panels, help on numbers please

#1 Post by Lloydpiestate » Thu Oct 23, 2014 4:52 am

hi all,

since returning from my meeting with the manufacturers i have been seriously been crunching numbers.

from the start of this panel quest, i always expected to take a loss on the first batch of panels, and claw it back with the second batch, the simple reason for that is, i would need to sell the panels for around £700 each to get my money back on the first batch, and no one would pay this understandably, so what i need are numbers of cars left to see if there will be a second batch !!!

ive spent over the last 8 years or so around 12 thousand man hours doing and researching all this and i am sure the cars are out there, but i need to be sure.

i know i can go on " how many are left " but thier numbers are wrong, as 3 out of my 4 cars are not on there so im sure its the same for a huge amount of other cars.

so what i need from you all, in particular club officials that have members car numbers on record, im not asking for names or any personal info, just car numbers, but that will only be a rough indication as alot of us are members of both clubs or more, so there will be duplications

this is a huge task to find these numbers im looking for worldwide, but ive gotta find out, so if you all could just make a short posting just saying how many cars you have and mk1 or 2, that would be a start and let me know of any others you know of that wont see this posting.

thats another half hour added to the 12 k :lol:

THANKS ALL

Lloyd, we will be taking your fliers (is that the correct spelling?) to the NEC with us, I will ask people to email you what cars they have when they pick one up :D

Hi Lloyd,

I've got a Mk1 saloon that will need some panels at some point. Hopefully by the time batch 2 comes into being I'll be able to afford them.

Mine's a Mk2 saloon, but it won't need new panels unless involved in a significant accident.
