X100 Lower Rear Wing Repair Panel
After several months of discussing, researching and producing the required tooling for this part I am pleased to announce the availability of this Jaguar XK8 XKR (X100) lower rear wing repair panel. As many owners will know this is a notoriously bad area on the car for corrosion. Condensation can build on the inside of the panel and will run down to sit and stay in the bottom lip of the panel. Also the exterior of the panel behind the rear wheels is exposed to dirt and dampness thrown up by the rear wheels. The bottom section of the panel is attacked from both sides with corrosion running from behind the rear wheel to the the area underneath the rear lights. With these steel bodied cars getting older it is likely that many cars will already of had problems or the problems are just waiting to surface (literally !) See below.
In the past the repair options have been to either make repairs to this area of the car or replace the whole quarter panel parts at high cost.

For those panels that are available add to their high cost the many labour hours of specialised time to firstly remove the old quarter panel and then fit the new quarter panel to the inner structure
As no repair panels have been available to date owners and body work specialists have had to fabricate repairs welding in many sections of metal to try and replicate the general curvature of the panel which curves at the bottom of the wing and then round to underneath the light area. We have seen repairs to wings looking like a patchwork quilt of metal sections. Large amounts of body filler are then used to try and reproduce the general shape.
For this reason we have produced this semi hand crafted repair panel based on tooling that in turn has been based on the genuine Jaguar panels.
* the panel has been designed to repair just the area most susceptible to corrosion
* considerably reduced parts cost
* considerably reduced labour costs
* welding reduced to a minimum results in improved longevity of the repair
* reduced amount of body filling to ensure a perfect finish
PLEASE NOTE - due to the curvature in the bottom of the rear wing of the Jaguar XK8 and R model, the panels are difficult to make and can be difficult to fit requiring the skills of an experienced panel beater. Some people will either use the whole panel or use sections of it as required. The panel can save a lot of time (and money) in not having to fabricate panel sections for this area of the car.
The part numbers for each handed side are:
* DCRJP1119 RH Panel
* DCRJP1120 LH Panel
Price of wheel arch repair panel is £145.00 + shipping and VAT each
