    Body panels

    Hi guys,

    Finally getting round to having the rado resprayed after 7 years of saying it needed doing. My sprayer has asked about source a new bonnet and drivers wing if possible. I did mention they are rarer than unicorn poo. But if anyone has some lying around please send me a PM. Vr6 panels required.

    Thanks

    You should note that there are subtle differences in the wing designs between early and late cars (iirc?) So you might need to be more specific in your request. Some VR6s may have left the factory with early wings. I don't remember if there's bonnet differences too or not.

    I think all VR6s had the slightly raised bonnet in the centre.

    VR6 bonnets slightly raised in centre
    ____-----____

    Early bonnets dipped slightly in the centre.
    ----____----

    Wings there's roughly a difference of 10mm between the width of later and early wings.

    Si
    Had MK2 1.8 Scirocco Scarla 1998 to 2002
    had it lowered on original wheels,
    K&N air fitler and Janspeed exhaust system.


    Now have 94 M reg Corrado 2.0 16v since 2002 still got it,
    been off the road now since early 2015
    hoping to get it finished this year.

    Also have a 2015 Seat Ibiza TSI i-tech as my daily driver.

    as far as i know the bonnet & wing differences are only split between early or late models

    early models have a dip in the middle of the bonnet whereas late models have a raised middle. (i have an early 16v & a late VR)

    late models have the slightly flared front & rear arches.

    i dont believe the early VR's had the raised middle bonnet but i cant confirm
    Bramber metallic VR6 bring on the grins as the VR sings!!!!

    All VRs had the raised bonnet, it was to provide clearance for the larger engines, other late models had it fitted because it was then the only bonnet that was being made.

    Bonnets seem to be still available from Classic Parts, but at some price - also not sure if this one is late or early from the picture:

    Front wings are different, late are wider. The rear outer skin is the same on all years, but the inner section is different.
