Widebody process

Ok, well i wanted to know if someone could explain to me the process of getting the wide body fenders put on a celica. i wanted to know if they cut part of the fender that is stock and mold it in, what do they do?

reason being, my 18x8 rub when i got in large bumpbs, i can raise my springs but i want a low drop, but i wantted to know if i get widebody will this fix the problem. ..

next summer i may plan to get Full Kam kit with widebody.. ... .

i thinkn SIR Isaac answerd me question b4 but i dont know if he did. also will a body shop cut the inner wheel well for me or .what?!?! i just want the car to be as low as i can get it without rubbing the innner plastic frown

Depends on what you're talking about. If you are just adding fender flares or something like the APR kit. Either way to install correctly there will be some cutting involved. I'm sure the APR kit has complete fronts but I would think the rears are quarter panels and would require cutting to install.

No matter what kit you put on, widebody or not...your wheel well plasics wouldn't be moved. Best thing to do is to remove the lining completely. Then you can be SLAMMED

We don't have rear wheel wells on our cars, only that little piece of plastic. How does urethane and plastic warp? It doesn't...The front wheel wells being removed won't hurt a thing, I would suggest painting the inside though, to clean it up. As long as you don't have a CAI you'll be fine. Or as long has you have the watersheild on the CAI you'll be fine

go ahead and extend them... its just spicing in a longer route for the electricity to travel - but should be fine, as long as you are not going a hundred feet or further grin
