Hi all,

Thanks for your patience with the production of the A45 aluminium arch guards, I am pleased to say that I have received the first batch today from manufacturing!

This first batch has an anodised satin black finish, manufactured in AW5083 'marine' grade aluminium.

I will test fit them over the weekend, and if I am 100% satisfied then I will begin shipping orders next week. Fitment is pefect!

Each set contains a pair of arch guards, adhesive tape, alcohol wipes, and retaining clips (temporary whilst tape bonds)

For forum members I'm offering these sets at £40 including 1st class recorded P&P, please PM me your name/address and i will send you payment (paypal) details.

Forum moderators.. If this violates any 'vendor' policy please let me know, this is not my job, this is a 'one off' to fill a need I had for aluminium arch guards like many other members.

Update 08/11/2020

I can now confirm these are also known to fit the W177 CLA45, and W177 A35** as well as the W177 A45 and A45S


**modification required

Update 27/11/2020

I have had feedback that the A35 fitment is tight and whilst can be made to fit does put more stress on the tape holding it, so I advise making an additional hole (pics to follow soon) when fitting for an A35. I hope to incorporate the hole to comfortably fit both A45 and A35 in a future revision.

Cheers,
John

Hi John

Great work - sure you’ll have plenty of orders!

Would be interested to know if these would fit CLA 45s plus... hoping to take delivery of mine shortly

I'd like to know if they fit the CLA45 as well, maybe we can work something out for a test fitment. :)
I’d also be interested to see if they fit a CLA. I could do test fit for you depending on where you’re based?

Hi, let me see if I have any plastic sheet left to make a set and I will PM you. The plastic ones are functional but do scratch easily :(

Just sent you a PM John as I've changed my mind on the plastic ones and have decided to go for the aluminium instead.
