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?,

Can anyone identify the part number for the expanding block/captive nut? That looks like an OEM brochure.

I'd be interested in a finished solution like this too :)

Been googling this all night and no body seems to know the part numbers. It's exactly what I'm after. Was going to b&q some Perspex but don't really want to just screw it in. Also want to remove the mesh.

Could we source the part number of the fixings in the mesh? I could do with a dozen fixings (with the screws too :) ). The rubber seals around the perspex would be a nice finishing touch.

Part numbers would be good, but I think it's an aftermarket part.
Today was prototype day....
I've a sample of rubber edging on order.
(the perspex has a protective film on both sides, that's why it looks cloudy/scratched)

I was in conversation with a fella today.
He is able to laser-cut these, laser drill the holes etc which greatly cuts down on the risk of star cracking.
I'm still waiting for a sample of edging, But I'd say we are looking at a rough price of £40 delivered per set. £30 without edging, but I'd say it will add some rigidity.
They will be completely removable....no holes need drilled into your bulkhead
Still interested?

I definately would be..but I want to remove the cross section grid so it just looks like a window so would probably need to figure out another way of fixing them.
