Hi people

Just wondering, I'm looking into getting new body panels for my car for when I get it sprayed.
I'm after, bonnet, wings, rear bumper, boot, arch trims, door mirrors and other niggle bits.

The ones on this website are they a good fit I.e gm fitment? or are they not worth the hassle because there a awful fit.

Let me know cheers Kieran

If the panels on your car are GM, keep them. Any pattern panel will be thinner metal and would be better to keep to GM items imo.

Tom: il try vauxhall nearer the time then

main things I want is bonnet, arches, wings and bumpers. So should be ok to find them

Alan: because I would like new plastics and bumpers so I know a have all clips and don't need to worry when removing.

Also finding a new bonnet would be nice so I didn't have and rust bubbles at all

Would be curious to see how much GM wings are, I had pattern ones on the last paint job and they were never a great fit against the bonnet.

Fibre glass is too flimsy IMO, ok if it's not a everyday normal car and was just for say track or pod use.

Jr how much you after the bonnet? U2u me if you like
