Trying to gauge serious interest for a repro SQ grille, should it become 
available.  Rich is first in line, but I wanted to find out if there was 
other interest.

Basically, it boils down to this...I've provided my extant copy to make a 
mold.  The company doing this is EuroSport Rally, out of NYC.  Andrew and 
his father own the shop and are avid rally racers in N.A., and have proven 
themselves(to me, at least), to be excellent fabricators and all-around good 
guys.  They are making a mold/copy for themselves and a couple for me so 
I'll have extree if something cataclysmic(heaven forbid), should occur to my 
current unit.  The opportunity exists for cost-effective pieces to be 
produced for those interested, IF there is enough interest.  Price is YTBT, 
from what I understand, so I can't really comment.  Andrew can be reached at 
info at eurosportrally.com , and I'm sure he can answer any questions you might 
have about the process/cost.  Andrew is using wet layup with epoxy resin on 
the SQ hoods that he and Ben Abraham have produced(which, by the way, fit 
stock UrQ's and the itty bitty fenders/grille), so I imagine the process 
will be similar with the grille.  Ask him about the hoods if you're 
interested, as well.  They are VERY high quality from what I have seen, are 
two-piece(top and bottom glued/epoxied together), and each section is made 
from 3 layers of fiberglass.  Hood comes primed and ready to paint, and is 
in the neighborhood of $1300, IIRC.  Grille inserts are not included, but 
Andrew can source them or you can make your own. I stand to gain nothing 
from this, except helping out a friend, FWIW.  Just sharing my enthusiasm. 

FWIW, I've inquired about alternative construction material(Cabon Fiber), 
and I encourage those interested to do the same w/r/t the grille, and 
possibly the hood.  The existing FG molds can be used, and I would prefer 
the stronger material, personally.  If enough interest is there, I think he 
would do it on a larger scale.
