Where did you find these arches from?

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.

Thanks, fossjw! That's one step closer.

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.
