Hi, does anyone know if the rear wheel arch part of the rear winch has the same profile (wheel arch shape/radius suage lines etc.? So that it could be used as a reoair panel. My guess is that it is the same since I think the suage lines are the same. Thanks Alan

I'm not sure if you mean to use a Dolomite repair panel on a Toledo or visa versa, but the swage lines differ between Toledo and Dolomite rear wings. Using a (now rare) Dolomite repair panel on a Toledo would end up looking rather odd, and cutting up a Toledo wing to fit on a Dolomite would also look wrong.

It's probably better to use the club wheel arch repair panels for the appropriate model, than modify an incorrect panel.

As an example I placed one of my (non club) Dolomite rear wheel arch repair panels against my Toledo as shown below, it looks wrong in my opinion.

The Rear Wings Are Differant. The Toledo is The Same as a Triumph 1300 FWD
