Anyone able to measure their original genuine Mk1 side skirts and tell me the correct angle they should be bent at mine are bent out of shape, i have a pattern to make more but need the correct angle to bend them at.



cheers

Richie

Default Carrier MK1 side

The angle for the fender by the front wheel only is 140 degrees .Mine is rolled around the edges about 8 mm wide,with the roll to the out side. How did you get this done on yours ?Will the English wheel do it .George
