Thanks for the pics, looks great. Your body shop has done super install & finish work. I am happy it worked out for you and you are pleased as I bet you had some anxious moments. The results look great.

Interested to hear what you discover about the BS liners. I am sure there must be a way to make them fit. It just might not be too obvious at first. Sometimes you have to be pretty imaginative and adaptive when modding. Just jamb them in there and get the nail gun.....OK never mind....lol.

Have you decided what you are doing with your wheels and ride height? More decisions and another wait. It will be worth it in the final result.

One down (almost, the hardest part at least) and seven more to go.

Congrats on being the first!

Wow! That looks OEM. Can't wait for the suspension and wheel setup.

Thanks, Mort. I really am happy with the outcome. Once I get the wheels in order, I'll think I'll be a happy camper.

The BS Liners: So these don't fit well and definitely need trimming and hole drilling to make work. After about two hours of work, this is what I've come up with:





Wheels: I'm going to relip the rears to go with a 3.5" inch lip which will make the wheel poke 30mm more when mounted without spacers. From there, I'm going to run a 5-12mm spacer depending on my finals clearances with a 295/30/19 on an 11 inch wheel. I could go with an 11.5, but A) don't want that big of a stagger between my front and rear wheels, b) don't really want to run a 305 (it's going to be too tall and IMHO make the car look like a dragster) and c) Don't want to risk any sort of rubbing since we are dealing with fiberglass.

For reference, this is what a 40MM spacer looks like with a 19x10 +51. Do not worry, the car was not driven like this... Just wanted to get an idea of where I stand.



In terms of suspension, I'm currently on H&R Springs with 5MM spring pads. With the taller 295/30/19 and more aggressive offset, I think a lot of the height will muted. I have no plans to go to a coilover setup. Ever. I've never found a coilover in my life that rides as well as OE suspension.

I legitimately could not agree more lol. I have to pace myself though. This definitely set me back a nice chunk of change.

1) Arkym Front Lip in Carbon
2) Then *maybe* a carbon trunk spoiler (I forget which one I like lol it likes swoops up)

Nice to see someone actually do it but to me the rear bumper part just doesn't look right (no offense) where the arch comes down into the two lines on the rear bumper.


The door and the rear quarter panel look fine but the rear bumper part needs more work imo as they look out of place. See the silver one below I think the lines need doing like this to make it look factory.

Neither am I actually. Wheels will get attention soon enough though.

Aahaha it's funny you bring these pictures up. I actually walked into the shop with these pictures printed out and told the guys this is exactly what I didn't want on my car. If you look at this car more closely, you'll notice that the rear fenders a "bubbly" while our front fenders have a very angular, chiseled look to them. IMO this is what looks so dramatically out of place on that car.

Maybe it's just the pictures I've posted, but in person, there's isn't a thing I'd change about how the rear bumper was molded. I guess this proves the point of different strokes for different folks. No offense taken at all, by the way.

If you'd like, I'd be more than happy to post some close up pics of the rear bumper to quarter panel area.

If these fenders are made to order, I would assume that's why the fenders differ so much. Its someone literally making these one at a time. Too bad the BS fender liners didn't fit.

These fenders open up a whole new ball game in terms of aggressive wheel fitments. 19 x 11 ET 25-35 should be fairly flush with a 295/30/19.

I can't wait to see what wheel setups members run with these fenders.

Thanks man. I'm really enjoying the new look. Yup - some more carbon is definitely the plan. I'll be getting an Arkym rep lip from RW Carbon in the future.

I also plan to go with gloss black trunk badges and emblem. Since I have gunmetal Works, the chrome just looks out of place right now.

My plan is 3.5" rear lips, powdercoated in Tiger Drylac Series 38 Argento Metallic. This is the powder currently on the lips but obviously since I'm getting new rear lips, those will have to be powdercoated to match.

The plain will be 19x11 +21 with a 295/30/19.

The gunmetal may not pop in the pics, but in person they're actually growing on me a lot. We'll see if I change my mind down the road...

Thank you. Yes, I agree on the painted side markers. Been thinking either that or clear. I just can't seem to find anyone that sells the painted ones. However, I have no plans of updating the mirrors as the facelift ones don't really do much for me. Would definitely rather put that money elsewhere into the car.

Looks sick bud! With the widened rear wheels it will look great. Are you lowered on anything at the moment?
