Plastic fenders

Plastic fenders

The front fenders are made from plastic. This offers a weight advantage in comparison with fenders made from metal and allows minor parking "nudges" to be withstood without damage.

Since plastic moulded parts expand more under the influence of heat than steel, special sliding mounts are used to secure the fenders. If they are permanently fixed in place, the fenders lose their shape. It must therefore be ensured that a flexible connection is used. Paint jobs are performed as on conventional fenders.

Sheet metal parts for partial replacement

Various service sheet metal parts are available for sectional replacement.
