G'day to all Rovernetters,
                                       If you were to make up a 
lightweight wooden case for the hood (we are talking hypothetically 
here) and take the external measurements of said case. A phone around 
to  some freight forwarder  giving the  dimensions  should  be enough to 
achieve a quotable quote re costs.

By  the way folks when I was last on Rovernet .... upto end of  
2001..... I was at  home in South Australia driving a Silver Mink SD1  
3500  Van Den Plas .... a beautiful car!
I'm now living in Norwich (UK) where my sons attend uni and I drive a  
Nightfire Red  820 Vitesse Hatchback.... again a beautiful car, goes 
like the clappers. Though its interesting to note that where the SD1 had 
a brilliantly small  turning circle, the front wheel drive Vit has a 
turning circle like a bullock dray with a team of  8.  You can't beat 
rear wheel drive!

Mike   Vitesse    Norwich.
