Horsman Conversions is the tuning and accessories side of Little Garage Classics.

I will be reproducing some period accessories, and offering some of my own period styled bolt on tuning and cosmetic parts.

First up, I will be offering Cosmic style wheel arch extensions. I took some pictures of the first batch which I made today:

I was fairly pleased with the first batch. If there is enough interest I will make these to order.

They will be priced at £120 for a set of 4.

If you want them polished bare alloy, the price will be higher, as this would be a very time consuming task.

Feedback appreciated.

I didnt think the price was too bad, seeing as though they are hand crafted, and you can spend £90 on a set of fibreglass miglias, or £50 on a set of group 2's that are mass manufactured....

one thing worth mentioning would be the sharp edges
the police take a dim view of metal arches from experience
unless maybe you rolled the edge?

would hurt like hell brushing past one of those! let alone if a kid fell into it

other than that fab idea!

Yes Jonny, made to order.

They aren't rolled no. Made just the same as the original cosmics.

I filed the edge so that it wasn't sharp.

I have some more products in the pipeline, with a rocker cover coming soon!

I might be after a set of these but could do with getting some cheap fibreglass copies or setting first to see how they look on
