Hey does anyone have front portions of the front fenders available? I need the portion where the turn signal bucket goes in. I want to widen the front turn signal bucket about 1" so that I can stick some LED's in there. Since I will be working the front fenders this weekend.......timing will be just right.

Totally awesome build. Huge props.
I have to ask... is that driver's side cage tube gonna be a head knocker? Seems low and right in line with a helmet. Sorry, don't mean to be negative at all, pic just begged the question.
Outstanding metalwork. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Why not just slit the fenders right down the crown from the middle of the turn signal bucket? A lot easier to work with the original shape intact and one cut on the top.

Rudy mentioned on facebook that he's going to remove the A to B pillar bars after he's done with chassis work, they were there just to keep the chassis straight during fab.

Jeff yes I see what you mean. That would work fine if I were going to split the entire top front to back. But, I'm only widening the front half of the fender on the outside edge.
I think it will be a three step process. 1) add 916 flare 2) widen 916 flare 3) add widened outside edge.

Basically I will spilt the top but I need the original front outside skin to stay in place until I build the widened outside skin and then cut the inside "now" inside skin out.

WIDE you pick those tires? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif)

Your traction makes me envious... Can't wait to see the fronts go on!

I'm working on the fronts this weekend. I have to have the tire though since I can't have any rubbing issues. They're supposed to come in today but we shall see. I'm so stoked with the way it's coming out. You know you build it in your head and you think it's going to look a certain way........and then, after all that work it looks just like you imagined it......man that is an awesome feeling. I'm sure you know all about that! Once I have the fronts done then I will tackle installing the 7 radiators, then it's building a set of headers and down pipes for the turbos. I would like to get the car at least with the radiators installed and have a true roller by this summer......we shall see. But these fenders and rims have really put a lot of air in my sails. All of the work to this point has been hard and not as satisfying as seeing it come together with those fenders.
