hi nick,

I generally use m6 bolts with nice domed heads or washers to spread the pressure one every three inches or so with some tadpole trim sandwiched inbetween the arch and the tub/side panel, makes them look nice

I dont think the nose cone is as nice as the saturn one but i quite like the idea of having a bonnet with no scoop.

I have to agree with markB and the 2 lucky guys who got their panels that live near me with Panthers are very good quality and fit very well.

Just means more choice

I think they are all much of a muchness really even though that oik in Cornwall made the plug for the Panther as it's now called. If GTS have widened it then it was a natural route to take to open the options for buyers.

Getting in and out would be a challenge reminds me of the dunkervoort.

Hi Guys,

Just to add the supply has nothing to do GTS, It is supplied by myself. However the people who are making the body for me purchased a set of Panther moulds and used it in making the new set of moulds. Hence the shape being similar.

Also to add, we have decided that if ordered and paid for in the next month, our complete 10 piece bodykit will be sold for £695 + delivery/collection.
