Whitepointer's fibreglass work is good quality but the mould they they make their nosecone from is a long way from perfect.  Both sides are shaped differently and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't get it to sit square on the chassis so I had to slice the passenger side open and spread it by about 20mm to get an acceptable fit.  This was not caused by my joining it down the middle and it's disapointing to pay so much for a product and then spend so much time rectifying manufacturing problems.
