Hi ive been making fiberglass and carbon parts for the vauxhall nova but now i have nearly all the moulds for them i'm looking into doing other vehicles.

I understand if i wish to advertise on here i will have to register as a trader which is not a problem but before i do that i was just wondering if there would be enough interest in doing composites parts for the corsa's as i know there are quite a few companys offering parts already.

What i was more wondering was what parts can't you get hold of for the corsa's for example standard wings instead of wide arch kits and if there would be much call for such a thing.

Any ideas will be greatfully appreciated

I hope this doesn't count as a traders post as i'm just looking for more ideas on what to do next

Or if anyone has any other idea's about differen't makes or models

theres already a canny few companies that make them like you say, it would depend on your prices i would think as to weather u would get plenty of sales.

carbon door cards would be easy to sell on here as every one wants them. took me 8months to find a set of just fronts

Yer carbon door cards are impossible to find. No body makes them any more. little things like carbon L peices off c20xe and let engines will sell very well, cam covers, little bits like that. People are always after them mate

To make a full door out of carbon is going to be very expensive.

What I did think about was making the inner framework from glass and then just the outer in carbon?

Or would people want pure carbon?

I like the sound of the door cards if no ones making them already.

This is a picture of a nova part

They dont mean the whole door. They mean the trim inside the door. The bit that is normally a nasty tacky fabric

I'll work out some prices on certain parts, sounds like the door cards and front wings might be the most promising.

Just a quick picture from some of the work I've done

Picking some corsa b wings up this weekend to take the moulds from.

I'll be able to work out prices on items once I have the parts to measure from.

This has come up a few times on corrado forum, seeing as VW panels as so expensive and being obselete.

But i think every attempt so far had ended up no where, due to quality and fit issues.

Corrado Front wings would be a seller imo

That's why I only make the moulds from original pannels as spurious ones never ever fit right, I have sold a lot of nova fiberglass wings and they all fit bang on.

Would corrado original wings be hard to track down?

I am looking for more models so this may well be another avenue

to be honest mate the door cards themselves will be an awesome seller for you, there's hundreds of people who are after them, performance trim or something used to make them but they went bust so now no one makes them new

little things like cam covers and the l piece spark plug covers would go awesome
