That's one awesome car RetroZed. I like the body-coloured flares in particular, more restrained than the usual black. It's a credit to you.
Well we can only hope that Dynacorn start making panels and body shell components (and perhaps complete body shells) for S30s like they do for early Mustangs and others. However, the problem is supply and demand, there were far more Mustangs produced in the first place than S30s and the Mustang hobby in the USA and worldwide is huge. Movies like the 2000 re-make of 'Gone in 60 Seconds' with Cage and Jolie and its other star the '67 Shelby-like 'Eleanor' movie car creation did a lot to exacerbate demand for replicas and the re-manufacture of OEM parts not just for the '67/68 fastback but other early models. To complicate things for the S30 hobby there are numerous variations of the body shell, but if they did just the main loose panels it would help no end. Trouble is, a manufacturer would need an order for many hundreds of any one item just for it to be economic.
PS. if you enjoy car chase movies then get hold of the original 1973 Halicki movie 'Gone in 60 Seconds', which used just one 'Eleanor', a '71 Mustang fastback. Old school movie filmed long before computer generated special effects, with a very long entertaining car chase, and car jump near the end shown in slow motion. Surprisingly, the car survives today with the film-maker's widow - he was killed while making another movie. Halicki had bought the car new, pulled it all apart and strengthened the body shell for the intended stunt work.
The 2000 re-make has the same theme of 'boosting' (stealing to order) cars, but they used and abused some 11 cars during production of which only some survived.
