Some preliminary fitting with double sided tape. Can't wait to get these color matched and start cutting

They work pretty darn good I'm optimistic to the outcomes. Waiting for my two pairs of fronts to get here Friday and I'll post up more pictures. This time I'll mount up my low offset wheels and spacers to get an accurate idea of the overall look.
I'll let you know this week when I test fit. Initial thoughts are 10 inch + wheel with an offset of 15-20. My 9.5 inch wheels with a 28 et and 5 mm spacers still look small under initial fitting, and there is nearly 2 inchs to still fill.
I have a few questions since I've been pondering on this project. Basically I just want some measurements and some in progress photos.
Did you keep the dead on fender line, or in other words is the flare arch in the same place relative to the stock arch, just extended?
Also can we have some close ups of attachment points?
I bought two pairs of fronts, did you utilize the regular set?
How much finishing work did it take to get these to mate up nicely?
Sorry for all the questions, just gearing up to do this myself and I could use all the pointers possible
PM me if you want to email/text correspondence if that is easier

The Mk5 flares are actually done and will begin shipping next or the following week. We'll get started on the Mk4 kits this month and I certainly don't expect this process to take nearly as long
The reason for wanting to do the rear flares is to keep the car reasonably square as far as track. As is from the factory the rear track is actually nearly over an inch narrower then the front. Adding width to the front only will start to disrupt cornering balance to the car.
