    After trawling through some sites a coupe of variations on the Defi rear end, both with meshes as you intend to, but different styles

    I'm liking the polycreations rear end - they really suit the car and I'm a fan of round tail lights. A mesh grille will finish it nicely. On the subject of actuators, do you get a good negative hold down pressure with these? One of the advantages of the hydraulic systems is it's ability to clamp the roof firmly against the body limiting the amount of squeaks and rattles from the roof

    The blue car grill looks very much like the front grill off a late 70s /80s hatchback

    Hi Phill, Short answer yes. There is a 'brake' on the actuator that locks the piston in place when the power comes off, either up or down. The brake is an optional extra on the LA30 Actuator.

    This is my Dash base, which came from poly-creation last year,
    I asked them not to drill out any holes for the de-mist vents, but they did anyway.

    The holes are ~85mm diameter,
    anyway now I am having problems finding vents to fit, modern ones are quite a bit smaller.

    Any thoughts? Please don't tell me they are from a Mk 1 Escort.

    Cover the front, fiberglass in from the rear, satin black paint on top, holes gone. Then cut whatever size or shape you want where you want

    Maybe fill them with fibreglass and then cut holes at precisely the diameter/shape you require?

    Haha ... great minds think alike David!
