Everything always comes up at the worst times! :D :D :D

ado16.info international has been given an opportunity to purchase a stash of panels, and we've got someone prepared to put up some of the cash - we've also got a company that wants to make repro panels at realistic prices of the panels that are not available from either Earlpart or Expressed....and in the case of things like closing sills get some accurate and sensibly priced panels made available ...so 2-days ago we launched this:

https://www.gofundme.com/ado16-info-int ... nal-panels

We'd also love to buy this shell for the sole purpose of making repro panels from it - but I fear the auction will close before we've got very far....and the seller doesn't especially want to help our project - understandable if he needs the dosh I suppose :( :(

I must say that all the panels I have bought from earlpart have been excellent, both in shape, thickness of metal and finish.

the underfloor sills where absolutely perfect

Apart from the sill closing panel I haven't heard anything to the contrary - and in fact Expressed Panels will tell you that in terms of price you're better of going to Earlpart for the front wings.

However, there are many panels, especially repair sections that are not available from either company, and it's those panels which are the primary objective.
