    here in france i make many fibreglass things, i have moulds for micro caravans, 5/8 scale gt40 (2.6m long). If someone had some old side skirts, i could repair them then make a mould, then make cheap side skirts for forum members. they are very expensive for what they are on Japanese auction sites. Just an idea? need to get hold of a pair to make the master mould. I can modify them slightly if there are and copyright issues.

    There is a 50 / 50 chance I may be driving over to my brothers place in France from Leeds via the chunnel. I bought a set of side skirts for my beat from a forum member and I think they make a world of difference. If anyone has a spare set sitting around I may be able to take them over to Nigel for replication. He lives fairly near my brothers place in France.

    I have moulds to make teardrop caravans, gt40's (5/8th scale), so A hard top would be easy enough to mould, I see them selling for a daft price on croooober and yahoo Japan. It's getting of an original to make a mould from?
