Any suggestions on where I could find a replacement grey A frame cover for a Familia 320?

If you cannot source - maybe https://haywardgrp.co.uk/grp-fibreglass-alterations/ would be worth a try.

What as is your van and do you have a photo as repair could be an option. I had some stress cracks on mine which I sorted, and pre-empted some that would follow.

Mine was quite badly damaged getting onto the ferry in Calais last weekend. Will try and find a way to repair at home rather than seek third party assistance. Anyone know the reference for the paint colour?

The design has altered over the years so it depends on the age of the van. A replacement may be available through a local dealership and there are a lot more of those these days.

If you are, as the name suggests, in the Isles then I'd say phone Kool Classics who seem to have a good thing going for all ages of vans and even though they're furthest from you (arguably), they'll probably be more willing to assist.

Agreed on Kool Classics - very helpful when I have contacted them. They are my nearest dealer, but over 100 miles away!

I have posted my solution elsewhere on the forum requesting interest in a checker plate replacement that I am considering marketing.

I need a minimum of 10 for production to begin with and the price would be £140 including P&P and VAT
This design fits my 2013 Triton. You would need to be sure it wa suitable for your model van as I would not be able to accept refunds.
PM me if interested.

Good idea if there are enough takers.

Any idea how much the metal version weighs, compared to the plastic original?

Could you post a link to your other post on here? I am very interested for my 2005 Triton (having knackered the plastic one on the ferry ramp last month), but I'd need some drawings/measurements to make sure it's the right size
