Evening all. I'm searching for an upper front valance for my 1850. Anyone know of one?

I've moved the thread here where it belongs (clearly a "wanted" thread) and it should get a bit more attention.
Did you know that the Club does the outer front panel in fibreglass? Might be worth considering if you're struggling to find one in steel.

Oh excellent! I'll talk to Gra, the welder, tomorrow and see if there's anything else needed. How do I go about buying it? Where abouts is your garage? I'm in Dorset.

GRP is fibre glass; they are a very good replica and fit well, but welding won't be any use to fit it. If your welder is a competent bodyworker, then he should find it a breeze...

Location is Stourbridge.
