I use Sunbeam Classic Spares (Chris and Julie Draycott).

Unless you can get hold of original panels then all pattern panels may be slightly off, even a wing for a Ford Capri won't fit as well as an original from Ford.

I've just had to replace umpteen bits on my Tiger trying to put right 50 years of botched jobs. The body shop I use are top notch and they thought the panels were acceptable. Just a shame we can't get full rear wings.

I have a good original o/s rear wing if you need one? Square corners but easy enough to modify to round.
