    Replacement Front Wings

    I used rsbodypanels2012 on ebay about 6months ago. Now I did wait about 3 weeks, but it was worth it. The wings were a super fit, I cannot fault them and colour too (mine are black) - they also came waxoiled on inside. Given the age of these cars these wings will still outlast the rear panels...
