Type 3 Fender repair panels

Just been looking through Ebay.de and found a member who is making and selling repair panels for fenders. Quality un-known but from repairs I have made they look like they would be useful. http://stores.ebay.de/Typ-3-Konny/Reparaturbleche-/_i.html?_fsub=11282039 Nice NOS Inner fender as well! Andy

Re: 69 Heater Channel Repair

I didn't paint the doors or the rear wings as you probably can see in the side view of the car. If you are going to repaint the whole car i'd probably opt for 2K as its more durable but I found 1K fine.
