Impressed with the quality of fibreglass wind deflectors (NoseCone) fitted to their fleet Fielders requested NoseCone develop a lightweight panellised body for local delivery vehicles to keep to the Class 1 Licence requirement. Ryman Composites (then known as NoseCone Manufacturing) in conjunction with Dow Chemical developed a panel body kit using in house manufactured FRP skins and 12mm Dow Styrofoam™ core.
