Alien Cowl

Has anyone got a genuine alien cowl, tray and skirt for an XR2? (to comply with the 3c class rules)

I've got a genuine cowl you could have, but it's not an alien.

Thanks for that Mat, but it was to allow fitting a 200xs powerhead at a later date... does it not have to be the alien one to allow this?

You will also need the exhaust tuner, a sportsmaster gearbox, blanking plate for the offshore mid, wiring loom and oil tank.
