Had to do that on my 7HA already - it's off an Aston Martin :lol:
That certainly beats having a 4HA from a Thwaite dumper truck! :lol:
One would have been a lot cheaper than the other, despite having 95% of the same bits :w

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

A bit like these? Replaced the Mexico arches with reconstituted Coupe arches cut, stretched and widened to cater for the 4HA.

In response to the earlier questions, we are just going to move the arches back roughly 7 inches. I kept the doors and all four wheel arches from the donor SE5 so I will see what I can do with those when it comes to the glass work.
