They are “Cosmic” wheel arches. I’ve seen some aluminium copies come up every now and then but can’t see any at the moment.

You can get fibreglass copies from here

DON'T DO IT..... A PO fitted something similar to mine years ago and I've regretted it ever since. Removal will involve pretty much complete paint job as well as welding smoothing etc.

Cheers, Ian
