I see this thread is dead...but i am in the process of making all the movable parts from fiberglass for my ST165 and i can make also replicas for sale,as i will have the negatives.

For information of prices a hood will end-up to 100 euros,one complete door with all the holes and nuts in it to 120 euros and the hatch without the window also 120 euros.

First i will make mine and install them on my car to check all clearances then i can sell them but it's nice to know if there are people interested in order for me to buy more fiberglass at once...

for the most part that is not bad prices; the only pain is the shipping from Romania to anywhere in the states will likely be the deal killer for a lot of people sadly. luckily it is fiberglass so it doesn't weigh a lot; just is large in dimension.

Exactly that will be a major setback...
The doors are sized in a decent dimension but the hood and the hatch are a huge package in size.
Anyway i will make them as the inertia of this car is really a fun & handling killer and i want to bring the weight down without gutting the car

Oh great to hear that.
Now,I've striped down the passenger door from my spare-parts ST162 in order to make the negative and I've scaled the important parts :

Complete dor (without inside panel but including window,all the mechanism,hinges and the mirror) = 27 Kg
Striped down door (all that can be dismantled,I've toked off) = 13,3 Kg
Bare Glass window = 5 Kg
Mirror assembly (as it is unscrewing 3 screws) = 1,8 Kg

Hell yeah man, if you can get these doors down to work with all the window mechanics and everything id be down to buy a set, and as for hood maybe you should look in molding in some cs style venting while your making them, I would definitely be down for a vented fiberglass hood.... I get alot of heat under there with all my stainless.

not at the moment...will do but there are 2 flaps for aiding air out. The flow trough the radiator is increased and also the heat from the turbine exits the engine bay
