I'm at the steel work stage for my 1960's Giulietta Sprint. Unfortunately, the previous owner extended the original rear fender arches. Would someone be so kind as to give me the dimensions and distances to recreate the original shape of the rear arch?

Is it possible to buy a replacement for the rear fender arc. I have been browsing a lot of pages and unfortunately I could not find anything.

it might be worth posting a picture so we can understand what you need.

Thank you for your response . In the attachment I am sending my case to illustrate the problem. As you can see, my fender edge above the wheel has been cut and replaced by some non-original fantasy part from the previous owner. I would like to restore the correct shape of the arch, but unfortunately I do not know anyone who has the same car model in the area to make template. therefore I thought that if I had the distance of the edge of the arc from the center of the circle, my tinsmith could recreate its edge. I drew lines to show the distances needed to recreate the arc shape.

Another idea was to use the available sheet metal parts from the 105 model, but I'm not sure if the dimensions will fit. Anyone have experience using this shape on the Giulietta Sprint 101

Hi Termit, welcome to the BB

I missed this one earlier, sadly repro stuff for Sprints isn't quite at the Spider level yet and no there is nothing on a 105 that will work on a 101. The 101 wheel arch is wrapped around a wire bead and the turn under the wire is welded to the inner wheel arch.

I've got our January '60 Sprint in my workshop right now, it's an undamaged shell with minimal rust. I can get you photographs, dimensions and a paper tracing of the wheel arch if you wish ?

I've sent you a private conversation / message

Ciao

Hi
Attached are photos of the pattern and patch I made for a 1961 101 veloce.
The pattern was taken off the passenger side of the car, I mirrored it to check the driver side replacement quarter I was going to use and it was fine as can be seen in a photo of the wired patch panel layed over the replacement. (replacement quarter had rust in the beaded area).
Couple of other photos show formed lip and welded in place etc.
These aren't in order
You will have to patch the inner well also probably. This car needed it and I trimmed the inner back after the quarter was in place.
I can trace this pattern, mark and send to you rolled?
