Agreed - if you can avoid filling them and replace them with new metal, certainly the best way to go... otherwise the problem just comes back time again, no point in spending much on paint if thatís gonna happen (Iíve learned over the years!).

My 80 had replacement arches a few years ago, I got the panels from a place called Carz2, they took a few weeks to arrive but the guys were very helpful.

I donít believe there are any differences between 80/90 body shells, so 80 panels will do you, have a look at the below link;

Hope thatís of some help.

I believe those are the ones that I'm currently fitting to my type-85 coupe at the moment, when I can persuade myself to grind the welds down. The only issues I've had are right at the bottom - the shape behind the wheelarch has a bend rather than a curve, which is different to mine, and the shape in front of the wheelarch was quite badly finished.

As I'm replacing the sills, the latter was no problem as I just cut it off and will make that bit as the back of the sill section. The other part was quite easily re-shaped to match the car, and is behind a big plastic bumper anyway.

They do take a couple of weeks to arrive, they don't stock them so it's just a case of placing a back-order and waiting until they have another bulk order in. I don't think you'll find them in stock, so no use waiting.
