Re: Aftermarket body panels

Pattern parts are very hit and miss,in my experience they are definately more a miss.

A second hand genuine wing in good condition should cost no more than the quote you were given for a new pattern one,and it's the same amount of work to paint a new panel that is to paint a second hand one.

You could try an online parts finder to source a panel in the same colour,it's got to be worth a try.
