There are different opinions on fibreglass panels. Some parts are available new in steel like 770/780/885 mudguards, red 850/880/950/990 also white 880/990 as well as 1200 shell type and 90/94 mudguards. Nose cones for most DBs can be got.
Fibreglass was used on the 90 and 94 series nose pieces and the big American 90 and 94s had complete fibreglass bonnets with a steel frame inside.
We have got Fibreglass roofs and side panels for High cab and side panels for Q and VQ cabs, If steel parts cant be got new or used fibreglass is the next best option and also will not rust.

The Fibreglass side panels we sell are an exact copy of the originals with the tabs on the back for the cover, the buttons need to be cut off the old steel panel and bolted on to the fibreglass one.
I have seen other panels that close the space but that is about all.

DB1200, I used to sell the other panels as nothing else was available, but customers who bought them in the past are disappointed when the look at the new ones and think back to the amount of work that was needed to get the other panels into shape before painting.
