Rear wing repair

Recommended Posts

Just got the Z back from SE yesterday and it's running great. New ICE fitted and working well - life couldn't be much better!




Backing out of the garage today and I've caught a dustbin (left out by my neighbour!) between the rear wing and the wall of the house! No major damage to the paint, but I now have a visible indent in the rear wing above the rear wheel arch! :mad: :mad: :mad:


Anyone know how I can get "inside" the rear wing to pop it out again. I assume that I need to go through the boot to get to it...


Any help appreciated!

Depending on how high the dent is, you sould be able to get at it from inside the wheel arch. Take the wheel off and have a look.


If you cant access it there its interior out of the boot job and getting access through a small gap.

That is defo a body shop job, and by the way unless the picture isa bit off focus looks like your rear tyre is in need of replacing, sorry

Yuh thats more of a crease than a dent,


This is my car before and after dent







That cost about £150 to have repaired at a bodyshop that included respray from the rear wing to halfway up the door to blend the colour in. I also had a crease similar to yours which cost about £70 to repair.

and just to cheer you up proper style, check that the boot seam hasn't split as well (just at the bottom inside corner edge of the boot) , if this was much more than a gentle touch, then you might have loaded that from the side.
