At present, this is the next panel to go into manufacture and a pre production sample has not yet been made. It is likely to be the full battery tray and includes the bracket.

The Details:

This post is for a B series Battery Tray Repair Panel.

Yes, but needed soon.......its a make one, as cant wait on it. Out of interest its hard to see how far left it goes and the other edges, do they finish flat? Hard to judge as where does the panel end and begin?

Perhaps an option without the the bracket and nut fitted to bring the price down?

Would including the bracket but not fitting it be of any benefit, battery relocation?, bigger battery, smaller battery! Just an idea!

Yes, definitely worth thinking about this. We did actually discuss this as a possibility as it also would bring the cost down slightly.

Any chance of seeing where the panel ends and the finished edges, gives us an idea where the new metal begins, maybe a existing photo as above but with a few lines showing edges. Thanks

Dave may have beat the club to the finish line on these?

It will be interesting to see what they are like. Obviously we have put quite a bit of time and effort into trying to get quality parts made, but if demand drops off as a result of this, it may jeopardise the production run.

I think it’s a safe bet that will happen. 
maybe time to prioritise another important part people really want? Coupe rear panels I would say.

Coupe panels are already in the mix for remanufacture, although To be honest, this recent development puts the whole process of the club remanufacturing panels in jeopardy. I asked Dave politely not to tread on our toes and he has blatantly ignored that. Don’t forget, we are doing this for the good of the club members and will not be making any money out of this personally. I suspect that is not the case with any other supplier. 
 

I am looking into suspending the whole process at the moment as we can’t afford to waste any more of our own personal time  if this isn’t going to happen. It’s a shame really as these panels from Express would have been of exceptional quality. Not the cheap back street stuff that you will now be fitting to your cars for the financial benefit of one person, who isn’t even a member of the OMOC.

Apologies if that sounds a bit strong but I am, (understandably I feel), a bit pissed off.

I think dave is using the same manufacturer as the club so I cant see quality being an issue, and he seems to have made some real nice stuff for the chevette lads. Personally I would have loved to have supported the club on this but its a shame things have taken so long to get moving. I also think dave has beaten the club to the finish line on these and other manta panels and is already taking deposits for the A post closing panels. Either way its great that panel production for the b is under way whomever makes it first just glad that we may finally be able to get the sections most of us need for restoration.

Yup agree Andy, club has taken way to long to get thier act together and beaten to it. Did not know him until he posted about those A post infill panels, but after looking at what he gas made for other Vauxhall's I was happy to hand my money over

I wouldn't be so hasty.  How far off from production are you? Dave has only just taken deposits for the kick panels.  Delivery is 6 to 8 weeks away.  He hasn't asked for orders on the battery tray.  Me personally I'd rather support the club.  Better chance of these panels being available again in the future.  I guess Dave will only ever do one run.

Dave isn’t using the same manufacturer as us, as far as I’m aware. He is using someone local I believe. It will be interesting to see how they turn out as I might have to look at changing suppliers as I’m getting really frustrated with the lack of movement from the supplier we are trying to work with. We have done everything they asked us to do, even supplying them with OEM panels to use, so I can say that it isn’t down to us dragging our feet.

I'm certainly not accusing anyone of dragging their feet.  It's been a difficult 18 months.  I'd rather have the best panel available.  If you've asked Dave not to do the panels the club is having manufactured and your request has been ignored that's not on. There's plenty of other panels that's unavailable he could have made.  Rear floors? Put me down for a club battery tray please Paul.

To be fair to Dave I've seen the posts on Facebook. He's been getting a lot of requests to get these panels made. Again not having a go at the club but when someone offers you a decent timescale for a panel you desperately need you're not going to say no.

OMOC, get moving, it will work out, get the orders in, get the pole out on what people need, and whats already on the market. 

Agree we will always need repair panels, its just finding out whats desperately needed, and demand. 

There is a bigger market out there outside the omoc, so its a balance of keeping the members on here right also, this would be crucial to keep increasing members of omoc.
