Job 8 : Enlarging the Front Wheel Arches

 

 

Hours Spent : 2

 

Before I could permanently attach the wings I needed to do some work to allow the massive 18" wheels to fit in.  I striped back the front of the car and removed the front wheels.  This allowed me to remove the arch lining which was too small for the wheels, I also had to hammer flat a lip that runs around the back of the arch and hammer flat the ridges that run around the arch.  The suspension strut will also need to be replaced with coil-overs, this will be done later in the project.
