Rear wheel arches

Post by andyp73 »

Hello,

Amongst the myriad of rust repairs that my MR2 is going to need there is a big piece needs cutting out of the passenger side rear wheel arch.

Is it possible to get MR2 Mk2 repair panels or is there another vehicle that has a close enough profile to be able to use the repair panels from that?

-Andy.

I don't remember seeing anything about anyone doing arch repair panels for the MK2, but I'm not certain, there's a couple of eBay sellers doing sill repair panels, might be worth contacting them.

Have look at this thread you will more than likely find it useful for the work ahead ;) LINKY

Hi I had to do this on my rev 1 v6 turbo along with both outer sills and the passenger inner sill. You can get the outer sills from MR2 ben for £65 each. But the rear arch panels will have to be fabricated. I just cut out all the rot and kept what was left in one piece then made them in plates took a while but was worth it. Even if ot can’t be seen 😂
