Re: Wheel arch linear repair

plastic weld would be the only way to repair, so that it lasts, most panel beater shops or specialists do plastic repairs, prob won't be cheap, but if you cant get originals, there are not many ways around it.

Re: Wheel arch linear repair

Try plastic weld/similar first but I suspect that just jointing the crack is not going to hold especially when refitting as these liners can be a pig to fit.

You might have to resort to a rear structural repair and then front fill having made a small 'V' grove along the crack line.
