It would be a fantastic option to have available, lets just hope they actually make it out of a half decent thickness of metal for a change! Not holding my breath.

"The NEC once again plays host to the season-ending Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show – with 2500 cars hosted by more than 200 clubs, there’s something for everyone.

The tortuously-named Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery is still the UK’s largest undercover classic car event by some margin. As well as the 2500-plus classic cars to look at, delivered by 240 classic car clubs, there are 650 specialist exhibitors and traders in an autojumble area that rivals some of the biggest open-air sales…

n 2017, there have been numerous improvements to the show. For one, the dismal 1970s-standard yellow/orange lighting in the halls has finally gone, meaning that you’re getting a much truer representation of the cars’ colours. It’s also so much brighter, which means you don’t emerge from the halls with a 1970s-style sense of doom and gloom. That makes all the difference.

The halls seemed as crowded as ever (we’ll get attendance figures on Monday), the catering was as costly and unrewarding as ever, and – most importantly – the overall price of attending the event was hugely expensive: £26.50 per adult, and £12.00 for a day’s parking (unless you leave after 6.00pm when all the parking booths empty out).

If there’s a few of you going, that adds up to one expensive day out. Four mates, one car, and you’re looking at £116 before drinks, lunch and goodies at the autojumble."

As a veteran my advice is to book beforehand and with a club discount code found by googling around! That brings tickets down to £21.50 then park on the train station for £9, we've even parked under cover right near the entrance for the last few years and will for the bike show next weekend.

Don't tell everyone though :-)

Magnum were a bit vague about the panels.

 

No ideal of cost and said they'd be released this year.

 

No real details about the actual panel either/

"Magnum panels" and "accurate" are not two words I would use.

All mini panels need work to fit correctly

We should be grateful suppliers like Magnum are willing to make the investment......(most classic car enthusiasts have far less choice of panels of any kind and suppliers who can provide them), even if they need a bit of fettling to fit. Even Heritage panels if available are rarely a perfect fit.....the Mini was a handbuilt 1950's design and never built by robots!

I've only used magnum door steps, flitch panels and rear valence closing panel things. I had to reshape the door steps and bend the closing panels in every direction to get them to fit, and the flitch panels were too long !!!.

 

I have used heritage for the scuttle, wings, A panels, door skins, boot floor, rear boot skin, rear quarter panel, and they have all been a perfect fit.

 

I have an MPI front panel from magnum, not yet fitted but seems to be OK when trying it in position.
