Wheel arch trims

Post by DaveK » Sun Feb 04, 2024 3:45 pm

Hi
I'm new to Bongo Fury, had our 2002 camper for just under 4 years now.
Just wanted to ask if anyone in the group knows where I can purchase chrome wheel arch trims for our Bongo.

Regards

Welcome aboard!

Wheel arch trims are usually not very popular as they trap moisture behind them and generate rust from the front surface, the wheels arches on a Bongo tend on there own to rust from the rear as the metal isn't treated (they don't use salt on the roads in Japan) so you end up with rusty wheel arches twice as quick :-( At which point you remove the extra trim, have the wheel arches repaired and throw the trims in the bin ;-)

However if you want to go ahead then eBay and Van-X do them I believe, but do a search on the forum to see the problems they cause!

Hi Geoff
Thanks for the reply, we had a bottom half respray as the wheel arches were starting to go... Not the best result for what we paid 😭, I saw a bongo a few years ago with chrome trims and thought they looked tidy 👌
