Upcoming Changes for 2023


We are facing increasing material and supplier costs. Due to this, the price of the base kit and a some of the optional equipment will be adjusted on January 1, 2023


If you are ready to order but won't be ready to receive the kit in the next two to three months, go ahead and lock your price in now by paying the deposit. We can wait to produce and pack your kit later.

Goblin Chassis Info

The chassis is fully welded before it is delivered so you do not need to weld anything. We also predrill all of the floor and firewall rivet holes so that you do not have to drill them yourself.

The chassis is shipped out uncoated (bare steel). It is normal for there to be very light surface rust especially near the welds. This rust is easily dealt with by media blasting the frame before it gets powdercoated. If you plan to paint the frame, you will need to blast or lightly sand the rust before painting.

Cage Style


The full cage configuration provides more protection.

Door Bar Style

Full door bars provides more protection and make a great arm rest.

Easy entry door bars leave space open to make stepping into the car easier.

Double is similar to the full door bars but the upper bar is lowered to make it is easier to get into.


Optional Equipment

Any of the below options can be added to the order now or can be purchased later. These options can even be purchased after you've finished assembling your kit.

Body and Exterior

Hand laid fiberglass hood with mounting hardware. Primer black gel coat finish.

The extended height windscreen is 2 inches taller than the standard height. Most builders will not require the extended height, but taller builders can benefit from the extended height.

The polycarbonate windscreen dramatically cuts down on wind in the cockpit and provides a much more comfortable experience. The windscreen bolts to the hood so you must order the hood as well or fabricate your own mounts.

The fiberglass footwell cover mounts to the chassis over the footwell area to keep out water, road debris and radiator heat.

The side panels rivet to the lower side of the car. The aluminum panels are pre-drilled to make it easy to transfer the rivet hole locations to the chassis tubes.

The fiberglass engine cover is delivered with a primer black gel coat finish. Mounting hardware is included. SS/TC engine covers will be delivered in one piece and will need to be trimmed around the intercooler. Base and SC versions are split and ready to install on delivery.

The staggered fenders will fit 205 wide tires up front and 245 wide tires at the rear.

The fiberglass fender set comes with front and rear steel mounts and mounting hardware. The standard fenders will fit over tires up to 205 treadwidth.

The wide fenders will fit 245 wide tires on all four corners.

The wing mount set will let you attach many universal wings to the Goblin. The kit includes uprights, top mounts, diagonal support rod and fasteners. The kit does not include a wing.


Lights and Electrical

The pair of 3.5" Dominator headlights includes mounting brackets and fasteners.

The side mirrors with built-in turn signals include CNC machined backer plates and fasteners.

The LED license plate mount includes mounting fasteners.

These LED lights function as tail, brake, and reverse lights. Includes mounting hardware.

Fully assembled button panel set with accessory, info, enter, horn, hazard and cruise control buttons. The panels are powdercoated black with white silk screen lettering.

Designed to mount the LSJ and LNF dial boost gauge to the Goblin steering column mount.

Send your donor car's harness to us to be reworked. The harness will be thinned, extended, and taped up so that it is ready to drop into your Goblin chassis.

Replace the donor struts and springs with BC Racing struts and QA1 springs. Includes spring seats, spring caps, nuts, washers and DFKC coilover adapter spacers.

Use our coilover adapters with your own coilover struts and springs.

The duct kit directs fresh air from outside the hood directly to the heat exchanger. Includes ducts, silicone splices, fiberglass shroud and mounting hardware.

Swap from the stock Cobalt lug pattern to 5x114.3 with our redrilled bearing hubs. Includes front and rear hubs.

Tow bar package includes the powder coated tow bar, chassis mounts, hardware and 60" trailer harness.

Instead of reusing your donor car's front brakes at the rear of your Goblin, you can use our parking brake setup. Includes calipers, rotors, adapter mounts and fasteners.

DF Kit Car branded D-shaped steering wheel wrapped in suede. The full kit includes the steering wheel, quick release and splined hub adapter.

Install these steering rack limiters to decrease the overall travel of your donor steering rack. This prevents the tire and wheel from coming in contact with the Goblin control arms.

Purchasing the Kit

Deposit

No matter how you order the Goblin kit or which options you select, the first step is to pay the deposit. This places you into the production schedule.

Ordering in stages can help you spread your budget over whatever time period works for you. Getting the kit delivered in stages can also keep a small workspace from becoming cluttered with extra parts.

  • Stage 2 - Suspension, brakes, steering and enough hardware to get the car on its tires and driving.
  • Stage 3 - Body panels, lights and other final touches.
You'll pay for each stage as you become ready for it and you'll receive the parts as you pay for each stage.
