14.1.1 - Adding Coombs Arches to a 420/S-Type ( Iain Buxton,  May 26, 2005 )

Modifying the S-type/420 rear wheel arch,(Coombs style)

From Iain in Reno: (In regards to installing Coombs wheel arches in the S-type/420)

Well it seems to me that the Rear Wheel Reveal is in order
here! I have some pictures on the photo gallery showing the
result. It is interesting that the original 5 inch wire
wheel with a 195 tire looks totally lost in that rear space
when the Coombs Spats are welded in on the S-Type!
I have new 16 inch by 6 inch wheels and 225/60R16 tires and
that gives the same overall tire diameter as original.
