Most people like widebody when there’s a use for it. Like actual racing. Otherwise if you need liberty walk flares to stance harder, probably won’t get the respect you’d expect

I remember fast track autobody in richmond did a metal widebody for a g37 coupe long before and have been doing a lot of custom work on highend cars. Could give em a call.

Personal preference. IMO, I like widebody and think Libery Walk kit is sick. LOL.
The pic you posted looks over-the-top, but I like it.

It's a ballsy mod though, once you start cutting your body panels, there's no going back. Most people either don't like it enough or aren't willing to cause your resale value goes down the drain.

Metal is kinda insane. Lots of money ... time and work. I wasn't aware there was a car in Vancouver that did it!

Widebody is sick. When done properly. AKA metal fenders, molded into the body, make it flow, etc.

Slapping on fiberglass overfenders with self tapping screws is not a widebody. It's a solid way to spend 10k to fuck your car.

Don't get me wrong, on a few cars the lines seem to flow really well with a couple of the liberty walk kits, and the Aimgain/Stancenation overfenders look sick of the BRZ/FRS. Other than that, it was a huge fad, that I think is slowly on it's way out.

Proper widebody has been around for more than a decade, and besisdes some of the ridiculous F&F stuff of the early 2000's it really hasnt gone out of style, and it wont.

RWM at Boundry Bay Airport will make you some metal fenders but it won’t be cheap.

THIS is an AWESOME, properly fit into the body to clear 345 width tires on 12" wide wheels on a race car.



This is stupid.

bolt-on widebody looks stupid, unless it is a mini cooper or something


molded widebody looks the best
