I'm wondering why, with only one weld on panel changed (the rear one, which they already make), they can't offer a Mark 2 shell?

The mark 2 also had a different parcel shelf/internal cross member. The opening for the switch panel is the same shape as the later cars.

they probably will offer a mk2 version, as 'all' they have to do is fit the later rear panel (ignoring all the other stuff that's wrong on the mk1 version!)

are they likely to offer replacement panels they have had to tool for like b posts and correct door frame panels and rear quarters cant rails etc, this would help a lot of restorations

they told me that they don't yet plan to sell any of specific mk1 panels separately as they require a fair amount of fettling to actually fit....................

a panel that needs work to fit would be better than no panel at all though
