Can't you have your bodies trade marked or copyrighted. Would be no different me taking a can of coke and putting my label on it and selling it.

At least the window masks of the Audi actually fit 100% and dont require trimming like the 3.1 does.

Default About copies...

I'm a fan of Protoform bodies and don't get this as a critic, but if i'm not wrong, the first Protoform Stratus, wich was a great body and made the brand worlwide famous, was a perfect copy of the very successfull Andy's Bodies Stratus (?!).

Copies aren't something new in the business...Am I correct ?
