Has anyone created a Shapecraft pattern to convert a car?

It is genuine.

Apologies; I've not been paying attention here, real life has intervened.
Dave Hughes has, I believe, the moulds to create a glass-fibre replica roof. Dave has not been here fore while either. :(

Dave is a very busy boy with various irons in the fire. The Shapecraft replica is still ongoing.

Hi all
I am still working on the Honda powered Shapecraft and purchased a heater/ac unit whilst here in the USA

Will need some mods to fit behind dash but solves the problem of running a/c in the fixed hardtop.

Pic att'd of the Shapecraft Shell I now have the moulds complete for the roof plus other panels coming shortly.

cheers
