I would imagine it would have to be a 3 door to get the right length.

Not many mustangs in the uk though. That's a good price for it as well.

If the weather is good I'll be doing some work this weekend. I'll try and take some photos and measure it. The ride on my v6 is very hard and it never bottoms out though.

Here's my door gap and it turned out just fine:-

The kit itself is fantastic. There is a bit more work needed than the DVD makes out but it's not too bad. There are certainly easier builds out there but they just don't have the right look. In terms of performance I think the v6 is quick enough. If you start spending money on an engine swap to an Audi v8 or v10 then you may find yourself getting near the price of a real 360 unless you do absolutely everything yourself. I'm not sure if you can see build diaries but I'm more than happy with the end result:-

If I could change one thing with the car it would be for softer suspension as the lowering kit used makes for a harsh ride.

See how the curve of the kit follows the curve of the top of the engine. There isn't much of a gap between the bonnet section at all. In fact, to get it to fit you need to remove and bin the engine cover from the pug and cut down the Cambelt cover.

Unfortunately extreme have a bad habit of being very helpful and responsive up until the point when you part with your money. They still have a long way to go with aftersales service although there are ways round this. If you order a kit don't pay full price until you have checked absolutely every item is there when you pick it up. You'll go mad trying to chase parts from them later.

If they build it for you make payments in stages when they can prove to you they have done the work. Maybe even include a completion date with a penalty clause for going over.

Finally, I'm no mechanic but I think a supercharger would either be impossible or very expensive. There is virtually no room under the bonnet when the kit is on so a big addition like a supercharger probably won't fit.

I have the same problem on both my iPhone and Pc. It also sometimes happens over on the DNA forum.

Works out at around £40k which for a one off million pound supercar replica isn't too over the top. Murci replicas have been going for £30k finished over here and they aren't as rare as this.

I would imagine that if designed properly aluminium would be fine but I'd want a professional to design it for me.

That is an insanely low price. The door cards just need cutting down and fit straight on and if you follow my guide the windows aren't too bad!

With enough money and skill you can do whatever you want. Your question is a bit vague but as long as the chassis will fit under a 430 body shell it just depends on how skilled you are at building a custom chassis and then fitting everything together.
