i used a lorry cab wheel arch (huge black thing raps around double wheels)

cut it up and bolted on the inside of exsisting wheel arches.


my friend used them plastic strips you get in huge 'walk-in freezers' at superstores. far more flexible.

somone on here said about using Anti roof felt drooping into the gutter thingys from a roofing suppliers.

I got some myself and did mine too, it worked out at about 20 including some self tapping screws. Its easy to cut with tin snips or a stanley knife and they are quite flexible too.

You might want to make yours a bit wider than I did though....................





Very Happy

I used roof felt drip edge support tray with a push on bead/trim Smile

All four cost less than £20 to do Very Happy






You can buy a pack of 5 drip edge trays from Screwfix for £20 Smile

I managed to make two from each strip so thats enough for 10 arch extensions, depending how wide you want them Smile

This Vitara is currently for sale in the classified section Sad

/\

thats the guy!

1300 engines go pretty cheap due to people upgrading to 1600, if you see one local to you it may be worth considering a swap and some welding.


The HG went on mine so you're not alone.

Yes exactly those but I bought three of them from my local builders merchants for under a tenner Smile

I then just used a straight steel edge & a Stanley knife to cut the returned lip off and then to cut it into two (1x110mmW & 1x100mmW) one for the front & one for the rear. then once fitted I used a pair of good tin snips to shape the ends and finished them off with some push on trim edge that I bought from off of ebay.



Oh & loads of #10 black jap 12.5mm self tappers Rolling Eyes

I finished my screwfix arches today thanks very much to sae70 for the info!

I have plastic arches on my samurai and they where very easy to fit by trimming the lip off the bottom of the plastic arch and mounting them sandwiched between the plastic and metal arch using standard plastic trim clips and some goo


pics

This is brilliant, just what I was looking for.
Went down the route of trying to procure some nice thick conveyor rubber, but the supplying company was only interested in selling me a 1 meter wide by 10 Meters minimum roll for £90.... Not really what I was after ...

Anyway, I bit the bullet and bought a pack from Screwfix. The plan is to cut the 1.5 meter lengths into 3" or 3.5" strips and screw these to the inner wheel-arches of the Jimny. This should give us the extra width as in the pix above.
Not sure about the edge trim .. just another item to fall off or trap mud.

Might look into the possibility of just flashing the edge with a blowtorch to take any sharp corners off it

well post up pics when you have fitted them to your jimny because then the circle will be complete!

nothing short of rolling the edge is going to make it less sharp the plastic is only 1mm thick

If you do want conveyor rubber, I can get some (used, but in decent nick) from work.

We've got shedloads of conveyors, and they're always being replaced as they handle food...

PM me, and I'll do what I can.

One thing - it's all blue, not black, and pretty heavy for what it is, so postage may be a little pricey...

Hi Russ and Sway...

A little off topic but... We've been having a chat about a few of us southerners going to the Picadilly wood off road site at the beginning of next month if you are interested?
