Karl : what do you mean by "rear end" ? Presuming this to be the boot floor and lower rear valances etc, then I would have no hesitation in recommending Hutson's for the parts . Their parts are made in zintek ( effectively, galvanised ) and therefore are superior in terms of durability to any others. They do , in any case, make many parts for other suppliers

I used the Robey Panels version but it didn't fit too well as supplied and needed some minor adjustment. I would go with Hutsons if I was to do it again.
