I think it's a great idea :smt012

If it was me I'd be building it around the Porsche 944 as I think it would be a cracking car to drive and a better setup with bigger engine options :smt003

yeh mate looked very good convincing in every way except inside that is :smt012 still a cracking idea, i wonder if maybe a covin could be done a similar way bond the external shell to a normal car, such as a porsche 911 :lmao :lmao :lmao :lmao :lmao :smt012 :smt017 :smt017

The guys who makes the kit updated the outside and made a more retro dash ..I like the idea that its just cosmetics to do than mainly engine/gearbox,brakes.its all done :smt012
i need to find the old vw mag i have of a sweedish guy that grafted on an oval bodyshell to a written off 911. he cut most of body away retaining all running gear.

Anything can be grafted together if your prepared to put the time in Danny. I think you could easily rebody a Covin using something like a Westfield or a Cobra chassis with a few modifications :smt012
