Fibreglass parts

Postby Skirrow » Mon Feb 10, 2014 5:43 pm

What's everyone doing about fibreglass parts these days?

I have a buyer interested in my old buggy but it never had a nose cone or rear arches. Are they available from anywhere or Dave Smart been seen recently?

I would look at just getting some made... :-)

Fibreglass is easy to work with :-)

The arches are easy enough to find ....

Cheers Danny, I'll pass the info on to him and if he doesn't fancy taking the buggy I'll give you first refusal before it goes on eBay

Hi again
What brackets are people using to hold on the rear arches ?
I’ve got the ones that are mounted with the handbrake cable incorporated. The trouble is they wobble allover the place and if you jack the wheels up they hit the arches so you can’t turn the wheel !

Yes agree, you need to fab some up. I can dig out a pic of mine, I took photos of most things. :-)
