All that pristine original bodywork.

Oh well.

Not sure why the concern. I wasn't getting the tires under there with the original bodywork. Removing the original bodywork, modifying it, and then putting it back is as close as I was going to come to staying original.

And I guess if I was worried about my car being pristine and original, I wouldn't have started modifying it in February 1984, the month after I bought it. My pristine original suspension was mostly replaced with stuff you made, and my pristine 28K mile B21FT was yanked and sold to some local kid (who probably blew it up, for all I know). Life's too short to worry about such things.

are you going to keep the same opening profile on the rear? or will you contour it to be more round?

Not intentionally recontouring the rear wheel openings, but these are being hand-formed, so there is no guarantee that they will be shaped precisely the same. My main concern is that they are the same side to side as much as is possible. Of course you won't be able to see both sides at the same time except directly from front, rear, or overhead.
