Early MK2 Front Wings - Can bodykit be fitted?

Post by daveyheats » Mon Mar 21, 2022 12:07 pm

Morning all,
I bought a pair of replacement front wings for my MK2 Scala, as the originals were rusted beyond use. The pair I've bought are from an early MK2 that didn't come with the bodykit.

My question is, can these older wings be modified to fit the bodykit? Were they the same shape, but without the holes for the kit to attach to? Or were they a completely different shape?

Thanks for any info.

It’s doable, I’ve offered the Body kit from a Scala up to my early GL and the only problem I can see is the holes around the arches.
The early wings don’t have enough depth to the lip to use the original fixings but it’s these points that normally start the rot.
