I was looking at my 86 N/A RX7 and thought that it would look kinda sweet if I could do a body mod of puling out the fenders at the line by about 4 inches. And when I say at the line, I mean at the crease in the fenders. I want the fenders to sit out from the door by at least 3.5 inches.

My question is...Has anyone seen a body mod on a FC like this before?

Let me make sure I understand you correctly.. you want to "pull out" the stock fender for a wider look??

Im not sure I could "Pull out" the stock fender...I may need to cut and add new metal. I want the "entire" fender to sit out by 3.5-4 inches. Not just the wheel wells.

Ok I got it now.. Don't do it! I just can't imagine what that would look like..Go out and buy a pair of Mariah Motorsport fenders, Tri-Point wide body kit, FEED fenders or even Corksport..

The time and energy spent on what you're trying to accomplish is better spent buying one of the above.

Hmmm...I'll take a look at the prefab stuff...although, I am on a budget and most of those kits and fenders are really expensive. As for the look, I was going for something like a car I saw in import tuner.

The first car on this page....the hipermax car. You cant miss it.

That's certainly not a "stock fender" rolled out.. Check out [URL=www.mariahmotorsports.com] These aren't as expensive as you think..

Save up, work overtime, do what ever, just don't waste time and money trying to fab something that already exsists, fab time will cost you much more in the long run-trust it.

Yeah...the mode 6 os sweet...But I was thinking more squared off where the fenders meet the door. Again...it's just an idea that was rolling around in my head the other day. But thanks for your input bro. I'll think twice befor I make any sort of decision.

Well...I did come here to find out what works...so if you guys say I'm better off going with something thats already in production...then I've just scraped me cheesy *** idea. Thanks for the input Bro's. I'll go with your flow.
