Front wheel arch departed at speed

#1 by Carroll493d , Sat Jun 27, 2020 9:24 am

So yesterday, at about 70 on the motorway my front passenger wheel flare/arch decided to part company. I've attached a gif for your amusement, although I doubt the white car found it amusing.
Anyway I've been trying to find a decent replacement. For the sake of colour matching I'd rather just get 4 new better looking ones. The beefy looking ones with fake bolt heads probably. But I can't seem to find any on the net for a series 4. Any help would be appreciated.
Also as you can see, there seems to be 2 mounting points that are metal and one has corroded away. Are these standard or a repair job that someone has done, and if standard how do I find them?
A lot of questions but someone will know.
Cheers team

If you want to trade up - you're looking at about £350-400 for the Kut Snake options(medium and w i d e). There are usually a few floating around on Ebay second hand, and there's a custom maker in Cyprus that also does them - @animal (click on his name) has the cyprean set in his profile pic.
As to the OE part that caused a brown alert during your journey, that appears to be a standard factory flare.
For a future reference - its only an L200 in europe/russia - it's also called the strada and triton(australia)


Anything is possible, all you need is imagination or own a bank!
