Anyone know where to get a passenger side rear arch liner? Would a MK1 golf fit?

VW did not fit a liner on the rear passengers side just the drivers side to stop dirt etc getting stuck in by the pipes.

The Mk1 Golf and cabriolet did not have a liner either.

what you can do is make a chicken wire mould to fit the arch in the shape of a liner then remove it and cover it in fibreglass.
once set you have a liner you can fit.

What do you need an arch liner for, there can only get dirt behind, stay wet and rust the car quicker.

Just dry it well with an electric heated fan and seal it with sealant and cover in bodyshoot or under protection or wat even you call it.

Just make sure all the seals and cracks are dry before sealing them off.
