Ben, I am interested in some flared arches for my CF2, I understand that CF2s are rare in you part of the word but also am led to believe that the only difference between the CF and CF2 (regarding bodywork) is the grill, bonnet and wings.

What can you recommend for me? I was thinking rears only but the front looks a bit high and the tyres do stick out and I wouldn't mind some front arches to bring the gap down a bit.

Apologies for the poor pictures (low light)

Unfortunately the wheel arches are also a larger diameter. Flares built for the earlier model will not fit. Found that one out years ago.

Rough, you are right, before I put the Mk 2 front on my van it had bolt on flares ofcourse it was a Mk 1 then, but the flares did not fit the new Mk 2 front guard, had to cut them and make them longer. Bas

Suterman, go to the UK van site at http://www.ukcustoms.cjb.net/ click on custom vans, there is a site that only deals in vans but can't find the link at the moment, they have a lot of MK2 Beddies with kits on and they are the same, so someone is making them over there. The pictures below are all UK Vans.  Bas

Hey Suterman, Ben and others I will very soon have moulds for CF2 flairs, as Im making mine shortly.

I will keep you all posted, the ausis dont bother making them because they only have TWO CF2's in Ausi, poor neglegted cousins of ours   :-\ :-\ ;) :D
