Recommended Posts

Looks like youve got a good shell there, makes it a lot easier and you will be done quicker than you think.

Good luck, will be watching this...:thumbup:

nice one! Good to know that another "more door" is being rebuilt. :thumbup:

 

Aeroflow rear bumper and irons?

 

Sadly you are a couple of weeks too late, i just sold my new Mk1 owners club A post lower repair panels i had left over from my resto to a club member in Ireland (Peter)....Club don't sell them any more, just the whole A post panel for mucho bucks.

 

like other people have said, we all have spare bits flying around, get a list together!

 

The rear bumper...this is the info I'm after...what are the differences???

 

I will compile a list when I know a bit more!! Cheers

different brackets and mounting hole spacing - if its a good bumper I wouldnt worry about it, though someone might want to swop .

Well Wayne has got into the car a bit more...gutted as I cant get up there at the moment so I feel I am missing out..The pics aren't great though as it has uncovered some previous work and rust!

So it looks as though I need inner and outer sills and rear arch repair panels to start with! :unsure:

What's the plans for it? Or is it going to be a suprise?

Not sure Dan, I suppose it depends on how much I need to spend on panels! :thumbup:

rear bumper seems correct for a B-reg car,as it has the later rear panel as well, only the early ones had the narrower holes (in fact there is 3 different saloon types and 2 estates as far as i know, though the most common ones are yours and this):
