It depends, if you`ve worked in a bodyshop for 30 years it`s no problem: if you`ve never used an angle grinder it`s a massive problem.
This covers it, the mk1 will be basically the same.

Straightforward job for a body shop really, Especially if they've worked on older cars. Certainly, many people change the wings themselves.

The toughest part is trying to get pattern part wings to fit. Have you found a source ?
