Dude, it will already be difficult to find an original Shires and seedtrays... finding an original Sonix will probably be impossible.

I am not english, difficult for me to maintain a conversation at the telephone, the seller will think "who is this guice?" xD

If someone of Uk want to contact im to see if like seed trays are the original, we could all of us have original seed trays parts, and cheap

 

I will make photo of the red parts, with dimension and type of fabric  , not difficult to reproduced it

I also have these on my list but like you i haven't pulled the trigger yet since the provided pictures aren't really conclusive. 

Maybe a UK based member could arrange a group buy....

Nice, keep it coming....

 

 

Btw.: I recognized you have three red backpack straps on your frame... since two are screenaccurate, would you consider selling the spare one to me?

Unfortunately my frame came with the wrong colored straps. Let me know...

I'd be still interested, better than building a replica... depending o shipping costs...

Where do you come from? Let it be Europe...

Should not be over difficult to make. Appears like it is nylon. I would add eyelets as to not rip the nylon where the cordage goes through.
