Hi,

 

I'm looking at getting some new wheel arches for my mini as the current ones I have are cracked.  I've been looking at Arc Angels W+P style arches and I was wondering if anyone here has fitted them.  I notice they are advertised as being the same width as their group 2 arches (front 1 3/4'' and rear 1 1/4'') which is narrower than the W+P arches that I can find for sale anywhere else (minispares ect).  It would be great if somebody that has a pair would be able to confirm their width please.

Thanks

WP arches are made by so many different companies now it's hard to tell which is good and which bad, although ARC Angels have a good reputation. I bought 3 sets of WP arches. The first were the Minispares fibreglass ones which I took back as they didn't fit anywhere, and exchanged them for the WP plastic ones which I was assured would fit. They didn't. Third set was a second hand pair of Genuine Wood & Picket arches N.O.S. Which still didn't fit but after cutting each arch into six pieces, using the car as a mould and fibreglassing over the top, I finally got arches that fit like a glove. But lots of filler, rubbing down etc.
