VW Rabbit flares for a MGB GT

I know this has been asked a number of times but which VW Rabbit flares are used at each end of a B GT?
I have read that you use the rear Rabbit flares on the front of a B and vice versa. In Keith Tanners excellent article he used the rear ones at both ends of the B. Which is the best (and or easiest) or is there no difference?

Rear on both ends for Rabbit. The Dodge Omni used front and rear. Check out the Mk 1 rear fender rust repair panels in this link:

I have four front fenders that have the flares trimmed off from a Nissan Stanza. The link above has them on Mike Cooks MGB. I will not be using them and went a different route. If you are interested?

I know that you are in the UK, but there is a set of 4 Rabbit flares just posted for sale (with photos) over on the classified thread.

Thank you for the information, I can get the repair panels for about $22.50 including postage to me here in the UK I am able to obtain two new front wings which have been damaged in transit for $20 each plus postage.
