    My Mercedes is suffering from the off-side front wing rust issue, it has been repaired before but I was just looking at the possibility of a new front wing ? is that still possible ? are there any fabricators making patten parts .

    The rust is mainly by the arch extending to the light section.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Trying to locate an off-side front wing for my SL280 1997 is hard, Ive had options but they have the same amount of rust ! I wonder how many R129's were sold and does anybody patten the bodywork ? was there any changes on the R129 to the front wings?

    Seems to be a regular problem ?

    Thanks

    Good point, I didn't think they would have any stock parts but will try.

    Many Thanks
