Does anyone know where I can buy fibreglass louvred panels? Looking for some to bond into my bonnet but have drawn a blank.

Are these from Car Builder Solutions any good? Not fibreglass, but plastic, rather than ally?

You could always use the plastic ones as templates to make fibreglass ones from?

Most aftermarket are ABS or similar, to the hole and bond in with tiger seal or similar

I used these for my car:

I only used one, so I may have the other available. The finish isn't great, so it does need some finishing off.
