Looks the part.

But you need to lower it 2 inches!

What engine are you running?

Seen you about a few times. Thought you have sold the car? A mate has a 200 kit also with a cossie 4 pot in the rear, but its 2wd 400+bhp

Phew!!!  I was worried it was going to be a Meastro  based Banham.


Is there a reason they have to sit high?  Looks like it should be pounding down the gravel through kielder with flames on the overrun

Is it a clever re-skin or a full body and chassis?

cut off everything from above the sills and the base of the screen, weld in a full rollcage and then bond on the 200 panels.



It was a Banham made set of panels (he had the original moulds) but I did not want a Maestro based car so I measured other cars to see what I could base it on and either celica or scooby would have done but the scooby would not sound right.

The original 200s sit just as high, it does have coilovers all round and could be lowered but did not want to run the drive shafts at larger angles.

I did sell this to fund a new build - TVR S1 with 24v cossy which is the reason for joining this forum

Not seen a TVR S1 for years, they seemed to fall of the planet in the early 90's.
