Default Bodywork seconds

Hi all,
Does anyone know where I can get bodywork seconds from?
I need everything really, I would even consider cracked / damaged panels
Many thanks
Ben

Hi Ben be careful if you buy parts from different people there is different styles that won't match each other Eqinox panels are a little bit higher than other makes which works out better for engine clearance, the scuttle is shaped a little bit different from other makes the engine side of it seems to be less of a slope.
Imo Eqinox are the best.
Regards Mick.

Thereís prob some rear wings in the moulds ( 2 styles) defo front wings prob a bonnet and two styles of front nose cone that would prob fit a Roadster. We used to build complete Roadsters but I split with ex partner and work on my own now. Kept the tooling for my own car will take some pics see if any of itís any use too u.. do u know what width front and rear arches u need?

All bodywork will be wrapped or painted but in all honesty it will probably go to IVA as is.
Many thanks
Ben
