Question V70 Phase 1 front wings needed

I have one rusty RH-side and one probably salvageable LH-side front wing on my 98 V70 and I'm after replacements for one or both, in Caspian blue if possible. I'm near Reading but willing to travel; can anyone help?

A mate of mine is breaking one with what appear to be excellent wings however they are a coppery gold colour (very unusual but lovely colour!)

If they would be of interest drop me a pm with a number and I'll pass it on.

They are in N Ireland though so would need to price a courier.

As another option try Dumfries Volvo Spares. They are on Ebay as Awesometwosome. I've bought several items from them over the years for several cars and always had excellent service.

Cheers

As I posted above regarding the wings, Mirror is there also, if your backing is good they can be switched over.

Thanks NI_Volvo_Nut, I haven't posted enough to get PM unlocked yet, so if you would PM me the contact details I'll chat regarding how I might pick up the wing.

Thanks Dave

If you ever need to ship a wing then nip round to the local cycle shop and see if you can liberate the type of box in which bikes are shipped. They're exactly the right size and shape, and are pretty robust.

The two or three times I've found myself in this position one of these cycle boxes has done the job perfectly.
