Hi,

Has anyone got experience with using Austin Morris 1100 wheel arch panels as substitutes on Flavia Coupes?

I understand that the Austin panels are a good fit for the rear wings of the Flavia, but can they be adapted to work on the front wings too?

Failing that, can anyone recommend a panel beater who has experience of fabricating these panels?

Cheers

Why not save yourself the hassle and just buy a whole Morris 1100?  Grin

i've seen an aston martin bonnet that he made from scratch and it was very impressive but also expensive as you can imagine the amount of hours it would take to fabricate innner and outer skins, i have also seen bonnets that he's repaired and aprilia bootlids and the work was 1st class, my advice would be to send him the bonnet for repair,
