Thanks Paul! Yup the metal arch-extender is still attached. Google-ing around looks like I can purchase just one required (https://classicmotor...cooper-s-mk-ii/). Let's hope the paint job doesn't break the bank.

I am thinking of getting sportspack arches and fitting 7X13 minilight wheels, do I need to do anything to the car in order to put the arches and wheels on? 

 

cheers.

cut the front wings to clear the wheels when turning, and possibly fit steering lock limiters to avoid hitting the inner wings

Hi, I've got a damaged rear arch on my 72 mini and I'd prefer to replace just the damaged arch (I appreciated I'd still more than likely have to buy a pack of 4) than change and paint 4 new ones.

I think mine are Group 2 (narrow) - the rears are 1 & 3/4 inches wide. The problem is that they are all slightly different and nearly all of them have a bit of an upstand at the back where the arch meets the bodywork of the car.

Mine definitely doesn't have an upstand. I'll try and attach a few photos.

 

Below are a couple of links to possible the right arches - what do you think?

Thanks

I would say they came from ABS, either the group 2 narrow or maybe narrow Abingdon. send them a pic of the wheel arch see what they think?

Hi just wonder if anyone has the Minispares MS128 http://www.minispare...ssic/MS128.aspx group 5 arch, I want to get a set but picture in Minispares web is not very clear. I would appreciate it if you can give advice to see if it's good quality and how easy to fit, pictures will be great too, thanks very much.

Hi all! 

 

I´m searching for the perfect arches for a 10" wheel and found this image. I really love them but have no idea which arches are. They look alike but are definetly not a Group 5, because of the back part detail and because they seem to be longer in the front part (arche reaches below the bumper)... 

 

Could someone help me? As a clue, it seems it is a '97 japanese mini...

 

Thanks everyone!
