Any info on a RW Karma, Ferrari Dino Kit

Ive recently purchased a RW Karma, Ferrari Dino replica kit which was built around 1984 on a VW Beetle. Does anyone have any information on this kit?
A build manual would be nice.

Thanks for the link to karma tribbeck, some helpful information. I don't think much of the convertible idea though, a straight chop between the front and rear screens like the original looks better.
My one is sitting with a 1300 Beetle engine, but shortly (or should that be eventually) to be replaced with a 2litre, 16-valve lump from a Toyota MR2, gearbox the lot, which decided to make enemies with a large tree at speed.
Loads of fabrication to do first though.

Thought this kit looked familiar.
Isn't it the Kelmark GT Kit?

The original white gelcoat is still under there. And the paint looks better in the picture than real life. (Gotta love these fuzzy digital cameras. Image)

Earlier this year I bought a 1972 RW Karma Dino. I've been fiddling with it ever since and have gotten it on the road, despite some lingering problems, especially the lack of tinware in the engine bay leading to fuel vapour lock etsc. Want to increase power significantly. Happy to share what I have found out with others. Not sure if an owners club exist?
