Nice, very strange how it's only the left hand side available. Seems like Poland must of bought a lot of old presses or stock of our beloved calibra......

Right got a Omega b drivers side back plate....and used a app on my phone to add a pencil outline....and took some measurements



Also if you REALLY wanted new ones the only place i can find them is....RUSSIA £150 PER SIDE posted via DHL lol Polish sites list them but there out of stock on most sites.


So the only option at the moment is to make them....

It was a real shame we missed those new ones that came up for sale a few weeks ago, I would imagine we could on made moulds out of them and got production on line in no time at all........ maybe?
