Series III VS Ute
Hi all,

My old man recently bought a Series 3 VS Ute and we where doing some repairs to the torno cover when we noticed that wheel arches in the back where different shape.

We thought originally it might be something to do with the fuel system but that doesn't seem right as the fuel cap is a fair way in from of the arches. (see picture)

Anway, we cant figure out why so here i am to find out :-D

the ute and wagon share a lot in the rear end panel wise, so the wheel arches are just stolen from the wagon, which has the filler behind/above the wheel arch.

ahh I see. Well that makes sense i suppose. Just use the wagon panels instead of making all new ones just for the ute and making them look the same. That would just make the car more expensive for no reason other than cosmetics.

Thanks for the response
