    240 Fibreglass panels

    Looking for fibreglass, or lightweight, bonnet - boot lid - rear spoiler - front spoiler - bumpers for my 242 rally car.

    Anyone got any ideas or contacts?

    Thanks

    if ur 242 has big bumpers you can change them for the later 240 style bumpers which should save a little weight.
    also all pannals would need to be custom made as i doubt anywhere will sell pre made

    Got a flatfront bonnet skin and a boot skin from Sweden. Found a "so called" manufacturer of fiberglass panels for the 240 (and a host of other classics) but trying to get him paid and the goods delivered is worse than having root canal work with no pain-killers.

    Wow what a thread resurrection.

    I wanted a lightweight bonnet for my 245 but after looking around and finding the only company doing them was in the USA I backed out for the hassle and thought more pwoer would be easier ha ha ha


    Would be nice to get some weight out of the old girl though.

    *Cough**...I've no idea who the hell your talking about,lol.

    If you can source me a bonnet (in good condition) then I can make one, though it may take me a while as I'm back at work now.
