Heres one link. I'm looking for another where a member has "butchered" two new mini valences and made one up.Not strictly the correct size but what the hell?!

I've gotten a new set of valance panels for an estate to use on my trailer. I haven't started welding them on yet, but they look to be a decent fit although not quite as deep as the original valance.

That would be me! You have to look hard to tell, and it's definitely better than using van ones as on the car I inspected for Jim. For a total cost of £19 and a bit of labour, it's well worth it IMO! (When I did mine I couldn't find a new Elf one anyway, but for the money I think I'd still do the same again anyway)



The rear of the Elf is a bit wider than the Mini, so you take just over half of each side, join them in the middle, cut away the end flanges, but kind of diagonally so that the join is on the corner, do a similar job to the cut-off shorter sections to make a side section, cut to length and fold over the edge to join the closers to. That's it in a nutshell; obviously there's a bit of fiddling and panel beating to make it fit, but it's worth the effort. There's no filler on mine BTW.
