Hi,

I'm working on my exige to try and get it back to a road car for it was used in racing for a large part of it's life
Having overhauled the wishbones and LSS koni's, fitted a new main loom, brake calipers, original dash, oil cooler etc
My current projekt is getting a set of the three engine compartement finisher panels
But how much i have tried, sofar i haven't been able to source these.

Recently a friend of mine, who is a professional glass fibre specialist, suggested that if i could find a set it would be very easy for him to extract a mould and produce a new set of panels
The original panels will not suffer any damage as these are wrapped with a special protective layer before the mould will be made.

I know it's a long shot, but does anybody have a set of panels which i can borrow, any costs will be covered and i even happy to pay a bit extra or supply an extra set of new panels

Please let me know if you can help me to get my Exige #467 complete again

thanks, Marten

Hi marten.

I would be interested in a set also as I can't find any either. There is apparently someone here in the UK who actually remakes them but I don't know who.

Thanks, lets hope somebody from this community takes a step forward and is willing to help us.
I'm sure more people need them or will need them at some point in the future and it would be handy if we have the moulds to reproduce these

The guy i know makes very detailed model supercars and has for instance direct contacts at Pagani for which he made some models of their cars
And is obviously very talented with grp and carbon

Anyway as soon as there is any progress I'll let you know too :thumbup:

Hi Arno,

thanks, iso we need at least 4 sets as i know somebody else who also needs them
If only one of the 100 viewers of this thread would be so kind to let us borrow the panels :clap:

Come on S1 owners, there is hardly any risk for you and you know you're gonna make a number of people happy
I will hereby also promise that i'm ready to pay 100 pounds to the person who lets me borrow his panels

regards, Marten
