Unfortunately they have removed their realistically priced Locost chassis plans from sale due to the high cost of public liability and professional indemnity. It seems that 3 years ago Vodou freely published as set of plans, for a Miata based build, however it looks like they are not around anymore.

I bought four meters of 2. After having some doubts, I decided to add the suspension attachment brackets.

Considering the daunting masking job inside the cabin to correct this, I will most likely leave the model this way.

Lcoost wanted to locsot some of the floppiness of the sheet metal, hence this thin gauge. As an example, a Lotus Seven has a torsional stiffness of around 1, Nm per degree.
