Hi Pete

Had some mechanical work done last July at Classicbahstormers down in the Cotswolds. I also need some work done on a rear arch and asked them what they thought of these wheel arch panel and the said the profile wasn’t correct.
They say they fabricate their own or try and use good scrap ones if they can find them.
Best speak to Steve the owner and ask his advice.

Good look.

Wow, that looks like a great option! I read some reviews of people who used this vendor and they seemed pretty happy overall: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kadxxNVFHcQ

Shame shipping is so much, though it would probably still be worth it for me to get some panels if I was to begin my process.

There is a difference between the early cars and later ones. The difference is the edge of the arch to the wheel well on the bottom front edge. The later cars have a fit where they are a lot closer in between. I also found where the top of the arch is has an inner and outer panel I cut a section from a car in the junkyard and repaired both the inner and outer
