  • What about arches like these? They come in different widths and are made for bigger wheels. Depending on the overall look of your mini and how you position them I think it could look pretty cool

      • I have been watching these for a while.

        https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UNIVERSAL...d/352716501749

        They fit the requirements quite well.

        Ian, the ones you show are narrow at the ends. Ideally I want something that has over 50mm as the tyre will still stick out.

        Also interested where they came from though. 🤔
        If tha does owt fo nowt, olas do it fo this 'en.

        • It was just a random set off eBay, they’re all the same. The ones in your link are narrow at the bottom as well, that’s what they are all like, still legal as long as the top of the tyre tread is covered

          • Keep at it Andrew! I think a mini arch stretched to the necessary width might look pretty odd and although legal covering the tread viewed from above, you’ll have muck and water sprayed up the car - so here’s something completely different. I think the radius should be nearer to what you need also

                  You got it!

                  Back at work now too. End of Furlough. The slow progress will get slower again.

                  • Posted last over a month ago. The car is now at my mates who is on Furlough. I've asked him to paint the inside of it. It's stripped out completely now. Removed the rear side windows, door cards etc. It's just getting painted in red Hammerite. You won't see most of it once finished. Hoping to get this back this week. Then can actually start building!
