Hello there! I wanted to know:

I currently have group 2 arches in fiberglass. I dont like much that they have a lip, I want to go back to the standard mini special and paint them.
I wanted to know If need to re-drill the body or if on the other hand, they use the same holes.

Any experiences?

There have been several different manufacturers of the fibreglass Group 2 arches over the years, so I doubt you will find many, if any, that line up with the same holes as the standard plastic arches.

Also if your car does not have standard ride height it is unlikely the arches would have been fitted in standard position anyway.
