    Fantastic. Well done, great service in supplying a very sort after part, and that in Aluminium.
    After BMW recalled their soon to be available hoods, you have the market cornered :)

    Well done - really look great.

    Dilemma - I have a CSL right side door on the car. With this and a left side door !!!! Hmmmm = well, probably not!

    Amazing!

    I can only speculate how much that would cost.

    Mark - you are a fabrication genius. At least a planning and logistics genius. Maybe just a genius. :D

    When I asked about the timeline on those other aluminum parts - you could have just said “Sorry, I’m focused on making CSL bonnets”. :)

    What a brilliant job - congratulations, Mark.
    This panel is an extremely complex structure and it must have taken a lot of hours' head scratching to get this right:confused:.

    People have £5k to spend on a bonnet?
    Think I'll give up rocket surgery and get into panel fabrication.
