trucknvans.com has their own set of molds, and makes every part to order. I could be wrong, but I believe that Showcars in Canada has the J&J gullwing molds, plus the molds that were made to do the tilt noses. I talked to them on the phone a couple years ago, and they said they could do gullwings for any van application. They have one on ebay they've been trying to sell forever, and it looks to be an exact match to the J&J style doors.

Unfortunately, several people here have had bad dealings with Showcarz, and they've become an unreliable source.

The J&J molds ,all of them except the Dodge van mudder flair molds are in Dayton Ohio. Stacked in a garage collecting dust. some people have used doors to clone a mold but that is risky because the doors are not stable enough to support the heat of the mold bieng made without some distortion.


Cheers!

to my understanding scott from bluegrass knows who has the those missing dodge molds. they're here in louisville in the possession of someone who was good friends with joe. We were talking about trying to get a hold of them lately.


I go to Truck-ins. How about you?

Phoenix, when you say Dayton, would that be Spider's place? I was under the impression that Spider finally got rid of them, after trying to sell them for years, but I always get second hand information, being so far from the loop now.
