    Assuming this is the same guy you mean, go to his profile page here:

    https://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/...p?12018-Gerard

    And click on the "send email" link on the left. This will bring up a forum that you can fill out anf send an email to his email he is registered with here (Sorry I can't give you his email address).

    His site is Gerard’s Garage and someone mentioned that he may have had some health issues...I pray that he’s ok and here’s a link to his website and contact info. https://www.gerardsgarage.com/

    When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life. John Lennon

    You could build your own or have a local fabricator churn out the pieces for you.
