Recommended panels ?

Postby doenut82 » 12 Feb 2017, 10:13

Can anyone recommend which panels are the good panels to use on complete panel replacements on nsr. Also looking at replacing both outer sills , osr lower arch and both inner rear plates .
Is there differences in suppliers and original VW to patent parts.
Cheers, Adam.

Hmmm silence :lol:
N/S & O/S rear
for arches then schofieelds (and others) do a very good rear arch, lovelly fit and decent steel with good definition.
tall rear wings are all klocker quality and a last resort unless someone knows better, personally im looking at forming the loower part of the wing to meet the arch as the rest above is usually good.
very lower 1/4's they all seem much of a muchness and soon tweak to fit.
again i use schofields but others also supply the above.
the lower bottom of the rear 1/4 -corners are quite good and the outer lip part of the rear tray are reasonable as well.
outer sill then again oe are available but i dont use them as they are not applicable for many repairs and the aftermarket ones are fairly good in definition and fit.
i make my own lower fridge panals but these are now available but as far as i know only spotted to the outer sill .again this can be handy but i would rather assemble mmy own way for many reasons.
inner sills, i have a few OE and havent used the pattern ones as they are usually easier to repair then completely remove unless the van is well well shot as the sunnyvagon was on one side :lol:
hope it helps a bit

Vw classic are re making rear arches are they not? Brickwerks have/had those and they looked very good...schofeelers stuff is improving , klokkerholm is quite poor generally and the front arches are literally hilarious !

Talk to school fields ....if he can help nobody can.

I get the front and rear arches from schofields and they are mint and with regard to the fronts I would as soon fit them as the genuine and often do

The best archs other than original, front and rear are distributed in the uk by magnum panels. I believe Brickwerks,Schofields etc sell these. I think they are made by BBT from Belgium.
