What does a shipped-to-the-USA mtec2 kit usually run? $1500?

Mmirror..... thats what the 4dr one I just sold is going to run. If you can find them in the states they go for that much also. If not a hair more.

Tony... you don't wanna pay for them. Trust me on that one..... shit if I could find anything from an mtech II that wasn't expensive I'd snatch it up..... I tried parting a kit together last week.... it cost just about what I sold this kit for at my price..... then I'd have to add some to it to make it worth while.

You may be right. Davelength's car is my admitted inspiration. I just pictured the car with the mtech 2 kit and it seemed to fit in my head. But, I can just as easily rock the plastics with the rear skirt fitted from a coupe. The car looks amazing as is, why mess with it, I guess?

Dave - I'd love to see pics, to help me see where you're coming from Rob S's car is beautiful, albeit a lighter blue.

Mtech 1 doesn't jive with me on a drop top. That euro bumpered montrealblau with blue top in the wheels post does look good though...

Nothing wrong with a good fitting replica kit. I sold my original and kept the replica because it was a waste of money putting something on the car that would have looked the same.



Had a look over the kit and i cant find a manufacturers name on it, thought it might have had something somewhere Sorry i cant help, but dont listen to those guys, my kit has fooled many people both online and in person. They can look just as good as the real thing

Holy crap - that's not a real kit? No idea who made it? Is it fiberglass?

I've got an awesome body guy - he's a perfectionist, and he's done some insane work. I'd trust him with even a low quality kit - he'd make it look amazing.

You should see it in person . . .

Actually, except for his mirrors, it isn't too bad.

(FREE PREVIEW: Heeters next post will be about how he doesn't care about its appearance.)

fuck, that was good. First I read the Heeter preview, and start laughing. Then I scroll down and see your new sig - which just made things worse

Teddy bear racing...glad I'm taking that cabbie out of danger

PS - what about the mirrors?

No it is a replica and yes it is fibreglass.

As for, in person? heh, yeah, it looks just as good in person as it does in the photos I had all the original trim pieces and compared them to the shape of the bits on there (mainly the door pieces i was concerned about) and they arent any different. The proof is in the ability to fool people into thinking (until they look over it again) 1) it is a series II car, and 2) it is a real kit.



To be a perfectionist the only piece iam going to adjust is the door panel isnt quite level at the front. Needs to be dropped down a tiny bit to have it line up properly with the guard panel.

People always love this shot so im going to post it for the hell of it



Besides, what the hell is wrong with my mirrors! colour coded looks great on this car

Edit: More pics that show how well it has been constructed / fitted.

More pics, more pics! I want some closeups - and why isn't the front bumper on??

PS - Dave, those are stock painted mirrors. What's the deal?

They are nearly Pepto-Bismol pink. That's the deal.

I'm color blind (seriously) and they look silver to me. If they are indeed pink, then that's funny
