A particular favourite place for the Type 25 to rust is around the front wheel arches. It’s no surprise really; scuffed by drivers and passengers above and a haven for road salt and stone chips underneath.
Some owners will get lucky and find a bus or van that has survived with just a few scratches, but for most of us, there’ll be plenty of crispy metal to tackle.
Help is on hand though, with these great quality complete front wheel arches from Heritage Parts Centre. Supplied in silver weld through primer they are beautifully pressed and ready to fit. When it comes to cost they also represent fantastic value for money, at £72.50 per side.
