How to repair / replace rear wheel arches + back corners

Post by art-b » Wed Aug 16, 2017 10:34 pm

Hi,

My mk2's rear arches + back corners are badly rusted. Does anyone know where to get replacement parts? If actual Scirocco mk2 parts are unavailable would some other model parts be suitable replacements?

Thanks,

Artturi

several years ago my scirocco was destined for the scrapyard, so me and my mate took an angle grinder to the rear panels, seeing at the time how much he had ( and at times still does ) help me out with various things, i gave them to him. he is currently in the process of grinding the old ones off to get to clean metal and welding my old ones onto his. i do have some pics of this, but unsure where they are atm.

There was some repo panels available from the Netherlands, blueshark did have some so might be worth PM him to see if he can still get the parts you need.
Some repair panels are available at vw heritage.

We ended up getting some sheet metal and making our own as we couldn't afford /didnt have time to order the replica arvhes from another country.
Was a pretty hard job but it passed the mot!! ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
