Cheers Dan! Really cool, any plans for more work on it? Must have been a nightmare to set up to extend the chassis in terms of geo etc?

The whole point really is to create a replica in short wheel base form so that "normal" Mr2 chassis can have the same look without cutting the car in half, i'd never sell any in full LWB form.

Wether it works in SWB form remains to be seen, but i figure it's better to try than not to bother, so we shall see how it ends up.

For me personally I think it would look better with a short wheelbase as the gap from the end of the cockpit to the spoiler looks a bit bare

I agree, also the only difference between a SWB and LWB kit would be the length of the sideskirts, the front and rear clams would be identical, so if someone wanted to build a LWB full replica they'd only have to extend sideskirts.
