Lola T70 MK3b Bodywork - Suppliers ??

2000 posts now - "Tempus fugit" right enough !

I am thinking about starting up a new project later this year.
This time around I will do a lot of the research work beforehand but I would appreciate an early recommendation as to who can supply accurate series 3b bodywork in Europe.

James,

I have some friends here in south of France who have the molds for producing bodyworks for all Lola T70, T280/290, etc, including the Mk3b.

If you need, PM me, I'll give you their contact details.

Hi James,

to my knowledge, they all go shopping at

Welcome to TWM

They do have the original body moulds but their panels come at a price...

Best,

Marcus

I'll second the folks at TW Mouldings. They provided me with nose badges and replacement headlight covers (the ones from RCR were useless).

Frank,
that unusual because our headlight cover supplier makes them for the Lola continuation cars and also supplies Mac Mclendon too.

Fran:
The picture shows the problem. More bubbles than cheap champagne. Both are unusable.

Re: Lola T70 MK3b Bodywork - Suppliers ??

Original front and rear sections are easily ordered from Tony at TWM, BUT ..... you may have to do some "cutting and shutting" as GTD moulds have differences.

I don't think Toluka lake classics is around anymore. I can't find a current link for them anyway. Anybody have a current link?

Re: Lola T70 MK3b Bodywork - Suppliers ??

The only manufacturer of the genuine (from original moulds) Lola T70 Mk3b, is TWM at Ellington, nr Huntingdon in UK. I see Tony Waterman fairly regularly and his standards are OUTSTANDING. He ships worldwide.

Always busy, him, his son and co-workers can mould a replacement section or whole panel to perfection, and he has supplied me with several sections to repair my car.

TWM's web site/address doesn't work. Looks like they're shifting over to another program/server?

Could be an error, other pages on their site are working. Try this one:

Re: Lola T70 MK3b Bodywork - Suppliers ??

Wie willst Du denn den Unterschied zu TW wissen, wenn Du meine Hauben an deinen GTD Center Body hälst?
Selbst wenn es viel Nacharbeit wäre, macht mir das bei dem vielen Aufwand auch nichts mehr aus.
