Front Wing Side Panels - Interchangable?


Recommended Posts

Just looking at wing bits at the moment. Does anyone know if the side wing panels are interchangeable between years? Will each of the varying versions of OS and NS wings fit onto previous and/or later versions? Obviously they have different air intake bits over the years.

I'm looking at getting some new outer skins for the new upper/front panels (unknown year) I've got and I think my best option would be to get a 300 onwards NS panel and a 200tdi era OS panel. I can then fit the snorkel where needed when I get to that point with the cage.

The reason for asking is not knowing the age of the new wing tops/fronts I’ve got and I’m aiming for the plain early defender panels with no holes. No intake or repeater. That way I can fit the arches without worrying and can then add the repeater once I know where the arch ends up.

Don’t tell John 😜, but I have 19J/200Tdi side panels on my 109 for the snorkel and arch flares.  The 300Tdi and later panels are thinner (that’s why later models get dents so easily in the wing tops), but they’re all interchangeable.  And if you don’t mind getting the drill and some files out to do a little fettling, changing the indicator repeater aperture is easily done to fit whichever type you want - I fit the longer, flatter type from the late models to those 200 wings.

Yeah, I'm aiming to add the side repeaters from the Td5 era. But need to wait until the arches are sorted.
