How do you know it is a Hi Tech ?

Suspension wise, contact Kirkham Motorsports

As for assembly manual, I'm sure someone will have one here.

427 emblems could have been bought from Hi Tech, but that does not make it an actual Hi Tech. Are there any numbers stamped into the frame around the front upper cross member?

Any pictures of the frame and body?

I own a Hi-Tech Motorsport Cobra. An assembly manual didn't exist when I purchased my car, and I doubt one was published.

Look on top of the passenger side coil-over mount for a stamped HTM chassis number. Another location for the stamped chassis number is on the driver door upright tube near the hinge.

Am I stating the obvious, that a Hi-Tech is basically an original (style) frame?
Does yours look like one? And is the body from aluminium?

This is the CSX 4000 chassis for fibre bodies. Very similar to CSX 3000 with ally body.

Yes, I was fortunate enough for Tom to see my post. Sent him pictures and he confirmed that it is a HiTech cobra. As it was his company before he started working with CS. I just cannot thank him enough!
