    the strut brace came with it, it had a blue one before that never made it to the road and that had 1 as well, I think they're standard.

    no luck on the arches, I keep meaning to start work on it and not getting time (other jobs crop up)

    the cam belt was relatively easy though, all the pulleys are marked.

    easier to find than i thought, cost £135 including the postage for the 4 panels.

    That seems pretty cheap ...

    Is that the inner rear arch in the first pic? But the outer (visible) sill at the bottom ? Or is it for a 5 door ?

    its both rear arches and both sills.

    The sills will need a bit of fettling as you are right they are for the 5 door but they are very close! easily close enough that the bit of messing about is worth it.

    got them off a website, firm in Manchester, they said they had to order the arches from Denmark or something. i'm well pleased though, didn't know you could buy these bits.

    I'm just struggling to work out how/where the arches would go ?

    They look like they're shaped to accommodate a rear door (which the pickup obviously doesn't have) so will you have to cut straight through the rear panel and weld it up very neatly ?

    And I assumed they were inner arches because the step inwards from the small sill section to where the arch begins looks different....


    Very curious to see more on this !! Keep us up to date

    It's easier to fit front arches to the opposite rear.
    If you pm an email address to me I,ll send you some
    pics of some I did recently. I,d post em up but too complex for an old timer.
    Cheers rolo
