    Body Panels

    Just spotted this on eBay. The front clip looks like a LB one? Gerry doesn't make a square arch rear clip unless you persuade him to fit them. And it doesn't look like one of Craig's either.
    No idea who the seller is.

    No Guy. It's got the RH headlamp box inner wing inlet recess.

    Guy,
    looks like somebody intending to produce panels to order, rather than a single set for sale?

    Looks to be set up on a steel monocoque in the last picture. The sections which form the centre tub are also created in individual sections as the steel tub would be. Note that there is no front scuttle area, the fibreglass finishes just as it would on the steel tub at the rain gutter channel.

    I'll have to have a close look at 2 tonight, there are mould marks between the B post side panels and the roof, probably where Gerry splits his moulds, the return edges and deep recess for the front wheel arch bubbles made me think LB but it looks like a hybrid set now. How long before we see it's chassis? Or is the builder expected to make that? Not many takers I suspect?

    Front clam leading edge looks true so don't think The front is Hawk based.

    Well spotted Craig.
    I lightened it in PS. 'Steel roof and a pillars, steel part with the large swaged round holes that goes between the rear bulkhead/seat recesses.
    So the GRP panels could possibly be moulded from originals. We seem to have established that they're not from any Stratos kit.

    Hi Guy, by "deep recess" do you mean the height from the body surface to the arch in this area?

    The returns I guess were specific to Corse & LB until now. I wonder if the chassis is original or GTO-Tech?

    The main photo on the ebay listing shows a steel tube rack and one end of a wheeled (orangey red coloured) shell 'spit'/'rotisserie'.
    So it's a place where there's some steel fabrication going on.

    Yes Craig.

    I think we need someone in that neck of the woods to go look see what's going on? Any volunteers?
