Was looking on http://www.carpanels.co.uk and was wondering if anyone has ever bought any items of them. Im after two wings for my Kadett but aren't too sure about how well they will fit, ive heard of some horror aftermarket panels. Any feedback would be appreciated!

they should be ok as i'm pretty sure the Kadett stuff is imported from Europe. have you tried Dr. Manta's website? the genuine stuff is expensive but OEM stuff will fit without problems.

Hadrian Panels head office is just two miles up the road from me here in Fourstones. I was planning to go up with the Chevette and entice them into making wings for me. I think their stuff is ok, but I've tried contacting them several times with no reply.

Is this one of those situations where a list of potential orderees would help? Didn't do a fat lot of good with exhaust manifolds but I reckon you might get enough interest in wings! I'm sure I remember having a chat with someone about their brother (or was it brother-in-law) working for Hadrian - was it you Mark?

I have a funny feeling it was Mark.

Good thinking Ralph - if I had a promise of say a dozen pairs of wings they might consider setting up the tooling.

Final verdict then, go for it?

Yes it was me and a big order might get them moving on this one. How about getting them to do the front panel to while we are at it.??

Put me down for a set of front wings and a front panel.

Hadrian are extremely good - and I have had no problems with them contacting me, and vice versa.

I've used the panels on my rebuild without any problems :)

just don't buy the rear arch panels they are utter sh*te. its easier to use the oppersite front arch. their panels are the wrong shape altogether and the body line is in the wrong place,

Thought the arches were pretty spot on personnally. That was before I got my hands on them tho...

I got a set of their sills in the garage, not fitted yet but they appear decent.

Really easy to get hold of the company and first class delivery exactly when I wanted them. All at a fraction of the price that some muppets try and charge on eBay
