    Would these be a suitable replacement for slightly rusting rear arches?

    Now that's a thought. Sort my arches with a set of these and the good ol' grinder, then get my 16's back on. Do you have a ballpark figure for price yet Paul? Very nice :)
    It's a 2.0 inline four that thinks it's a viper v10. What's not to love?

    well i can easily knock out abflug replicas ,it will take a few months to sort,my priority is getting the mk1 wide arch kit out there but def doable,i will get on it.

    These arches will mean all rusty arches can be cut out and these bonded on instead and will come with a new arch liner to bridge the gap,fitment will be very close so can either be left as a contact fitment (with perhaps a rubber seal between arch and body) or easily flush blended.

    Price wise im hoping to bring the full set of four arches in at £200-£250 including everything needed to attach them and the arch liners,but until the first batch are produced i wont know exact costs,it could end up being cheaper than that.

    The buddy club rep front will cost somewhere between £100 and £150

    If i do an abflug rep arch kit that too will be circa £200-£250 for a full set

    Hopefully the prices arent outside peoples reach,the production costs of these are quite high.

    Pricing sounds spot on Matey. Having had Fibreglass stuff made up before, I know its not a cheap thing to do; Had a front spoiler made up for one of my other cars and needed to shift around 30 of the damn things before even breaking even! (ps if anyone wants a spoiler for a suzuki cappuccino, let me know cos I've still got 8 of the damn things left!)

    I dont want to release pics just yet of the actual arches but they will look very similar to adams arches that i built a few years ago...





    I will be releasing actual pics of the arches very soon,along with the new late spec front lip design very similar to this....



    If you are provisionally interested let me know so i can get an idea on numbers for the first production run.
    how wide are the ones on the blue one so i can determine the widths im after? also what are the buddy club ones and the ab flug ones?

    adams are about 3" wide front and back,i will be able to produce up to 4" wide.... you really need to go about it the other way though,space your wheels out or get deep dish rims first,then measure what sort of arch you need.... trying to match wheels to arches would be much harder

    the buddy club spoiler is the red front lip in that pic above...and abflug arches are for mk2s
