    I spoke to an old friend today from when I used to play round with old split screen vans, the early pre 55 Barndoor ones , parts were hard to get but a bloke called Gerson started making bits, I used a lot of them and they where soon thought of as the best bits you could buy to restore you old bus ,

    and guess what ? he brought a couple of old Datsun's to take apart for patterns and has started to make press tools for new panels :) only a few as yet , but if he makes more we could have a new decent supply of good fitting repair panels

    Hallelujah - there’s a rear hatch outer skin repair panel pictured. No one’s done those on a long time. Might help me salvage Dixie’s original hatch, which is in danger of being junked otherwise!

    Hi Mike

    Why aren't they on your website? I always look for a web option first nowadays, before trying other routes to find stuff.

    I thought the sources for that had dried up? I stand corrected!

    Not a story for public consumption, but I can't publicly advertise them.

    Word of mouth to old fashioned customers who don't want everything to be on the internet...
