Is a good used one OK?

 

If it's solid Keith, the one on my car is solid but a bit twisted. Is it full length from jacking point to rear valance ?

Actually i'm begining to wonder if mine can be repaired, Picture shows the chassis rail compared to the straight one on the drivers side, top arrow shows a kink and the bottom arrows show how the bottom of the chassis rail has been twisted across towards the right

usually when chassis legs are bent in this way its because its had a bump on  the end of the chassis leg at the back and if you try to fit a new section it won't fit because the boot floor will be bent as well and the profile of the chassis will now be different to the floor unless you give it a pull, it won't be apparent to the naked eye but it will be there.

Your right, rear n/s corner took a hit, i have a new (good 2nd hand) n/s rear wing boot floor upper and lower panels going back on.
