one half.

This is important because the curvature of the grill has to contour with the body so each strip is not the same.

The I took the whole thing apart again and traced the curved part of half of each strip on a piece of paper and used it as a template to shape the second half. Then I took the two shaped pieces (top and bottom strips) and just made the middle strip go halfway.

It was an interesting exercise but I can honestly say that the result was better than a 355 grille.

I have never seen a finished 430. Was hoping your buyer would find themselves over here

I think wraps are now crass but once in a while you find a really good one. Wraps are best when you want a design but for solid colours, paint is the best way to go. Your quotes for paint are hellishly expensive. I am not in the UK (most expensive complete respray I have heard of here here was for about GBP3000 for a Black Series Merc) but on this forum I think I have seen people quoting much smaller numbers. It is still worth doing the best prep work you can do though - you will always save something.

I have a pic where it is in the background. Will ask for permission to post. In the meantime I was examining the 488 and looking at it it seems the Mk2 MR2 might be a very good base for a replica
