If you speak to Jim at Alloy Racing Fabrications then he should be able to supply you with some Alloy rally arches for a Mk1 Fiesta. I had a set from a Group.2 Fiesta and had them copied by Jim, he should still have a pattern for them.

what were they like to fit

time consuming,u need to trim the body high to meet the arch,u need to bridge the gap from inner to outer rear arch.a lot of filler work to get the lines.the other option is to not blend them in and fit an edge protector like mini arches.

Sorry my english is not so good. I´ am from germany. Here they have a picture from ebay from Fiesta Rally wide wheel arches. It´s crap did I hear?

Historic Motorsport (Southwest) are in the process of developing some new fibreglass kits based on a Group 2 Rally Car they are building. If you check their Retards Club page I think they are aiming to sell kits at around £150 without a front spoiler.
