    Vinyl Rear Quarter Panels on Series 1

    Learn something new everyday! Thanks Vern. Appreciate you pointing those out John. A good idea to reseal quattro, thanks as well.

    Vinyl Rear Quarter Panels on Series 1

    Good suggestion but I find it much easier to just buy the fancy bits rather than tackle that mystery leak! Then there's those 200 quid mud flaps with the fancy insignia I bought...sigh

    Vinyl Rear Quarter Panels on Series 1

    Thanks for the response Harvey. Will have to think about that. I also ordered a seat base so will at least need to remove that part. Like I mentioned, everyone knows these cars are best left to the handy.

    Great photo, looking so sharp! Really appreciate the positive response to my question, just bought panels from Pierre at Rover Parts in UK, great supplier for these cars and I believe well known here. I hope to post a photo once they arrive, Cheers!

    Vinyl Rear Quarter Panels on Series 1

    Now, that makes me feel better. I am just being "forward thinking" by putting the quarter panels on a Series 1. I just love the look of vinyl? Thanks all, from a novice in the states.

    Vinyl Rear Quarter Panels on Series 1

    I thought so, let me tell you about the time I exploded my other one by repairing a fuel leak with crazy glue! Some people should just not be trusted with these precious cars.

    Ha, it is my car, so why not. I like the look so we'll call it a "modification." Cheers for the replies.

    Vinyl Rear Quarter Panels on Series 1

    Would it be wrong to install the vinyl quarter panels on a 1968 2000 auto? According to the ebay listing they were on the later models. Thanks for the advice.

    Rear Vinyl Quarter Panels for Series 1 2000

    I am thinking of adding the black vinyl quarter panels to my 1968 2000 auto. Is it incorrect for a Series 1? I had read they were only on the later models according to ebay seller voking2000. Thank you for the advice.
