    Well it depends, we have the Ariel Atom workshop down here in somerset in Kent, UK. They do all the work by hand, and the welding etc. using TIG welding methods and just use quality branded components. If I can find some good mechanics in pakistan, I think they will do JUST AS good a job as the guys in the UK, in some cases better. I have CAD drawings as posted in my other thread, and would just purchase the quality parts. Make sure the roll bar is strong and the wishbones (very important) as well as the uprights. Make sure you use the right steel especially for the wishbones and don't go without a helmet on these cars. I really want to get my Atom made in pakistan.

    well working on a similar project since quiet a time.

    frist things first, finding professionals is very difficult here, at least you wont find them in automobile industry...

    after realizing this i decided that my project will be a complete DIY, hence its taking very long.

    you wont find any branded stuff (tools, materials) over her.....

    but its doable, and to do it it right, you need a lot of research, learning everything..

    shoot me an email if you are seriously interested and i will love to share anything i know

    cheers
    its all about power to weight ratio...
