So I'm slowly making progress. Few little jobs at a time. Arches have finally arrived and iv fitted the rear, need an extra pair of hands for the fronts. Iv also painted inside the rear tub but I'm not sure if I like it or not.
Arches don't quite cover the tyres completely but I'm not too fussed at the moment, it's primarily for off-road use.

Thanks Scottie, I'm not sure what they're called. They are from Poland. Were £100 posted give or take. https://bg4x4.eu/en/fender-flares/3128- ... -k10w.html
They do different sizes, 10cm is the max I could find.
