Looks fantastic!
Regarding the body, you may find some answers/inspiration at the scratch builder section at Clubcobra. I know at least one guy (nickname G_Pete) who did a 289 Fia :)
Kind regards, Ronald

Tapped.
Shut up. :lol:

Sam.
Hang on, This lot is expensive enough as it is. I can't afford LeMans body bucks just yet. I'll have to see if there is the demand. :shock: :D

Nic.
I can't see why not, if fitted with the period correct bits and bobs. :wink:

Monster.
I've pretty much got that sorted now. But more info and ideas never go amiss. I'll take a look. Thanks. :)

Well, some of the laser cut parts have arrived. So I thought I would start gluing them together, while building the jig on the flip side of the 427 jig.

Looks even better today. I've swept up. :lol: :lol:

Anyway.... a group question now.
If I'm going to do an FIA, then which one should I replicate?
I believe you have 5 to choose from. (Serious question).

Alan; I think Dave means which original FIA spec car, but I could be wrong - it's been known!

Yup Lee.
There were 5 original FIA cars.
There were differences between all of them.
I'm trying to gauge which one is best liked before I go and get the body buck produced. :D
