Had a look at the Mk 2 Escort arches or the Talbot(?) arches

I think Chevette group 4 gives you the same rears, but the fronts for Chevette are missing a section as designed to mate with an airdam.

I believe the Escort ones are also available in alloy which you may prefer...

rear ones don't look like HS arches to me, too small and wrong shape. i'd suggest sunbeam or possible escort fronts

I found some pic's of my trip to the Eifel rally. (could be ex works machine). I have seen these arches on Kadetts on youtube before, I would say they are Opel rally arches not Escort type.

I have had a look in my Rally Bible and it shows the same arches on the works cars, you maybe able to get them through a German Kadett fourum. Also there is a green and white car that comes over for one of the Manx rallys that has the same arches. ( I think the car is from Ireland)
Hope this helps..

You can get Group 2 and Group 4 arches from GT2i in France

I have their historic catalogue and they are listed in there

I think its www.gt2i.com

Actually here is the page you want:

Ebay.de is also your freind for Kadett "rennsport" parts
