    New Renault 15/17 fiberglass guards

    Expressions of Urgent Interest

    I just heard New fiberglass guards for 15/17's are getting manufactured in Melbourne, a limited amount will be made.........as I understand.........

    The price should be around estimated $150.00 per guard, but they think if it's more, it should be no more than $20/$30 per guard?..

    What about for Fuego's? No fibreglass coming our way

    Talking about Caravelle, does anyone know what happened to the $470 dollar Fuego bonnet that was on sale a couple years ago? Was interested in it but not for 470 bucks....

    That fibreglass bonnet has been sold. So I guess the $470 wasn't considered too bad by the buyer. I suppose when you can no longer buy new Fuego bonnets there is not much you can do apart from fibreglass or secondhand.

    Having not seen the first batch of fibreglass bonnets and guards I was wondering what the quality was like, and how many people have got them on their cars now?

    The first batch of gaurds Ken (or it might have been Norm back then, I can't remember) imported from England, there still available if anyone wants then (I think I still have one) but the quality was shocking, they didn't fit properly requiring cutting and reglassing in area's, the glass was real thin in places and all over needed a lot of work. So be careful bring in overseas panels, if Caravelle can get there fingers burnt so can we. These new ones are being done locally and I'm told the quality is excellent, the Fuego bonnets are excellent and well worth the money so I presume the gaurds will be as well.
