stone chips on wheel arches and wing mirrors

Recommended Posts

Does any one else have cracks on the front wheel arches from stone chips under the wheel arches. I think this is due to the lack of wheel arch liner but has anyone come up with a solution. Also I have the original wing mirrors which are epically rubbish, how do the new ones compare?

Will be at silverstone next Thursday with the BRDC, may be see some of you there.

Paul will never admt it but the new mirrors are loads better than the old stick ones :lol:

Had my wheelarches undersealed too so no chipping issues.

Can only suggest not driving through the gravel traps :lol:

Adds weight :lol: Just the normal car underseal is fine .

Actually I agree the new mirrors are better, if like Del you need to see who is coming up behind you. :lol:

Not a problem that I have had too much experience of, so the old mirrors are fine for me.

And they look so much more in keeping with the cars character!

Underseal it with spray on Body Schutz, available from most car paint suppliers and better accessory dealers. We don't do it in the first place because the car was designed to be minimalist and lightweight and the majority of 2-Eleven owners don't see to mind the odd chip or craze. The more stuff I put on it the heavier it is.... Don't forget, when originally concieved the car was going to be supplied unpainted as well! :lol:

Del,

I guess when Martin Donnelly tells you that you that you are as quick around Hethel as he is you can afford to be big headed :lol:
