A new section specifically for the growing number of rebodied Zed's joining (as requested by @jaguartvr).

I'll be moving the existing threads in to this section as I locate them, and all newly posted threads will show a blue Rebody tag to make them easier for people to visually filter.

For Members who aren't sure of the difference between a rebody and a kit car.
A kit car is generally scratch built, this means you have to go through an IVA test which is hard to pass and expensive.
A rebody is a donor car that has had its bolt-on panels removed and replaced with new body panels. You can only remove parts that were designed to be removed, if you cut sections away then it will have to go through an IVA test. The beauty of a rebody is that all it needs are some before, during and after pictures along with a form sent to the DVLA, it is that simple and costs nothing.

Obviously, on this forum we are only interested in Zeds so please don't post about other makes unless it has a bearing on helping rebody a Zed.

I intend to add a list with pictures showing what you can build and where you can buy it. Some are harder than others to source but you can always drop me a PM and I can help.

Great idea Steve.

I love the Z07 always fancied one of the originals, when are they due out?

My Blue one is a Classic Coachworks Isabella if you want to insert a pic.

Cheers Gaz,

We are a funny bunch out left field but, I believe, do have something to add to this community.

We all like our motors after all 😀

Z07 was just having the final details sorted before the mold is taken. Just time for you to finish your current project.
I told you that you would build another, the building is the fun part!
