928 bolt-on (or glue'n'smoothen) wide body kit + front splitter and side skirts

This is a story for developing a 928 conservative style wide body kit for our racing purposes as well as for our fast club racing street 928 cars. Story begins here and now, I enclose some pictures of the goals to reach:

Here is a photoshop sketch of the goal we try to reach.
-front splitter and side front air intakes for brakes.
-wide body a sort of GTS-style wheelarch parts but gently wider
-side skirts with exit-route for engine bay cooling as well as rear brake cooling intake

As a platform for the body parts I will use my oldest 928 I've owned and pushed hard among my other fast cars since 1990. The maximum offset for the wheels will be same as 930 / 965 / 964 RSR Wide body.

This means for instance following setups under the car:

regular 928 about ET57-60 wheels (+25mm spacer) with up to 255-265mm wheels front / up to 295-315 wheels rear

about ET45 wheels (+10mm spacer) with up to 255-265mm wheels front / up to 295-315 wheels rear

about 930-wheels ET25-35 or so (no spacer) with up to 255-265mm wheels front / up to 295-315 wheels rear

Here some pics of my 928 as sample with regular S4 body with 930 Strosek OZ-Racing wheels and 255-35-18 front, 195-30-18 rear. These will be covered with our becoming body set.
Bolt-on they are and they are not: bolts can be left visible or hided with body glue & sanding, but of course large part of the old wheel arch must be cut off. My car is very low, in pictures it must be supported for measuring with these now too wide tyres, therefore you understand the stupid too high Cayenne like standing position.

Other body works I have already done or which I have under process you can view here:

Story of my downforce plate project for my 911 cars and in future to the 928 cars as well.

We have 4 928-cars to finish with these, so the production for the multiple parts will be reality already for our own purposes.

If you are interested, stay tuned.
