      Hi guys, sorry for my English, but here is few pictures of my DBP R32 2004 project builted by JA Tuning in Montreal (Québec, Canada).

      Project R32 with 6" wide body with OEM bumpers and sides skirts modified. As far for suspension is H&R coil-overs with ECS Tuning rear control arm. Brakes are ECS Tuning Stage 5 in the front and Stage 1 rear and wheels will be finally custom made. Tranny got a Peloquin LSD with twin disc Clutch Master and the rear diff has a Peloquin LSD and a Blue HPP. Turbo kit is completely custom with a fully built engine. Engine management is tuned by Unitronic.

      I bought this car Salvage, Not a Smashed car but the car got fire in the trunk and had 500 miles, so I striped the car, here is some pictures of what it looked when I finished to clean the interior.
      Sorry everything it's in French. I hope you guys will like it !!! :mrgreen:


      Here is some pics of the parts:



















      Here are the pics of the project:

      Thanks a lot buddy, One thing I can tell you is that it's taking a **** load of time and patience to build somehing like this. Because I want minimum "BONDO" on the car and if possible none so it's all builded with metal.

      I wish I had time for a project like that. I haven't even managed to fix the rust holes on my E30 let alone do some fun projects. Oh well, it has all the important stuff - go fast and stay fast parts.

      How will the doors open with the molded piece on them?

      I'm sure you've already thought of this but if you take the fender extension into the door, then surely the door won't open so you'll have to notch the blended part and change the look to the point where it won't look right. Otherwise for effort and trying something new. Good luck

      He might have to go with a LAMBO door setup to accommodate the front fender flare door extension.

      Very nice ... can't wait to see the finished product. Are you planning to run a staggered wheel setup or 275s all around? Based on the size of the front fender, looks like the latter, but wanted to check anyways.

      BTW, maybe you need to push out the rear wheels a bit further out to get the flush with the fender look

      Already tought of that and the fender will be built in consideration for the extension part that will be molded on the door, so the door will open normally. It already open properly at this moment.

      Right now it's 235/35/19 and 275/30/19 rear but in a near future I want 325 in the rear and 245 in the front on Porshe wheels

      It's going to stay Deep Blue Pearl with Black Magic Pearl front grill, half hood, roof and mirors.

      Thanks for the good comment everyone!!!

      Finally, someone does a metal widebody. Props for doin it the right way and keepin' it classy. Good width, nice shape to the flares, proper extension of the fender inners. I am impressed.
      Yeah, yeah, we get it. No, really, we do. We're all really impressed.

      Throw that twin turbo Bentley W12 in the back - that should take up the rear track a bit more.

      wow cool project, very meticulous work!!! Can't wait to see the finished product!!!

      Question: Wouldn't the fire alter the integrity of the sheet metal on the car? I'm no chemistry expert but I would think the fire could weaken the metal on the car.

      I was thinking that...look at the very first picture...at the line of the roof in front of the sunroof opening. And this doesn't even seem to be where the hottest part of the fire was. Sure hope OP addresses that prospect.

      Talk about ambition. Looks like you've got a good grasp on what you need to do though. Definitely will be watching this one.

      I agree. I am hoping to find a salvage one and build it up as well

      I would like to know how you got an R32 into Canada in the first place. I looked at bringing one in and had no luck. Good luck on the build.
