What do you need from us to replicate a hood?

I assume you would need and old hood and the vehicle, obviously material etc. How do you fix the rear windows in?

Hi Paul, Please see below. Sorry they're not the clearest pictures, they were kind of point and pray. I checked the assembly manual (yep, kept it for 35 years) for the B+ and Malaga which, if my history is correct, morphed into the original Phaeton, and this indicates that the Imp front shocks are to be used on the rear unmodified. If you've got a different set up please ignore everything I've said!!

Hi Paul, Yes the rear shocks, my car uses the front coil over shocks from the Hillman Imp on the rear. I'll try and get a photo tonight.

Hi Paul, assuming you've got the same three trailing arms and panhard rod suspension, I replaced the rear shocks on my B plus earlier this year. They were Hillman Imp front shocks, I got them from a company called Protech Shocks

Hi everyone,recently bought myself a phaeton s2 and I am in the middle of restoring it, but it is missing a front valance and side curtains.does anyone know where to get these? and it does not matter what condition the side curtain are in as I am a trimmer by trade.any information about these cars would be useful at this stage.
