Locust ES

This classic 'Seven' style Sprinter is 12 feet of potent power and sheer enjoyment. 
With the equivalent of @ 130BHP/ton from even a modest X-Flow, the Locust provides the maximum enjoyment per . 
Designed in the early '80s the ES version is the original Ford Escort MkII based vehicle,
Its body tub is traditionally cut from 3 sheets of 18mm exterior plywood and glued & screwed together with battens to reinforce the simple butt joints.
The finished body tub is then skinned by sticking on light gauge aluminium to totally weatherproof it and provide a smooth exterior surface for the spray finish
Alternatively the aluminium can be polished.
The budget Ford Cortina 3/4/5 donor front suspension can be replaced with a custom (even chromed if you want) dual wishbone/coil-over set up. 
The bonnet is made from aluminium (instructions included in the Build Manual) or available  pre-formed from White Rose Vehicles.
