    Thread: Coupe GT project continued

    1. 09-04-2009 04:44 PM #1
      Fenders in the process of getting pulled. Like alot of pulled fenders i've seen nobody keeps the factory line. I wanted to achieve the factory look to keep things subtle and clean. Also getting entire car resprayed and some bits shaved as well.
      here's some progess pics.
      inner lip pulled

      reinforcement\factory line added


      pulled about 1 inch

      Quality work! Good idea keeping the factory line. Even better idea adding some solid metal to do that! [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      fronts completed! They were pulled 1.25 inches. Now working the dents out of the body and going to get the entire interior redone.

      Beautifully done man.
      Are these the wheels you intend to keep on the CGT?

    5. 11-14-2009 09:59 AM #5
      going to widen the wheels 1 inch all around

    6. 11-15-2009 01:20 PM #6
      Widen with a spacer?
      Or with an upgraded rim?
      If so pics of intended wheels?

      I've owned 3 of these in my lifetime. One of them was the real deal quattro with the flared body. Wish I never sold it.
      Keep up the good work dude, it looks great. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
