Kit car build manuals

 

 

Kit Car Links is a directory of links to kit car websites worldwide.

Welcome to Kit Car Links

 

Kit car build manuals section

 

Check out this fascinating section here at Kit Car Links.

One of the best ways to understand what a kit car construction project involves is to read build manuals.

Kit Car Links now has a dedicated section with links to kit car build manuals and assembly guides.

Once upon a time manufacturers would only supply a build manual with a purchased kit, or for a fee. Some didn't provide much in the way of instructions at all.

Now with easy-to-access pdf. files many have chosen to upload their entire build guides to the internet - where anyone can download them for free.

These include manufacturers in the UK such as Caterham, Replicar and Suffolk Sportscars.

Also online are manuals from USA manufacturers such as Factory Five Racing, Smyth Kit Cars and Super Stepside Pickup.

A number of build manuals for historic kit cars no longer in production have also been posted online.

Have a look at the Kit Car Links build manuals section today.

Club pages - well worth a visit

 

Most visitors to Kit Car Links spend the majority of their time looking through the pages for manufacturers' websites.

But another helpful category is the section for kit car clubs.

Kit Car Links has details of websites from kit car clubs all over the world.

These are a wonderful resource with information about the cars their members drive and many are packed with items about:

  • history of marques
  • club activities
  • meetings
  • technical tips
  • classifieds
  • build guides
  • club tours

New Kit Car Local Resource Sections Throughout the USA!

If you, like many other kit car owners, have found it hard to find spare parts or the correct size of windshield and auto glass for your car, you are not alone! The majority of auto repair, auto glass and window tint shops don't cater to vehicle models that are outside of typical modern makes and models. We understand this and for 2022, we're going to start displaying local shops who are familiar with replacing windshields, applying window tinting on kit cars as well as repair work using the right parts. We've decided to start in the great state of Arizona - check out these local auto repair businesses below:
