Wheel Arches

Try Euro Car Parts, they do chrome arches for around £50 (not sure how much$ though), you'll have to get them colour matched (I sprayed up the ons I got to match the body) and if you have SPG kit you also need to cut them down a bit but you should end up with something similar.

I'll try and take a pic this weekend and post it so you can see what they look like.

I had to do some major bodging to get them on properly, i'm not sure what your supposed to do with the screws supplied???

I ended up using a combo of washers, nuts, bolts and epoxy on the to fit them, hopefully i should be able to unscrew the bolts and take them off if needed, just not tested the theory yet!

I bought some just like those on ebay for 40 bucks. They were in a polished stainless steel finish which looks really tacky but I'm going to have them painted flat black so they do not stand out.

that's a rediculous amount of money for 4 pieces of plastic. I'd go to a body shop first and see if they can fab something up for less than that amount of money.

Make 'em yourself!

Working with polyester isn't that hard you know!
Get a few pieces of hard foam, cut and grind them untill you have the design you want. Then cover them with aluminium-foil or something similar and cover with polyester. A bit of work, but very cheap and quite decent if you put some effort into it...
