I need a rear right side.  Mine fell off the other day and got run over...a few times.  And I can't find them anywhere.

I've been searching everywhere trying to find more info (and possibly a retailer) for these arches, front spoiler and sills seen on several Japanese Minis. Turtle Trading only has the front spoiler available and I have seen something very similar elsewhere but these arches and especially the sills continue to elude me.

 

Does anybody have info on them? Thanks in advance for any clues.

I also like the look of these and did some digging. 

It appears that it is a kit being developed by a company called WFO Fukuoka Japan.

The have blog, and here is a post about it.

Also an online store where I can only find the duck tail.

Group 6 arches, front fitted perfect, had to cut the rears at the back where it meets the rear valance, just personal preference as i didnt like the large gaps at the front of the rear arches

WFO has released a new bodykit for the mini, it's not quite the same as the one posted above.

Additionally I have found some information that the kit on the red and grey minis above was called a Bean's Bodykit, apparently it is no longer sold.

Thinking of swapping my sportspack arches for Group 2 arches on my MPI. I notice though that the sportspack arches ride quite high with the little cut out for the indicators. Does that mean there will be holes to fill once I take the sportspack aches off? Or will the group 2 arches cover them?

 

Cheers folks!

Hello guys, I am looking into buying WP arches in 2019, I've read they are a pain in the ass to install, but the minispares have some "superfit" that they claim are easy to install. I want to know If anyone has any experience with that specific model from minispares, and also, if theres pictures from the back and front of the car with them. I found a picture in here but it doesnt show the rear end properly.

 

I am hesitating between minispares and ABS motorsport.

 

thanks for your help!

Stumbled on this gold mine of a discussion and just spent the vast majority of my lunch break looking through some of the impressive stuff people have. I've been thinking of playing about with my car and was thinking of some 6x12 revolutions, and a bit wider wheel base than I have. Just wondered if anyone had any examples of what arches they've used with 12's as I noticed theres not all that many on here
