Thread: Drivers Wing Swap

    Drivers Wing Swap

    Hi all,
    I recently picked up a rust free drivers side wing for my VR6 but it looks like it is an early wing as the flared arch isnt as big as the ones on the car. I was wondering if there is anyone in a similar situation who had picked up a drivers wing for an early car and ended up with a later wing. If so then would you be interested in a swap. Failing that ill have to put it on the car well i send mine away to get repaired.

    Ty In advance

    I feel for you matey. Spent a lot of time and money on getting parts for my car only to get them home and find that my original joy at getting said part was misplaced, frustration follows the joy shortly after. That’s part of Corrado ownership. Highs and lows. The highs out way the lows though unless you don’t learn fast or can’t remember stuff. Having said that in the heat of the moment it’s hard to get your act together on something that’s not your everyday carry off. Good late wings are hard to come by though, have you tried lilfuzzer on here or put a wanted advert up.
    4th one surely the last

    Hello,
    I would be interested in a swop. I bought an early corrado bit it has a later drivers wing. The flare is bigger than the passenger side and overhangs the earlier bumper. What's your location pal?
    Thanks Andy

    Hi Andy,
    I'm based in greenock Scotland, I'm still unsure what this drivers wing is actually off. I have four wings in my loft and I measured them all with a tape measure and I measured the ones on the car and they were all the same even though they look different which is strange. I measured the side of the wing from the top edge were the rubber is for the bonnet to rest on to the edge of the arch and its 28cm, the top of the arch to the bottom is 12cm. Can you measure both of your wings, the early and the late wing to see if you get different measurements or if both are the same. Don't want to swap you a late wing for a late wing as that would be pointless. I need to make sure if it's an early or late. If your on what's app PM me your number and I can send you some pics you can compare with the wing on your car.
