Not keen on FG arches, fronts better off with complete wing & rears need be steel & inner arch fed to it correct really, Just an over panel ends up a rust trap & never ages well with a sh1t load of filler blending rear quarter.

Now the Polish job on those bolt ons is surprisingly good in terms of appearance & fit & what you see is what it is with no filler.
Looks like the car got no suspension travel though :-)

No filler just rivet them straight on. Twisted Evil

Arches are a rust trap straight out of the factory.

I don't mind those arches but how well they fit is another thing.

Yeh still not great riveting them on.

Arches do tend be the weak spot but still looking at 20 years+ before a problem, don't see any bodywork or paint jobs that last anything like original.
Not keen on any body alterations really as just a PITA as don't last & FG panels get hairline cracks too easily & tend warp over time.

If wanted a little wider track I would probably do similar to the polish as cheap & with some effort it could be done well & easily maintainable.

I think the narrow style intergrale arches would look pretty damn mean on the R but for proper clearance/ suspension travel you need chop arches & to do it right rather than just for show is expensive.

Hi guys,

I'm the new owner of the car that you are talking about Smile

And it just happens that I bought new arch extensions as I broke one on the racetrack.

To achieve the look you see, you have to cut the fender a bit and use some of those (sorry, don't know the english word):

to screw the arch to fender.

They are not 100% plug'n'play, you have to make some trimming for the side trim and correct the length. They are made from fiberglass + some carbon fiber reinforcement.

If anyone is interested I can get as much as you want, as I'm in touch with the guy who made them.

Here are some pics of them on the car (sorry for the quality):

Also curious, dont know if I could chop up a decent shell fir them though.

Don't know if cutting is necessary... my car uses 245 wide tires + some spacers so there was no other way.

Set is about 300 GBP

Without nipping the lip off surely your tyre will foul the arch unless your suspension has zero travel.

^ Yeh that the thing with flared arches if the inner not cut back they 99% useless as your suspension can not use the room to travel . front wings not a bother to do & inner liner is plastic plus all reversible as can unbolt.
Proper job on rear requires cutting arch lip & bit of a one way route, not so bad if arch rusty & needs chopping to start with.
If I was going with flared arches think I would go green hornet wings on front & get a panel former shape sheet metal to match front style for weld in on rear.

Is that 300 ready to bolt on? Or still need to do stuff to the bolt on arches to make them fit well?
