These Wheel Housings are the rear panels of the fender liners. They will rarely been seen, but do be careful turning the Chassis upside down  for the next few kits. When the Chassis is upside down, it will sit on these housing panels and they can be easily broken. I recommend supporting the front end of the Chassis on something so these panels are not damaged.
