Boy that comes into work done a few of the works rally cars and that, he's going to paint it for free ive just got to buy the paint and in exchange im changing the engine in his mk2 golf. He said he can paint it perlesent white so its got a hint of blue in it in certain lights, So thinkin that'll look pretty smart ive just got to get a heap of bits for the engine now and do that at the same time.

Mine cost 23 pounds each, so I doubt original suzuki and fit better than the originals...of course the originals may have had a hard life. I aslo replaced the bonnet to as it was bent furter evidence of time misalignment.
look here for fit

Got it from Typhoon along with plenty of other bits, had a few small dents which are now repaired awaiting painting.
The last photo is what it was like you can just see the dent halfway up passeger side
