I've lost the top of my steering shroud somewhere on the a55 when I last used the car. I believe it's a Mk2 non adjustable sierra version.

Does anyone have one that I could purchase? or know where i can purchase one

though I don't need it, could you make the cad file available? (please!)

I might have a spare one - no idea which version it was or if its even in usable condition

but I can't get near it for a week or so to even check which bits I've got


as Mr Whippy says they are highly overrated parts - some of the things folk have come up with in the past to replace them are far nicer

This would be useful if you could share it. I do know someone with a 3d printer so its possible for me

If you could check, then that would be great. I lost in October time so I've been without it for a while.

A bit strong, would you sell your house based on what it cost 40 years ago.
