I know all the roadster frames were the famous "two guys" - did they do
the GTs as well? - if theyre still around can we fid them!!!!!!?
The windscreen and hatch trims are probably the most valuable parts you
can take off a GT parts car,
Just look at the prices in the Moss or VB catalogues! - and - I have
heard that the fit of these replacements leaves a lot to be desired - I
think Mr Houser may have recent experience of this - hehe - Any comment
Since it is so tricky, i cant imagine why one would keep the old rubber
and frankly, Id want a glass shop that knew EXACTLY what they were doing!
