Awesome work and Awesome ride. I can't wait to see the rims finally mounted and looks great in red with the dark rims. I hope to be able to buy a kit from you when you start producing them and again great job.

Once you start making replicas of any of the body parts, please please please let me know the prices cos I really want to do this too!

This is definitely the best RS replica I've ever seen. People just buy all their parts, but you sir have put so so much more effort and time into yours that it makes it the best!

Thanks for all the kind words guys, waiting for the weather to break here and the snow to melt away to get back out there working on it.

I have genuine front fenders now that I can fit, then mold....as well as some genuine RS sideskirts coming from the UK that I will be molding to address some issues with my previous set of sideskirt molds.

Going to try to have the fenders molded/done/painted for SIF'13 in central Ohio April 28th...

if I have time, I'm going to mold my customized RS wing and try to make a few to take with me for the swap meet.

If you're anywhere within a couple hour's drive from central ohio, feel free to come check it out in person at SIF!

Those sideskirts wouldn't fit a zx4 would they?

And also, did you ever make a mould for the grille??

They should. Zx3, zx4, zx5 and the wagon all share the same wheel base.

I will be willing to ship any and all pieces I make once I'm set up 100% and running full-swing. There's still a lot to do, and I also build custom vintage motorcycles on the side so I'm not certain when I'll have a complete kit available, I'll probably roll out parts one at a time.

they would "fit" but would have gaps from the body at the edge of the front fender and rear arch due to the difference from RS arches being wider...

not yet, But it's on my development list and I do have one here for molding purposes.

COOL! Do you have a current project? Vincent Black Shadow? BSA Victor Special? Dunstall Norton Commando? I'd love to see some pics.

I know...
