Inner arch protection ideas please

Postby pigeondave » Tue Jun 07, 2022 2:00 pm

Hi,

I've been thinking of bonding in some plastic (abs or polypropylene?) Wheel arch liners for the front of the Fury.

I see that a number of people have some sort of protection to the underside of the bonnet and was wondering what you used. Is there a standard trailer or car inner arch liner which is ideal? Something that I can cut down and bonded in?

Ideally I'd want to close it off so it doesn't get too wet under the engine bay.

Also what would be the recommendation on bonding goo?

If you fit to the chassis they're better removable to make engine and suspension access easier. Fitted to the bonnet they can be bonded on but will still potentially get in the way.
Probably best in both cases if they come down below the top edge of the sidepod so water drops down instead of having to be sealed to stop it running along the pod top.
