Default Finally Got My Fenders Fixed

Got new fenders and compressed flat the inner lip instead of the roller and had some body work to do a very light pull/flare and kept the original lines on the edge...then painted fenders, hood, front and rear bumpers and trunk lid and door handles, basically anything that was faded from the sun.

Need to go 215's on the front and go lower in the near future.

this car is one of my inspirations for my build. I got 18x9 +45 and 18x10 +20 with 15mm spacer. I was just looking in to doing my fender work a little too. Looks good bro. Dis u add any suspension kits or just fender work and megans?

Im on megans and cut the hole for the UCA..Going lower is actually a challenge as the rim is poking...so I will get some 215/35's and try a little at a time...can afford to jack up these fenders with the lips slamming on the edge of the fender..I may need to pull a little to tuck rim, without messing up the work that was just done or get new rims with not as agressive offset...who wants to do that. Thanks PD.

they are stock...from a member here. My other ones had the inner metal cut out and weakened it too much and I bent them so been waiting and saving to do this and paint other parts at the same time.
