Needing to weld in new battery tray, lower rear corner and maybe sills. Have used Schofield and JK panels in the past. Who is making/supplying the best quality/fit panels at the mo for late bays ?

JK have always been easy to deal with, good website and delivery, however there are soooooo many people selling VW parts now, it might be good to do price checks before buying

i dont let price lead me on panels quality is most important. im with doods on this 1 custom an comercial are tip-top they fit better have next to no tooling marks and the return flanges have square edges rather than round .
rust is not the enemy in my line of work..........have you ever tried to weld a turd i do most days..........
