I'm sorry if I gave that impression and I agree with you. GBS is probably perfectly adequate at covering the chassis, not only does fabby make a better product but you can even pick your gel coat colour, the two just don't compare. I know where I'm going for wings/scuttle/nose cone when I can scrap some money together.

All I'm trying to say, is that when someone asks about a product, I think its polite to try and answer his question, rather than just dismiss it, because he's not talking about the Lamborghini of fibreglass. People are working with different budgets and have their own style preference.

As the book has the subtext "On a budget", its hardly surprising people want to save money, at the expense of free time. After all, its why many of us make, rather than buy the chassis.

Again, as Andy mentions, my own opinion and I'm not trying to put anyones nose out

Going round in circles indeed!!!....I can't stay on the damn thing long enough to go round in circles...jeeeez they are awkward to master

Nobody has to buy my grp panels,because the book does detail making most of it in ali and lists Martin Keenan as the supplier for the other bits.

Be Warned and do not fall in that trap Robin hood nose cone does not fit, they will tell you it will and take your money. Buy the one from Mark and save all the hussle from Robin Hood.
