    anyone tackled rusty arches themselves?

    Hi guys rear arches are getting a bit scabby on the ml270. I was thinking of grinding them back and treating them to stop them getting worse. Any thoughts?

    Chrome arches where to get

    I know the general feeling on them but I am looking for good quality ones that clip on and not screw on. They are going to be used to cover up some rust but it will all be treated and sealed fully but I won't have the funds to paint so chrome is my way forward.
