Oh yes, believe me I know how much that replica stuff costs. I spent well over a year just doing research to find out what parts are needed and where to get everything. I even had a doner car all lined up and ready to buy in Michigan... but reality set in at the last second and saved me from myself. I will definately be happier knowing I can at least build my own mini replica now

I like it. The early season dash is my favorite (the one with two monitors)

Projectkitt, can you post some pics of your prototype build? I am interested in watching your progress. So glad you have taken on this design.

Sure

I try not to waste card stock on prototypes so I printed it on regular computer paper; that's why it looks a little flimsy. Thicker paper will take care of that. When I get this one done I might try having it printed on 80lb gloss cover instead of 110lb card stock. I'm curious to see how well that would work for papercraft...

Anyway, attached is what I've got together so far:
