Hi Doug , I used to manufacture the grp bodywork for the locost and the Haynes roadster but been working full time on marine Mouldings for 8 years or so. I have some 2nds lying at back of workshop u can have cheap or I still have the moulds for 2 possibly three different nose cones and 2 or three widths of rear and front cycle wings. Would need to compare widths and heights to see if suitable for your use. Think there’s a vented scuttle and one or two bonnets there as well, the nose cones bonnet and scuttle are from a track/race Westfield I no longer have. Prob have pictures of some of these in my photo archive if u want a look or will fwd them by msg when I get 5 mins to take new pics
Regards Hugh.

There’s a few pairs of tatty rear wings and prob half a dozen front cycle wings lying in storage as well, just need widths to see if suitable for your use. New in a colour of your choice wouldn’t be difficult next couple of weeks though. I use surplus resin from larger jobs to keep price out of them.

I have a pair of MK rear wings in white and some cycle wings in blue. They're yours if you want them, but you'd have to collect them from Dorset.

Hugh

Are you interested in selling the moulds for the Locost stuff?

Thanks
Mike

Hi Mike, these are commercial moulds, I don't do much automotive stuff now but still use em for existing customers. I'm a Boatbuilder and GRP Toolmaker though, duplicates wouldn't be a prob. There's a difference between hobby and commercial tools though but in willing to "haggle" I don't fear competition. You would be hard pushed to beat me on price or quality!

No pictures I'm afraid, but there's nothing structurally wrong with them. The rears are probably OK with a bit of a polish, and have stainless (I think) wing protectors on the front. Fronts are blue but with a few chips in the paint revealing bright yellow underneath.

Don't want anything for them.

Edited to add that, I actually have a picture of the car around the time I bought it with the wings on. It's in my photo archive.
