Looks very nice, flare fit up is excellent. What type and size of tires did you use?

It is, but unfortunately I spend the weekends in Carlsbad with my daughters. Monday through Thursday days I am in the desert...

Hello,
Beautiful car!
Is it possible to tell us who's skilled hands worked on your car?
Also love to see more picks during the build.
What materials used for flares?
Did you strip the car to bone metal or didn't needed?
Please tel us more about any suspension mods to get the car to sit so nice and balanced.
Many Thanks!

Hi Guys. Kevin Mentzer at Automotive Innovations in Van Nuys did the conversion. The flares are fiberglass (unknown manufacturer) sourced from a buddies racecar years ago. Kevin put in a ton of time on the flares, bumpers, and tail to give them a factory finish. The car was not taken down to bare metal as the original paint was near perfect at only 34,000 miles and provided an excellent base. I'll see if I can dig up some more photos of the conversion...

Currently the car rides on factory suspension with Bilstein heavy duties in the back - sports up front. It actually rides pretty well considering that I have removed almost 500 pounds from the car...

I have a full RSR coil over setup with 935 spring plates, 935 front suspension and Smart Racing sways in the den that I will install next summer when it gets too hot to boost down here in Vegas.

Todd, the tow hooks are from Rennline. They are pretty trick in that they thread into recievers built into bumper shock replacements that act as crush tubes. The bumper shock replacements are lighter than the bumper shocks by about 2.5 pounds each too. I'm sorry that we could not meet up. My schedule has been pretty hectic as of late. Next time you are headed this way, let me know and I'll make sure I'm around.

Was surfing the web and saw this. I hope I did you right by suggesting Bob do the wheels. I thought it would be the most cost effective solution. Awesome car!! I like the fitment!

Cheers!
