The difference in the front wings is the lower front corner where it meets the front valance... you could cut this section off your wings if its any good and weld it onto a S2 or S3 front wing... not ideal but it’s a solution if you can’t drop on any S1 wings

I understand the differences between the First Gen & the Second are the front wings where they meet the metal bumper & the rear number plate panel which is indented, otherwise it is the same. I can repair everything metal wise just except the door. Just easier & quicker to replace with some good parts. I did look on ebay for the guy selling repair panels, he seems to of disappeared. Thanks again for the advice.

Yeah, Steve Brooks, this is him...

I think he only does the RX7 stuff to order now due to the low demand, I bought some of these MR2 panels off him and they were perfect.
