+2 wheel arch / fender flairs

Hi all,

I know there are a number of different wheel arch extension / flairs for the for elan.

But - I was wondering if anyone had done this with the plus 2.

Looking to see if anyone has done this before and what the results looked like before I take the plunge.

The ones I have seen mostly concentrate on the rear arch extensions although I have seen some with front arches blended into a front spoiler, mostly for motor sport, very few on the road.

The looks are questionable, but fashions come and go, at the moment people want original, so maybe its the time to be different?


Kindest regards
