Guess I don't have one, but I'd like to stay under 2k before paint.

I'd say glass, but not if it cracks or shows badly. That's the original question. That complete rear quarter looks good but still has a seam to deal with.

Update is I chickened out. But now I'm revisiting the idea. This time I'm looking at glas but using eye bolts for a different look. Something similar to rwb. And I'm thinking of long nose as well. Not sure I can go that far though with all my other mods I want.

Good choice in my opinion RWB cars are great looking. I think a long hood RWB look would be amazzzing. Keep us posted.

Any opinions on this idea:


long hood with bolt on turbo flares (like rwb) and skirts (964 like rwb) and impact bumper rsr style rear end.

I like less rwb and more clean. Love the low purposeful look like this

If it was my car, I wouldn't make it wide. I would go, with what you got and make it look slick.
By slick I mean along the lines of yellow bird. Not nessesarily all out ruf style, but something like that, maybe SCRS style with turbo power.

I like ruf yellow bird, but I can't help looking at it and comparing to a wide car. I have to say to myself "where's the sex"? It's clean, it's even cool, but look at the turbo body from the rear quarter angle.......sexy.
Even these days, maybe even more these days the turbo wide body is pure purpose. You can't look at it and think its lame. Just is badass! Unmistakable and imposing. It's similar to the flared head if a king cobra isn't it? Don't screw with that thing, it'll bite you.
Yeah, gotta go wide.

With a widebody build you also have to think about wheels. So not only you will be planning on a widebody budget you must have tlhe wheels in that budget. Which are additional 3-4k

I can completely follow what you are saying.

Guess what, I got one of each in the garage. My flat black 930 and a flat black yellow bird style rod based on a Carrera 3.0.
They are cool in their own way. It sounds like you mind is made up, which is all that matters.

Kinein, I really dig the duck tail on that wide body.

I would go wide!
Get getty design glass front pre 73 RSR fenders. Long hood that attaches to post 73 latches. and screw on your rear quarters like ghost1001. That is prolly going to be your best bet. Get some CCW Wheels (excellent wheels and reasonable) and your good to go.
