Wheel Arch KitAugust 11, 2018
So I found this aftermarket Yeti wheel arch kit online and didn’t hesitate to buy it.
Where I did take my time though was in figuring out the best way to attach it to my wheel arches.
Screwing or pop riveting is out of the question!
So the choices can only be some form of all-weather glue or double-sided tape. I’ve gone for the tape.
But this arch kit will need five rolls of it.
The online reviews are unanimous… this tape is what I must use if I want plastic to stick to the outside of my car. And still be there in five years!
Here on Amazon if you need it.
I also used it to attach my roof spoiler
Getting cleaning is the first thing to do.
Every wheel arch needs to be wiped over with a spirit
Okay! So I will brush all that out as well then.
So let’s now unpack the wheel arch kit and get the tape ready.
It’s one arch at a time, of course. Slowly slowly. Carefully carefully.
This double-sided tape means business
And the kit itself is a good fit.
I don’t forget to undo this screw…
Then tuck the new plastic arch underneath and retighten…
Okay then! I won’t.
All in all I think it looks good and so worth the money (about £80 with the five rolls of quality tape).
Feel free to stay tuned for more modifications I have planned.
You can see what I have done so far, here: Yeti Customisation
If you want the double-sided foam tape it’s here on Amazon
And I am always interested to hear about your Yeti, customised or not.
