Hi chaps back on this again, ordered from P&L minis as suggested, I got a refund today for one arch! They say that you can’t get them anymore well at least the passenger side one so they sent me one arch 🤷‍♂️ Ow and charged me full postage including vat of around £15 very disappointed with that what a joke!!!! Anyway my issue is I need 1x passenger side front arch genuine if anyone knows where I can get one please let me know .
Cheers all

You're not the only one (i did wonder about sending a PM in case you hadn't ordered yours when P&L were still showing stock).

Anywhere around £100 for a reasonably good use set or £300+ for a new set.

I have had a lot of trouble getting hold of a set.

 

Everyone is out of n/s/f arches for some reason.

I also ordered from P&L but my order was cancelled by them due to stock problems.

 

I think this is the end of new genuine arch availability sadly.

 

I haven't tried non gen rubber arches before but have heard that they are very difficult to fit well. Some guides said they were impossible to fit... As I say I haven't tried.

 

I don't personally like fiberglass arches generally. They tend to look chunky and clumsy to me.

 

Good luck

Cheers

Ben

The rubber Sportspack arches aren’t great. They’re pretty soft and in the case of a car I used to work on you could see them drooping slightly between the mounting bolts.

I haven’t had a set of Sportspack arches from ABS Motorsports but they do have a reputation for making good quality parts. I would start there and hope you don’t have to do much adjusting.

I'll buy a £100 set off of you if I may :-)
