 JC Sports Cars enable clients to re-body a donor car with plans, instruction manuals, and templates The car can be hand built, with ordinary DIY skills and commonly available materials with a few specially made parts if required.

 No exotic equipment or special tools required.

Just a donor car and the kind of tools you'd find in most DIY garages.

 The model currently available is the JC Midge Roadster which, based on a Suzuki SJ retains that identity.

 The power train and running gear, i.e. engine, gearbox, axles brakes and steering generally come from the one donor, as does wiring, instrumentation and controls. As a result the vehicle can be classified as 're-bodied', being largely the original vehicle.
