Hi, not been on here for a while, very nice project. I have a similar body kit for my 126. My problem is I’m not sure which is the best way to attach or bond it to the existing body. How did you do it as it looks fantastic. So far I have lowered the 126, fitted discs to the front and replaced the roof with one from a vw which has a steel sun roof. I will need to put up a build thread soon. Any guidance on attaching the kit would be appreciated.

Thanks Ralph

Sorry chap, I paid someone to fit it, but what I can tell you the front wings were taken of and replaced and the backs were bonded on to the original steel wings

Hi, thanks for the reply, I intend to bond them on but unsure whether I would need some mechanical fixing to stop cracking after a few months of driving. I will need to start a build thread at some time.
