I bought a set of these 'copies' via Ebay from Rabbitz2K around May for my partly restored LWB Super Exceed and was very disapointed. Tried a rear first against the bodywork and it was at least 2" short at the bottom from sill to back of arch. I did wonder if the LWB was different so tried against my SWB (now passed on to son Matt) and it appeared to have the same problem though the SWB has the rubber extensions  from Devon 4x4? fitted so it was a bit of a guess. Fronts are just as bad. I do intend to cut and fill these to fit and at the same time get rid of the ugly bottom bits as I don't like how these stick out.

Does anyone know if the originals were more flexible and shape to arch when fitted, where the copies might be acurate to the unmounted originals but inflexable.

I bought mine ages ago , sold as factory fit , they went on okay ...i recently saw a set that looked like mine at first glance but on closer inspection were different to mine ...maybe there is two types out there ?  

Btw Yoza i like those extra flares you put on , where did you get them from ?

Simply cut/shape and self tapper screw into underside of arch.

Thanks to Boxerbloke for posting photos which I've compared to my set. They are definitely different. The most obvious difference is that yours have a pronounced dip at the rear of the front arch to clear the door when opened. Your fronts might be a touch wider making this feature more necessary. There also appears to be a more pronouned vertical/square edge to each arch whereas mine are less defined and flow more smoothly in to the general flare. On yours the rear nearside arch above the hinge clearance section also has a more defined change into the general flare of the rest of the arch. Mine appear to be from the same pattern as Yodas'.
Boxerbloke - Can you recall who supplied you as it may help others on future purchases?
