Folks is a non ribbed rounded section guard ever fitted to any Ariels of the 32 on period? Certainly the alloy guards when appropriate are but I've seen a few images that indicate black guards of that section also with standard looking stays. Nev

The 1932 sloopers don't have a rib at front, i think 1933 was the first rib.

Thanks adrie. I thought I saw it on an upright with hand gear change. Is the rear guard similar? Nev

Nev, my VG32 definitely has rib free guards front and back. Nit too different from my model F 30.
