Re: UK Shows..

Some people knock kit cars, but at national kitcar show you get in free in your kitcar.

Re: Original headliner bows, straight or shaped?

So a previously installed bow would be curved. I can't speak for a pre installed part :blackeye:

Re: can i have all your thoughts on this please
