    Guess what I spent today doing? Ended up having to weld the wing edge to get the door gap right, that’s the price you pay (literally) for pattern parts.

    think these days the pattern ones are Magnum .. popular feed back is they dont really fit that well ..
    shame that ESP sell them on an agency basis.. when you would expect them to supply far better kit themselves..
    most of the folk in the know appear to prefer trying to use either the originals repaired or good second-hand ones to effect a repair ..

    one thing for sure - I am glad I cannot weld or do any meaningful bodywork, but have met some wonderful guys who can ..

    Bag of worms time! I will always use brand new steel. It is just how you fit whatever pattern part you are replacing 40 year old tin with. Finn.
