repair panels

Post by markp38 on Thu Mar 28, 2013 7:40 am

Hi All
is there someone on line who sells repair panels?
I need to repair the front top mount wheel arches, one of its previous owners has done some very poor repairs that need replacing (someone welded a repair panel/ scabby metal off cut over rot and tacked it to the wing doh), i will make my own if need be but thought i would ask.

Thatchem don't say for the inner wing, but I'm sure it's not bolt on.

Thought you ment the inner wing was a bolt on pannel Smile

The outer outer wings are bolt on with a bit of glue.

Now I'm home I see what you mean... outer and inner wing welded together.

Found this but maybe overkill

You can always cut a rustfree section out of a clean uk car from a breaker yard for about £30. As long as it's rust free your just swapping one genuine Fiat part for another. I wouldn't get involved in changing the whole front suspension turret/inner wing it'd be a nightmare job and costly.

I'd give the rest of the car a good look over to see if there are any other areas that have been plated over.

As Kryten from Red Dwarf would say:

A great idea Sir, but just two possible problems. 1. Finding a Uno in a car breaker, and 2. Finding a rust free Uno in a car breaker.
