Custom Widebody Project

I decided that, since I'm putting my Celica away for the winter, I might as well start some projects on it. Right now I'm doing a custom widebody with a VeilSide body kit. I got some "F1" fenders and BRS fender flares, screwed the flares onto the fenders and then molded them on. I still have to fill the gap in between the fender and the flare. Then I have to start on the front bumper and the rear of the car. Here are some pics of the process. Sorry about the quality of the pics, I had to take them with my phone since I let my sister take my camera back to college with her. I will have better pics later this week... let me know what you think. Thanks. thumbsup

Thanks! I've been working on it in my garage... I haven't had much time to work on it because of work and all... but that took me about a week to do. It's still not done, I have to fill the gap between the fender and the fender flare and then prime it and install it. I actually paid under $400 for the body parts, tools, & accessories. It's not a bad DIY mod at all, just time consuming. thumbsup

I got the flares from a guy who had an extra set left and wanted to sell them. I think visionautodynamics.com and ebay sell universal flare kits. You're going to be modifying them anyway so they don't have to BRS.

the first question is how to get them, you cant anymore, they dont make them, and there hard to find!! Very Hard, Julia was lucky, she came across a great oppurtunity!!

Yeah, but for our cars, nothing looks as good as BRS, just isnt the same to grab some universal type!! And it looks better when you go to car shows and you saw BRS flares, not universal, one there made for our cars, two their rare, so that right there is awesome!!

I used some fiberglass bondo and then regular bondo on top to smooth it all out. Oh and thanks for all the compliments & thanks to Mike! thumbsup

How did you get the bondo to look sooo white and shinny or is it just my computer that looks that way? Did you primer it?

Very nice work Julia. You are going to do very well at the shows next year.
Did you ever find more pictures of this car? I looked and couldn't find any. All I found out was the owners name is Shawn and he is a member of Projek7. Couldn't find any pics on their site either. http://www.projekseven.com/content/ .

I'm not sure, but most people just get the universal splitter from APR and just cut it to fit their car. I didn't know you could cut a Carbon Fiber splitter until GOLDCELICA told me. You would think they would make one for all the more popular kits like yours so you don't have to cut one.
So how is it that you know more about cars than most guys do? Were you out in the garage working on cars with your Dad instead of playing with dolls like all the other girls as a kid or something?
I wish my wife was even half way interested in this hobby of mine.

Well I wish I had your skills. I paid $800 to have my door handles shaved. You probably could have done it for a few bucks in your garage huh?
