Is that just Perspex? Looks like a great solution.

It's something similar to perspex but i think it is scratch resistant, he told me what it was but i can't remember will ask.

it is a great job and the cab is really quiet now.

Did you use a rubber sealant also behind the scratch resistant perspex?

I have a guy who owns a plastic fabrication shop I could get around 20 sets made If people would be interested? I'll get a price asap

I just used a foam draft excluder , sticky on one side about 3 quid from the builders yard or something like that.
He probably has the cad measurements still as we took a template and then put it through the cnc machine if that sounds right

Spoke to him today and he tells me that it was a product called "Lexan plastic" it is meant to be flexible so wont crack.

he also said it's very expensive and would probably work out about 80 quid for the 2 panels.

The cost of £80 would dull my interest a little, I must admit.

I was lucky that he just happened to have a scrap bit lying around, but I wouldn't want to be paying 80 quid either

Guys, just to gauge interest, and some help.
I can make these, the same as the pic below, no problem.
But I'm struggling to figure out how to attach them..... It could be cable-tied on of course,but I'd rather it be more oem like the picture. They seem to have an expanding block/captive nut, but I'm struggling to find any large enough to fit the bulkhead holes.
I possibly could make some custom blocks of course,
Some lateral thinking needed.
Any thoughts on this?,

Looks good, I'd be interested
Rear ended and killed :cry: 1.9 TDi DSG indian blue wrapped in slightly darker blue lol, now replaced with a new Highline 1.6 TDi DSG bit naked without the logos yet - rather fun but not quite my Audi S4, but makes me smile as much as my 2.6e 80 Cabriolet!!
