Who to get bodywork from ?

Hello All

Where is the best place to get bodywork for the Locost from ?

It's got ally panels on at the minute - but I want to put fibreglass on.

Would the fibreglass panels fit over the ally ? - I don't want to take them off if I can help it. I'm not really bothered the slight weight increase - 220bhp will take care of that.

I specifically want:

Nose cone
Bonnet
Scuttle
CSR front arches
Full length side panels
Rear panel

All in black.

Has anybody got any recommendations or who to steer clear of please.

I would like the best quality I can get.

Thanks.

Rob

Not sure if GTS tuning are still trading, but if they are I would advise staying well clear of them, unless you fancy fixing damage caused by poor packing, and some bits never turning up. (even with the assistance of someone in this forum).

Put your location in your profile, it helps a lot when you are trying to sell something.
Also, post in the for sale section with prices.

Following the info on here - I will be giving GTS a miss.

I don't want open that can of worms again - but quality and reliability are very important to me.
Bit of a shame as they are in reasonable driving distance from me.
