They have been up for sale for years, never heard of anyone fitting them though.

Made strange reading revisiting this thread, how times and circumstances have changed over only a couple of years. The pair of wings I had ready to go on were just not good enough, looks like they deteriorated in storage so are being cut up for repair panels. Also my fussiness over the side repeater aperture probably cost me a cheap pair of new wings, lesson learned, stop being too fussy.

So after another few months of looking I managed to get a almost new passenger wing off Naki which he still has in storage for me, courier issues, see later point. Then while looking for a badge I amazingly found a new drivers wing for less than £180 delivered, earlier repeater aperture, but as I said I learnt my lesson and will alter it to fit my 94 repeaters.

So said new wing arrived and it was very slightly damaged, not happy but I can repair it hopefully easily. So with regard to the courier problem, most of them ( including Parcelforce who brought mine ) now will not insure body panels due to the amount of them being damaged in transit. So if you do find a wing and get a courier make sure they will insure it for damage in transit.

To prove my point I recently posted a Citroen wing to Oz ( long story.....) and it came back to me marked as prohibited item. :o

So keep looking, they are out there just getting rarer.

Hi Don hope you are well. I have two good wings in my garage, or at least they were when I covered them up 10 years ago???

Old thread, but if anyone has a set of fibreglass front wings (or can put me in contact with the chappy that makes them) I'd be very grateful! Went to buy a set from Jagspares only to find they'd sold out.
