'tis the way of all things. The trick is to want "it" less, this significantly reduces the chances of bad stuff happening, I find. I also wish I'd known you didn't like your chrome grill. I happily would have swapped you mine.

It's all right. Did the same thing and painted mine. Looks ok at the moment but only time will tell how good a job i've done. Did you take the emblem off to paint it? Couldn't get mine off without breaking the locating pins on the back.

Weekend just gone..
I fixed the broken heater hose, pulled out one of my front guards to see how much i could get out of the lip..



Not sure why it ripled so much? and my roller doesnt reach out enough so my mate is geting some 30mm spacers for his 240 so going to borrow them and see if that works.. if not ill will flatin them as much as i can and then bog them!!

But otherwise im happy with how the front will be sitting!!!

Tyres this WEEK!!!!!! YEEEEEEWWW



mine, my house mates (soon to be on 19x8.5 and 18x9.5) and my track 240 sedan under the car cover!!

because if you unfold the lip like you did its gona look like ass. better off folding in back in, fitting the wheels and tires on with it rolled and then if you dont have enough clearance use a baseball bat itbetween the fender and tire.

Yeah it'd take a lot of precision and luck to get those lips looking right. Roll it inside, then baseball bat, or set a lot of newspaper on top of the tire, lower it down onto the paper (from jacks) and jump up and down on the back of your car. That'll bend the fenders out enough sometimes. Some 240 guys around here have done it.

id like to see how those fenders come out might have some funky widebody effect on the lower edges. hammer and dolly with body filler could pull it off

Getting ten inch wide rims was the mistake I think. 195 tyres have no chance of fitting too.

with a good amount of camber, rolled fenders and 215's i bet it will tuck them camber plates are almost a must with a rim that wide to tuck without really retarded looking fenders.
