I was wondering what was up with your build. Looks like we have similar themes but yours seems to have all those extra tidbits and chrome. I'm trying to finish my widebody, singled 1jz, Megan/UAS by end of summer. I'll also be rocking Bersaglio but Mesh I 19x10 and 19x11.5. Hopefully you have good luck with the Easy Street management. Can't wait to see what yours will look like!

some people pmed me about the rear pull/flare, so ill try to explain as best i can since i dont have the pics of it being done..

the stock fender was first shaved and then cut vertically into many strips of metal like | | | | |

it was then massaged and pulled upward and given a general flare shape. the metal was then welded back together and the rest was done with fiberglass and bondo to smooth it out. then of course the quarter panels were repainted and blended.

i would have gone with a fiberglass flare, but i think it looks much more subtle this way and almost oem.

you can see that it was smoothed up to the body line


it comes out maybe 1.25"


as you can see, the tire changes everything. if i had adjustable control arms i could tuck the wheels with the pull i already have. but with the tire on and the stock arms, a 50mm widebody is needed. plus, i would want to ride low and i wouldnt have great traction (with a high hp motor in the future) with the crazy amount of camber needed.

same with the front.. too much camber needed


the stance would look great on the stock body though if it was a true 'vip' car


so if youre planning to do something similar with aggressive wheels, get the wheels and tires you want first, then make them fit the fender accordingly.

Yeah man I was eyeing the Mesh since the first day they popped up on their site then I made a few offers online and went in and paid cash. I'm looking to go auto pilot as well. Do you plan on chopping up your fenders again so you can tuck under the widebody so you won't have to camber as much? I'm using the same method.

yea, thats the idea. the rear quarter panel will probably have to be cut all the way up to the body line so i have tucking clearance and so the wheel can be as flush as possible against the vertex fenders.
