130 rear arches

Just a quick question, I made a couple of threads about this.

Do I need a set of front arches from a 110 or was it the rear arches I would need?

And what size rivets should I use?

Many thanks
Ronald

I think opinions on this vary, but IIRC I have 110 fronts on mine, reversed, and attached using 14 mm rivets. I used a cutting disk on an angle grinder to cut them back a bit (using tape as a guide), then sanded for a smooth finish.

I've done a few, use standard rears. They are not quite the correct shape however when you fit them if you warm them up with something like a space heater this will help. Use molegrips to hold the arch in place whilst fitting. I use 16mm rivets.
Take a look in my gallery's.
