Hi,

After a little advice he has got these to fit quite nicely. Like most fibreglass arches they do take a little bit of work to fit and are not normally a straight bolt on fit, unless the moulds are brand new as these are not but they do fit.

With these arches and spoilers it is always best to fit them together on the floor and then offer them upto the car securing the front end of the arch first and applying a little pressure as you move around the arch securing the rest of it.

I will get round to putting a fitment guide together for future reference to help anyone else.

Regards
