Anyone cut out their arches

I fitted the fiberglass Rangie Spares ones that Devon 4x4 sell if that's what you've got.

Measure twice, cut once and be brave!! :eek:
Make sure the new flare maches the shape of the body before you cut anything.

If it's a 3-door then you need to remove the front plastic inner arches, the rears are fine but watch the fuel filler pipe if you're using a jigsaw!! ;)

5-Doors are more tricky and I've not done one so I'll leave that to someone who has.
 
A few photos for you:

Rear arch cut.

Front arch cut.

Finished item on 33x12.5R15s.

And the articulation with those tyres

anyone fitted them flexi arches to a five door model from what ive read, the fronts are easy to fit but the rears are hard to get right, im going try fit some on my 5 door, want to do them myself but confidence not great. i mean it,d save a ruck of money though the arches are £180 on there own.:eek: so they,d be a £350 job all in with garage labour aswell.......:(
 
With the 5 door version you do have to be carefull as you're cutting into the frame of the door, not just the skin. Patching the hole that's left is the skilled part otherwise it can look a right mess. ;)
 
Very impressed with the galleries in 4x4shop.net!!

Those 110's look great and amazingly they can make a J**P look ok too:D
