Fix it or cut it and replace 50cm from bottom?

Looks like it has had two previous repairs to the bottom corners. would say it would be better to put a complete lower section in. and a new lower valence at the same time.

Hmmm - I'd be tempted to put on a full nose panel.... it looks pretty beat up all over!
yes its expensive - but will probably save a heap of time and have a much better result.

To clarify my original front section had the near side quadrant grafted in. The whole NS had been replaced with VW repair panels diverted on after it had been rolled!
So complete front was way to go fitted really well!
