Hi, Have you got any pictures of your Mk1?
My Partner has got a lot of things from his Mk1 He's got a bonnet boot, doors, dash Head lights, etc The List gose on But not a front pannel but if any of them are handy to you just ask
Thanks for the reply - dug a couple of mobile shots out - not sure I have attached them quite right! It been on the road in various guises... One as track focused car with cage/spax/130bhp stage 3 x/flow with 5spd LSD etc. Currently getting proper treatment - sorting all the body bodges that have happened over its life. Got new rear quarter, sills all rust has been cut out and fabricated repairs. Sound deadening and underseal all removed.
Just missing panels now :-(
Will sort out some better pics as it was - I've been playing with fibreglass - figured as panels were getting rarer, when I bought a pair of wings I stuck the bodykit on and moulded it as 1. White panel is the result - nice and light but looks to all intents and purposes original. Bodykit can be bodycoloured or satin black to look like the plastic. Clears wheels better too if playing around with geometry - I got adjustable suspension coming plus done the Nova spherical top mount conversion with Gas adjustables with camber nuts. Made carbon (wet-lay) bonnet, painted satin black as finish wasn;t amazing - will stop there as glassing pretty labourious - doors etc would be good :-)
Its a sunroof shell but got a supersport steel panel which should look cool.
Thanks for the offer of bits - no sure I need anything for now - just STEEL! Rally hoping to line a front panel up soon - failing that I'll have to buy a lower to puddle wled to the cross member (strcutural!) and make a glass top half (maybe!)
What ya got?!?!
