Hi,

In your signature is written "Building: Haynes Locost". So it is hard to know if you are building a Haynes Roadster or a Locost. Not the same sizes of car, so not the same bodyworks.

If it is a Haynes, I highly recommend Equinox for the bodywork.
https://equinoxproducts.co.uk/product-category/haynes/

Hope that will help

Yes haynes-roadster. Looked at equinox, but 55 postage.
Over the top for postage by a long way.

Really? That sounds quite decent to me. Bear in mind that most pieces of bodywork would be considered fragile, and would either need a huge amount of packing and reinforcement, or a very sympathetic delivery company. My bodywork actually came in the back of the manufacturers van, and 55 wouldn't go very far if you consider mileage, van costs, person costs, etc.

I'm not sure there are other manufacturers of Haynes Roadster bodywork anyway, as they all closed down one by one along the years.

The alternative might be GBS Zero (wide body) via Kit Spares (link), but will certainly be more expensive.
