Aftermarket body panels

Post by TifosiKev » Wed Mar 16, 2016 10:49 pm

Evening all,

I probably know the answer before asking the question but here goes. Does anyone know if you can get such a thing as rear wheel arch repair panel. Just considering the options whether to repair or replace.

Thanks very much for the links. I thought I would be asking the impossible. No doubt I shall have to ask more questions in future. Thanks again.

Hi Ben, et. al,

Have you fitted your W&T panels since then? What are your experiences?

I am asking because i am also about to purchase a rear panel set from these guys.

Thanks!

The post is nearly 4 years old.
I would PM Ben, he may not be current on the site.

There has been discussion on this board, in the past, as to the quality of these repair sections. Some say that the quality of the stampings is not so good and the dies are worn out. The fact of the matter is that unless you can find some really old sections, there is no alternative.
