I'm after that same section.

My FB's one has had the crap belted out of it by heavy things like oxy cylinders bashing the daylights out of it so if two become available I'm happy to go seconds :shock:

The plan is to make a lower section from the upper.

OK. I am lucky with the bottom but the top section is very bent up. Great you found one!

There was a bloke on bookface yesterday who is currently gearing up to reproduce these panels
When you're faced with an unpleasant task that you really don't want to do, sometimes you just have to dig deep down inside and somehow find the patience to wait for someone else to do it for you.

That'd be right seeing I finished repairing mine yesterday. Brett has probably put Sasha Stark on to it.

Innocent of all charges😁. A fellow called Brody Walker said he was going to make some. Sasha said he could make them if he had a template. Anyone with the right sized bead roller could make the bottom panel without any trouble. Top with the right angle maybe a bit more of a challenge.

I contacted him, he's unsure of when these panels will be available.
