    HOLY FUCKKKKKKK! So glad you're ok though, RIP to my favourite UK MX :( How salvage-able are the parts on the car? And fuck, the hardtop seems to have saved your life too, definitely wouldn't have been cool if it was soft top

    Yeah most of it is man. The new shell is white. None of them will be the same colour as the green though.

    Just finished reading this thread mint, was laughing most of the way through :) great build. Awesome car you got/had there lol, loved the style all the way through!

    Don't suppose you can point me in the right direction of the hardtop roof spoiler please?

    Hopefully see you on the track when my 5 is ready :p.

    Keep up the good work fella ;).
