Evening all, can you buy the E1 side panels (inside) or do they need to be made? Can't find any info online!

Haeyou tried tiger racing? It’s worth ringing them as they may well have some in stock but if not they would be fairly easy to make yourself, just some hardboard, thin wadding and some vinyl. Especially if you have some of the original there to take a patern off

ISTR that the side panels were made from 3mm ply then covered as said previously.

I’m thinking of using the same 6mm PVC I used for my dash. Bit more of a ‘colder’ and clinical look than all padded though. 🤔

When I built mine I used thin ply covered in a thin layer of foam and vinyl on top. I made my panels slightly longer than the Tiger originals. I may still have the Tiger supplied panels in my garage somewhere as I didn`t use them. They are for an E1.

Tiger Racing use 3mm Marine Ply for the inside panels as they are then able to withstand the wet and damp conditions when driving or standing in your garage.

They then use a spray adhesive to attach / stick the foam into place with the excess being trimmed to the shape of the panel before doing the same with the vinyl covering but this time turning +/- 25mm over the edge of the panel and sticking it down.

This then gives a more soft rounded edge to the internal panel or dash.

Alternatively you dont fit them as it is all extra weight.

Another possibility for you to consider . I made side panels from 3mm foamex sheet and then covered them with carbon fiber matting available from easy composites. The result was a rigid panel finished to a high gloss showing carbon weave. A you tube video shows the process. Hope this helps.

I used ally sheet and covered it in "bass box" carpet which is very thin, but durable.

[thumb] Went with the above (bass box carpet) as I had some already and also kept the template to make a pair of carbon sides at some point [cool]
