A guy called Bob Wright does a whole pile of panels for the Sprint, can't remember them all, but I think included everything on the outside including the sills! The front wings were a similar price to Smith & Deakin.
Problem is I can't find any links for him at the moment. A google search threw up a few answers but were all from a non existant site of AROC north east section. Their site has moved to AROCs main site but I can't access it at the moment! I did find a page of his own in the past, but no luck now!
I believe there was an article in a recent "Retro" mag about a guy who rebodies 105 GTVs in GRP which is probably him. I haven't read it so I can't be sure!
If I find anything, I'll let you know!
