Can't help with the protectors, but they haven't got much in the way of striker parts available as of yet - i wanted a replacement front wishbone and they were unable to help, and said when they appear on the website they will be available, with no other clues of when or how much.
You might be a bit better off as you're closer to them and could pay a visit.

Is there any universal ones available?

Or maybe stick on material?

Don't know if that has been used before?

I used Grayston self adhesive Kevlar sheets as found here

It followed the curves well but you are limited to the 250mm height - wasn't really an issue though



Maybe two layers of Carbon wrap??

As others have said

Great looking Striker to.

The best colour too

When I brought my built striker it didn't have them either & still doesn't road git is starting to make a mess of the arches.

The orange (Tango) jester I am rebuilding at the moment had carbon fiber look arch protectors they seemed to work well

So thanks for the link above as well

Do you have the wide three piece rear arches or narrow single piece Craig?

I've wide ones in CF currently and could get some made locally in either CF or Kevlar if that's of interest??

No idea of price but could make enquiries

I used stick on vinyl - faux carbon, seems to work fine. They will no doubt need replacing as some point, but very cheap

I must sort that daft exhaust out!!

That's a shame - I think the guy will need a pattern in order to follow the curves correctly
