Why not lay up some fibreglass on the original with plenty of release agent then lay up copy boot liners from the mould? One side will be a bit rougher but iff you use fibreglass cloth and not CSM it'll be much better. Black gel coat?

I'd do it if I had a boot liner...

You could have a burgeoning business idea here reproducing all these parts.


God yes - far too big to print....even in sections. It would cost a fortune. But vac-forming them, now that might work.

As for business ideas, I just look at the part and wonder "can it be reproduced cost effectively", especially if it is NLA. Like the carpet retaining clips you needed for the Green Daimler : these can very easily be reproduced by 3D printing.....all I need is a good enough example to 3D scan. If I can collect enough of these smaller parts to scan in then the cost will be minimal.

Has anyone ever seen one of these boot liners for X300 before?
My first one just arrived last weekend.
It seems reasonable quality.

That looks great. I assume no part number on the old sticker? I have one for XJS and they are very useful.
