Default Body work

Hi not been on in a while, has any one had Equinox body work delivered satisfactorily. It is too far for me to collect and just concerned about transit !

Has any one purchased body work from eBay ? Looks like it could be alsbodyshop ?

Trying to consider options ?

Is v max still doing body panels.

Sorry if lots of answers all ready been given on the subject but any replys would be greatly appreciated.

DaveyB

Hi, Iíve just picked up bodywork from eBay. (Tim.Storey)
They are Alís moulds, panels are ok but I asked for seconds. Side panels are very tight, rear tub needs tubular chassis supports. But otherwise ok

Hi,

I had a full body work delivered to Sweden fro Equinox when I built my Haynes a few years back. One of the side panel had been a bit damaged during transport, but Equinox exchanged the panel for free without any problem. They did their best to pack the parts it as good a they could, but after, it all depends of the driver and they way the parts are loaded in the truck.

I think you can trust them for shipping the parts.

Hope that will help

VMax got the "Curse of the Saturn Mould"

The Curse ruined 3 vendors, and many a builders dream. And a lot of other things besides.

Best left swept under the carpet.

I've used Tim for my panels, well my nose, bonnet and scuttle and they're plenty good enough. They are straight from the mold too so need finishing.
