Wanted - small aluminium scoops

You'd think this would be easy but seems it isn't. Looking for two small rectangular shaped scoops with rounded backs. Like smaller versions of the one I had on my 289 bonnet. They need to be around 120l x 80w x 40 deep. Lots in plastic or glass but can't find off the shelf ones in ally. Any ideas o...

Excellent. Early on he said he was in the right gear but that tie looked a bit dodgy Mr Cholmondeley-Warner. How quaint that light flashing was considered acceptable whereas these days it could get you booked for road rage or stabbed. Gentler times, especially without the packs of middle aged, Lycra...

Re: Seat Runners

Re: Looking for a Hawk 289 FIA

In fact, taking it to Cheng and Barry for an FIA makeover as with Barry's own car would be a great idea. :D
