VP wagon questions

Ok, I'm picking up a VP wagon really cheap from a friend. At this stage I think the only thing wrong with it is a minor dent in the tailgate and rear bumper (backed into pole). Doesn't affect the tailgate operation at all, just asthetic.

Now I believe that VN, VP, VR and VS tailgates are the same and should just bolt on, but what about the bumper? Anyone answer this?

I'm still tossing up whether it's worth while to replace or repair of just leave it as is. Anyone got an idea what wreckers are asking for these items in SE QLD?

Whoa there Hem_Den....Ute and wagon rear bars in the VN - VS series are way different.

The wagons had a full rear bar which follows the lines of the rear of the car.

The utes have bumperettes which stick out past the rear of the car and do not continue across the vehicle.

Sorry was mentally tiered from the 10h drive i just did.
What i should have said was, Yes the rear bar plastic's are different the ute still has a full bar but, but they are actually the same. you can put a full wagon bar on a ute and visa-versa.
How i know? as the white vn wagon thats in my shed i brought it with the same damage to the hatch and rear bar. Replaced hatch from a VS, But my rear bar was just a reo problem. And the reo i pulled from the wreckers came off a VR ute ar it was the only straight one there.

Thanks all,

Will be picking the car up in a week or two and will have a good look over it before I decide what I'll be doing or not doing for it.
