Hi

I have just bought a set of 12 x 6 revolution wheels and really like the wood and Pickett arches. I was wondering do these arches cover the wheels enough? Also what did you have to do to fit them?

Any advice appreciated

 

Thanks Jack

You'll need to cut and reshape the front wings. They need a lip to attach to, so that has to be bent back in after you've cut them (you should do this anyway for strength). They look pretty good though. Here's mine with the same wheels as you have:

They don't cover them entirely, but it's pretty close.

That's a very nice looking car! Do the wheels stick out a legal amount or more?

Thanks ☺️, they don't stick out too far. From most angles you'd hardly notice it.
