Re: Arches

You can't buy a kit or replacment arches. Either cut it out and weld plates or cut it out and fibregass.
Either way make sure you seal and waxoyl everywhere or it'll come back

Re: Arches

I've just found an old post on scoobynet where a guy was saying the subaru drivers club sells replacement rear arches for welding. Tho the post was 2003 and as i'm not a member i can't see if they still do them. Tho maybe someone here is and can advise. Or join up yourself.

Re: Arches

I will have a good search and see if i can find some. I would have thought by now that someone would be pressing them for the impreza. Other than that I was thinking of cutting some out of a scrapper. Place near me has quite a few in. Thinking of cleaning them up and getting them fitted on mine. Waiting until the weather breaks first. Not bothering with the weather we have at the moment.
