Moparnut:

See the thread "How do you post a picture?" I just dragged to the top (TTT).
Quick tips:
1. reduce picture file size.
2. use a computer not a smart phone

A 76 Mini came originally with 10" wheels, which according to those who know are the best size for handling and ride comfort.ches

It sounds like the previous owner of your Mini bought huge 13" wheels/tires. To fit 13's on the front, the steel fender arches had to be cut larger or they would rub. They may still rub somewhere on full lock. Then the previous owner bought big wheel arches to fit over the big wheels. Until we see/know what style of giant arches they are we can't say for sure, but it sounds like the rear wheel openings need to be enlarged to fit them. Or maybe they aren't for a Mini???

just bought a 76 Leyland Mini.  175X50X13 in tires.  the front has this x-large wheel arch "attached".... altho i "think" it has been glued... for the rear not installed yet as i cannot figure out how, as there is NO "lip" on the inside edge.... will fit (somewhat) over the "lip" on the mini's wheel arch-- but is some 8 or more inches toooo long (curved).  some (or a lot) of the rear x-large wheel arch would have to be cut/trimmed/shortened.  appreciate any help/advice/info/yi yi yi yi !!!  also i cannot put photo here of the wheel arch and my mini.  need help (PHYSICAL----NOT MENTAL) thanks
