I'll be placing an order soon! From New York, USA

Lauran Lint says:

Nice video. I’m having the same problem here. Are you selling those panels? Shipping to The Netherlands. Please let me know.

Rob Lightbody says:

Great video. Do you think your panels would perform the same as the originals in a crash situation? They seem like they could be stronger than the original metal, so might crumple differently?

Hope you don’t mind if I ask if this corrosion occurs on the MkIII MX5’s

tdmtam says:

Thanks for a great and informative video. Looking into buying a MX5 this has shown me where to look and how much work is involved to fix this issue, so I will be checking this.

Tom says:

How thick are those panels? Thanks for the great video! I think I'll be ordering a set soon 🙂

CJ Drives says:

I sent you an email. I’m in the states and I have a mx5 with almost the exact same problem.
How do I purchase your plates? I can do the labor.
