i was wondering if anyone knew where i could pick up a grey standard wheel arch for a mk5/6 RSP Cooper?

and how much it will cost?

because, when i work up this morning my front wheel arch had fallen off or been nicked.

thanks

You probarbly all know this already, but i tried 'Back to black' on my plastic arches, they almost look like new again. I think its basically a silicone type thing, but looks pretty good. You can buy it from halfords, but I dont know how much it costs as I scrounged it from my friend, hehe.

you could buy some chrome arches u dont need to paint them and they look great.
i have them and the only problem i have with with them is keeping them shiny because once it rains or frosts u get streaks on them

There's also a product called Tire Black that works great at turning faded rubber and plastic back to it's original color. Don't know if you have that in the UK though.
