STEVENS ESPRIT BATTERY COVER

Through the help of George Karellas of SOUP Classic Motoring, I've secured a Stevens Esprit battery cover 'in good nic' as George would say.

Wondering if there's a demand amongst owners here that would warrant us finding a shop that could pop a mold of the box and lay-up new pieces? I've searched far and wide to no avail and this is the only one I've come across...and it was, literally, across the pond. I'd be happy to surrender the box for duplication for Esprit brethren.

Bob,

If you are doing that, there are folks looking for the G-Esprit cover, as well.

Supposedly the covers are available from SJ Sportscars in the UK.

Ah, but isn't your cover a genuine cover? That always costs more.
Have you seen the cost of the tool kit that goes on top of that cover?
One sold on eBay for $500, so getting all the loose ends for completeness can be costly.
