They look nice and solid John, don't matter if they are originals or not, so long as you can tweek them to fit.

I'm going to paint the curve of fixed nuts above the left rear arch in Chassis black to keep the oxygen out and corrosion at bay. Black where it won't show. Then clean them all out with the cut bolt.

the wing painted on it's inside surface with chassis black, hopefully this will help extend it's life.

I was thinking of doing that too. Mostly to save expensive automotive paint

Do you know john, that is a remarkably simple but good point, why not colour code the vehicle, everything underneath or out of sight= chassis black, leaving less painted surfaces to be covered in as you say, expensive auto paint colour. Love it.

That is the rear wings fitted, for now, I've ordered two front wings from my local Heritage center and a roll of wing to arch gasket.

click and collect that and the two front wings, on special offer, £80 each for Galvanised wings.

the right wing hooked up out of the way while I deal with the left side.

the left wing trial fit, a lot of hard work getting that to fit well ahead. step by step and lots of tea breaks, before the tension gets too much to bear and items find themselves moving at high speed toward an immovable object, like the workshop wall.
