I believe that they are being re-manufactured at the minute, or at least being looked at for re-manufacture.

I've been looking at doing the side ones, though haven't done much more. Is there someone else on the case David?

Ah, OK. I've been messing with the heater control knobs mostly, but did start digging around in the boxes for a decent bonnet rubber to take a mould from.

On the plus side, this warm weather means that any experiment goes off really quickly, so I can do several "runs" in a normal afternoon without leaving things overnight to set.

Hi Droopsnoot,
Is this what you are looking for?, not pristin but usable possibly to make a mould from? If so you are welcome to borrow it.

Thanks, I've got one as good as that but have some other options to go with.
