I'm happy to learn more about this... I allways thought we have only have low arch and "high arch" cars... but Maire (the thread starter) speaks about shallow inner archs.... and I was refeering to the outer fender arch design...

Thanks for your help.


High (late) and low (early) are a clearer way to describe the 2 types of arches. The vender uses shallow for late, not sure why but the early would be deep I guess. Different points of reference.
