Thanks to Outcast Garage, I finally was able to order my authentic Chargespeed fenders. They stick out 20mm wider than stock. The car is finally going to the bodyshop soon for install & paint!

My car is currently sitting at T&L Autobody in El Monte, CA getting the bodywork stuff done.

Today we test fitted the Chargespeed fenders. Fitment is on point!








The problem is, with the way that Chargespeed fenders came out from factory, there's still quiet some width to the inner lip, which isn't going to give me the clearance I need to fit my wheels correctly.

So we took the fenders out...drew up some lines, and trimmed it down.







Tommy puttin in work!



Lip trimmed out perfectly clean.


We test fitted again, lowered my car all the way down. And now the clearance is on point.

Honestly I had/have both setups.
A lot of people who haven't had this type of air suspension setup would claim that they ride like *****, but they actually ride like coilovers if not stiffer than what I had (Stance GR+)

One is for my IS and the other one is for my Miata...or maybe I'll switch them on and off to my liking. Haha

Recently just refinished my wheels, going to rebarrel them again to slightly more aggressive specs.

Front Fitment with a 3.0" Lip:





Rear Fitment with a 3.0" Lip:




Looks like I'm going to be using a 2.5" front and 3.0" rear. Trying to do this without running much stupid camber.


And here's more detailed photos of the refinishing.
Wheels are not goldplated. They're powdercoated.
