Thanks ....yes the grey beetle came with a set of 'day moulding' wings ...I hear a lot of good comments a bout the quality of these wings ...

In the case of my beetle ...originality has (sadly) gone , so fitting fibreglass wings is exceptable to me ....

Plus all the plates /filler gone ...replaced with thin cheap repair panels ,fiber glass wings ....the car should weigh less ....Cool ....

good for my little 1200 engine Cool

they'll need to be redrilled for wide trim anyway, won't they?

The crease looks like it lines up well.

Well spotted dude ....thanks ,I hadn't noticed that !! Shocked ...

however I did line up the swage line in the panels ....so if the trim holes are out , there is nothing I can do but to re-drill them ....I guess its just pattern parts Rolling Eyes
