Just been looking at http://georgebarberpanels.co.uk/ the panels look very good, quite a choice and very reasonably priced inc vat, have a peep why don't you. Finn.

That was a good find Paul, usual stuff but very reasonable. Wings and bumpers especially cheap.

sorry for thick question but...

the "floor left side", "floor right side"

is that saying for £200 I can have a WHOLE new floor?

It would appear so, just been talking to one of the staff there, any order over £100 is free carriage so it gets better. Finn.

Shame it's just magnum panels, sill ends don't fit, either do the drip rails, as for the rear lower 1/4s erm well yes. At least the strut top panels are a bit better now. Still only a guide line of what the panels should be. 👍

Have to agree, Magnum panels are not as good as they should be. I have a Magnum from wing here... its embarrassingly bad.

As I am the Worlds best body basher, welder and fabricator it is a mere Bagatelle for me to make them fit as they should, or I could get my Kiwi mate Pete to fit them, that might be best. Finn.

certain that Magnum panels aren't the best fit, but its new metal, its close, and the guys that have skills and building their next dream can cope...
still better than a sheet of rust or tin-foil .. and probably better than the 'MaxiCar' panels I fitted in 2005 and found they dissolved by 2010 ..

if you have a project build you just want to get built and driven as opposed to factory-correct and hidden in a garage, methinks they are fine

well done Mr Finn for finding a sensibly priced supplier that will serve a need for most road going enthusiasts.

As you say, a lot can be done by a skilled bodybasher, which I am not, Pete does all the fettling and I squirt a bit of weld in place. Finn.

that's incredible then

I need a front wing and whilst the interior is all out, would make sense a new floor too then if only £100!
