front inner wings

Recommended Posts

I started chopping the rot out in the engine bay on the drivers side and discovered i need a replacement turret top and inner wing / wheel tub.

 

Looking on rimmers rb7356 seems close but looks too narrow.  Is this the correct piece?

I need a wheel arch outer aswell but i know which panel that is.

Have you tried Steve at S&S, or spoken to Robsport?

Are you after the panel that on a modern car is usually called the arch liner?

Only you can know for sure if that is the panel you need  but that could be the angle of the image making it look narrower than it is.

I'd also have my doubts as it is called a repair panel, that suggests it might not be the full panel.

Give them a call, or one of the other suppliers mentioned above.

Am I right that it's called a flitch panel?

Not normally, a flitch panel is a supporting panel which fits inside a fabrication. It can be as large as a girder or C section shape,  if a chassis on a truck or car was cut through, after it was butt welded back up a flitch panel or section would be welded within the chassis overlapping the butt weld strengthening the section (then typically stronger than the original section).

Try Robsport, Simon's panels normally fit reasonably well.

i saw it on robsport but i think it was £170 and that's just too much considering i could fabricate something suitable. unfortunately this restoration has a small budget so i'll only buy panels that i cant fabricate.
