mark clapp Hi Guys and Gals, I see it's been a while so I just wanted to say that I'm still making the light covers for G-nose Zs and quarter windows for all 240/260/280Zs out of crack-proof plastic. Email me at: [email protected] with any questions and feel free to call anytime at: 816-286-6982 to talk about your car and the plexi pieces.


Thanks,
Mark Clapp

mark clapp Hi G-nose owners, I see that I haven't posted in a while but I am still making the light covers and quarter windows for the G-nose Zs in crack-proof plastic. The prices are the same since I joined in 2012. If anyone could use these parts, please email me at: [email protected] or call anytime at: 816-286-6982 with any questions.


Thanks,
Mark Clapp

Thanks,

mark clapp Hi Tom,
I do still make the light covers for the G-nose Zs and would be glad to make you a pair. I'm still asking $189 USD/pair and the shipping to Australia would be $30. I have shipped several pairs to Australia with no problems. The shipping to New York would be $20 so not much difference there but either way is fine. I make them in OE size to use with the trim rings or in a smaller radius for a flush fit with the light bucket edges. For these I also include L-braces made from the same crystal clear plastic to mount the covers with. You can Paypal to my email address: [email protected] Please email me if you have any other questions.

Thanks so much,
Mark Clapp

I supply several replica manufacturers like Race Car Replicas and restoration shops that restore original GT40s and Jaguars. I recently started making the headlight covers for the 240/260/280Z G-nose cars. The plastic I use is shatter proof and will not crack so rocks/road debris are no problem. Also you do not need special drill bits as for acrylic; any old bit will cut fine with no cracking. I also include L-braces cut from the same crystal clear plastic to mount the covers with. From a distance, the L-braces disappear and the covers look like they are floating on the car. I've attached pictures of the covers to show the terrific clarity and luster of the plastic. I'm asking $189USD/pair. My email address is: mclapp1(at)att(dot)net and feel free to call me anytime at: 816-286-6982.

Hi Mark

Are you still making these? (240ZG acrylic headlight covers)

How much are they now?

Have you shipped any to Australia?

I am over in New York later in the year so may be able to get them sent there

look forward to hearing from you.

regards

mark clapp Hi everyone. I haven't posted in a while but I am still making the light covers for G-nose cars. I've attached photos of some of my covers fitted to a nice G-nose Z. The owner added some chrome trim to get the look of the trim rings. I'm not going anywhere so if you could use some down the road don't hesitate to email me at: [email protected] or call me anytime at: 816-286-6982 with any questions.


Thanks,
Mark Clapp

mark clapp Hi Guys and Gals, I just wanted to post that I'm still making headlight covers for G-nose Zs. The addition of light covers is a great winter project. I can make them in the OE size to fit over the light buckets for use with the trim rings or in a smaller radius for a flush fit to the edges of the light openings. Feel free to email me anytime at: [email protected] or give me a call at: 816-286-6982.

I love the color of your Z !.....it looks spectacular !......
