Cantrails ?!

Post by LaurenRoseStrogen » Wed Jun 24, 2020 10:32 pm

Hi all, dunno if i shouldve posted this in another section so apologies if i have.

So restoring dads mini and i have all new panels etc that i need but the last things i need are the left and right cantrails. I realise these are not sold anymore and considered obsolete. Is there anywhere that would make them to order or is there anyone who would have two from a shell in good condition? I'm at a dead end right now because everything is ready to be started but cant until i get a hold of these!
Any help appreciated and thanks so much in advance!

I have never seen a car that needed new cantrails let alone two, I would be interested to see photos of the damage ones.
