Hi. I bought the G27 on ebay which you are referring to. Collected it today. There were indeed two bonnets. One is a G27 bonnet, series 4 (or 3? Need to check), and the other is a G20 race bonnet.

Welcome to the G27 owners club, easy to buy, impossible to sell as you will absolutely love it!
i willl need to be treated for serious depression if i parted with mine.
Your bonnet is a series 4, enjoy it and hope you get it up and running soon.

Thanks, White Onyx. I am already a Ginetta owner though. I have a G20 race car, which is the second one I have owned. I seem to be developing a habit!

so you didnt put it under "watching" at your ebay?

anway, i might help:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/unbuilt-ginetta-g27-engi...

prisewise: a yellow roadwoarthy zetec powered G27 with all extras, in better as new condition, was sold for 5k around a year ago...and it took the seller nearly 1 year to sell it...ok, i didnt come with 2 bonnets!!!

interesting: the seller of the ginetta has sold some other items, like bicycles and parts...and in some of those auctions could be found the same bidders than with the G27....shill-bidding!!!!

I have the mould to make these bonnets.

Previous statements say that all moulds went back to Ginetta. I bought the mould as I was informed it only fitted my car and thus was of no use to anyone else.

Hello
Would it be either possible to buy the mould or to borrow it?
Thanks

Terry,

I will not be selling the mould - that is categorical.

I would be happy for you to borrow it when I have finished restoring the G4S4... PM me about it though, save open discussion.

By the by, does anyone reading this own the bright yellow Ginetta I saw yesterday near Cubbington (most people would know it as Stoneleigh of car show fame). It had the pop up headlights like a G27/33. Reg number was something like *** 76P or 67P..

Nice to see one out in the wild for once!

Tried to PM you but you have it switched off.
I had sent a facebook message earlier as I think I might have worked out who you are!
Obviously ignore the bit about buying!

All the best
Terry

Sorry Terry, I don't use PH very much so I wasn't aware I had it turned off.

You got the right guy though. I think the car I saw yesterday was 29P, which I think is Mr Petley's car.
