    Rear wheels catching

    Nobody got a guide to removing whatever needs removing to stop tyres rubbing in rear arches ??

    If not i'll just attempt it with no guidance, but it'd be nice to have a guide.

    Waiting with anticipation

    It rubs on the bumper bracket.

    You can see where the bumper bracket needs to be ground back

    That shows where it rubs.

    I hav'nt ground any off as it only rubs when its fully loaded.

    Just going to take an angle grinder to it at some point
