Default Vmax composites announcement

Due to the work load and the need to remake the set of moulds I have decided that i will be halting production of bodywork once the order book is cleared i am closing further orders on the 1st april so if you do want any parts please order before then and they can be tagged onto the end of the current order book

I expect to be down for about 6 months whilst new moulds are made as during this time i will need to build or buy a chassis in order to ensure new parts will fit the new parts in the planning are some sides that fit properly a new diffuser and a new aeroscreen

Before the end of production i will be clearing the current backlogs so everyone will get what they have ordered so please don't panic

Thanks for your understanding during the down time

Vmax, are you still using the original moulds that fabbyglass made, or have they been remade at some point?

I suspect they are the same moulds some of them take a lot of time to get a good finish on the final part
