    Hi mate, the stuff they sell is good, may need a little tweek here and there but alot better than rusty inner wings patched all over the place, But be prepared to wait, phoned them up for some mk1 capri wings and it was going to be three months from order for delivery! cheers

    I bought a lot of stuff of expressed panels. The Mk1 door skins were crap, the pressing detail just wasn't there...

    I bought 2 inner wing tops. The RHS fitted well near the screen, but at the front it was poor. The LHS was a poor fit by the screen, but much better at the front.

    Have you put the slam panel on yet? If you look at the last picture the LH inner wing top at the front runs up hill, where as the RH one is much flatter - this is the problem that I had.
