Hi , sorry for the late reply just been to SkegVegas for the weekend. I`m after the 6 pieces that go down the full length of the car, 3 each side. You don't happen to know off hand if the Type 3 Variants are the same size?

Front, door and rear wing trim same on 2-door cars and Variants. Obviously 4-door sedans are not (just the front wings).

I have a pair of rear wing beadings for Type 4, NOS. They are the same length as Type 3 but have the curve for the body at the rear. I think I have doors too, but I don't think they're NOS, maybe front wings. Send me the lengths and I'll measure what I have.
I'm near Bristol/Bath. Note the garage sale advertised in Bath - there may be plenty in Derek's items if not.

I would suggest a road trip to the Bath/Bristol area on 8/9 September then!
There's a huge heap/tangle of assorted trim at Dereks & it's a nice, easy half hour drive from Derek's to Dave's
First Type 4 owner to come to the sale, goes home with a car full
There are still a couple of nos air filter elements & nos sill trims

Cars just arrived , 2 door 412 estate and as requested the approx (got the body holes but not sure exactly where the trim starts or ends lol) trim measurements are as follows.
Front wing -127cm
Door -116cm
Back wing (2 pieces?) 89cm/65cm.
If anyone has the pieces and is willing to post that would be much appreciated

Hi Broady_6
I`m in S Yorks, if you could pick up the trim that would be great. Keep me informed please if you are going.
