Job 23 : Rear Arch Enlarging

 

 

Hours Spent : 6

 

To make way for the larger wheels the original MR2 wheel arches need to be cut back.
 

 

Nothing an angel grinder can't handle.  Unfortunately I didn't realise Toyota put the boot release cable down the inside of the wing so that got sliced in half as well!  Once the arch was cut out, the surrounding surface needed to be ground back to give the fibre glass a strong surface to stick to, then the whole area needs to be fibre glassed up to maintain the strength and prevent any rusting.
