He also sells the stainless steel electric side windows, these transform the look of the car but are £3.5k......ouch, but if you are going for a top quality build then I think they would be worth it.
If you need any help or advice, I'm just down the road in Egham.
One thing that I would suggest is that you ask CC to ensure that you get a tight gap around the bonnet. So many cars have a gap that you can get your fingers in down to the knuckles. It is a simple job to do and sets the build off.
Thanks for your pointers! Indeed, thereís a few other items from the Grassbank catalogue that Iíve included in the spec having spoken with them at Stoneleigh and looked at their fantastic demo car in detail there. Iíd love their electric windows but theyíre too rich for my budget initially. Iíve a little of my own experience in developing an electric window system for a car designed without them so may have a go myself, but in all likelihood will probably stick with the standard slider for the foreseeable future!

Noted on panel gaps too - I have great confidence in Classicís abilities in that area! Their own Coupe demo car is shaping up very nicely now!

Thanks again for the input! Appreciated!
