Willys Flip Front...brand new!

Postby ratrodmog » Tue Jul 08, 2014 11:06 am

Well I've finally got around to posting some pictures of the 'new' Willys front end for the Minor. You may have seen the 1st one at the National Rally which was taken by Mr Mark Winton (badobsession) and I'm sure he will be fitting it and posting some info about it soon.

For now, here are some pictures of what you'll be getting and priced at £350 inc VAT you won't find these anywhere else...

Just to clarify a few questions I've had regarding this flip front...yes I've made it but it's from an old mould done from an original buck. The laminate is two layers of black polyester gelcoat, the second with a layer of chopped strands. This is then covered with two layers of 450g matting and added foam core reinforcements for strength. See pictures below...

This is not like your standard mass produced GRP panels that are thick and heavy, it has been made very lightweight whilst still retaining a good amount of structural rigidity.
Questions, comments and critisisms are always welcomed.

Just thought I'd bump this up to see if there is any more interest out there on this panel. Get one in time for the summer shows! :D
