Mark 2 EGV and Mk3 Push-Pull stock

Hi guys,

I have some Hornby, Airfix and Lima Mark 2 air-cons I'm looking to convert and repaint into IE InterCity livery.  Please could anyone let me know which is the best source for an EGV conversion kit for these?  Similarly, does anyone have parts available for converting Lima Mk3 SO carriages into IE push-pull standards?

Thanks

Paul

I saw on Facebook a, couple of days ago that someone is 3d printing the plug doors for converting BR Mk3s into Irish ones.

Thank you all very much for your very kind and helpful replies.  I've been in touch with Midland Valenta 3D Prints via Facebook and the Lima Mk3 coach end is definitely something which will be included in my IE push-pull conversions.  I have four SOs I bought as "spares or repair" which are complete apart from ends and bogies, the latter isn't an issue, as I can either modify the coaches to take altered old Hornby bogies or use the Southern Pride bogie kits with them.  The set I'm intending to build will include the unique Cafe/Bar coach, which I intend converting from a Lima Mk3 TGS, but I'm not intending to go down the "straight repaint" route with that one, as it's incorrect to do it that way.  As I'm in the UK, I haven't a lot of information to hand about the Mk3 Cafe/Bar.

In addition, I've emailed Studio Scale Models regarding their Mk2 EGV conversion kit and Mk3 push-pull conversion parts/decals.  Just waiting a reply to that at the moment.

Just be warned 6402 was different to the other plug door vehicles. The actual door itself is the same but as it was a rebuild rather than built new their are differences. 6402 on the left

Connection between 6402 and 6314, 9/5/08
