Did you do that mate
No not my work but I knew the builder and subsequent owners.
The arches were made in sections.. tops and then the faces in 16 gauge steel..

Thats exactly my thinking need something wide to cover the intended wider track
how much wider as those are only about standard not much more.

there are options out there of the shelf. up to about 63-64" on standard hubs.

I have seen similar things done on a Cortina estate. They basically sectioned and split the wings, doors and quarter panels.
They then pulled the wings, doors etc to get the basic shape and added sections of steel to tie it all up. Sounds straight forward but its not and its time consuming.
