Lets see those non-factory wide body builds.

I have always wanted a wide body 911, so i'd like to see what routes people have taken to create theirs.

My thinking was IROC frt/RR bumpers, 930 fenders, and 930 rear metal... what else is needed in the mix? Front control arms?


Thanks all!

Bugbug! Pretty sure the Bug was born narrow. Not changing it back. All steel

New build - mostly composite...

The lack is steel, the white is glass. This was from last weekends Cars & Coffee.

tdw28210 Please tell me more, steel?, glass?, full 930 fenders?

If you can share what you used please, i'm trying to gt my head around this. I have seen many people post about how hard this is and how much work there is... i'm having a hard time seeing all the work needed. Bolting on 930 fenders should be pretty simple, the hard part I can see being fitting the rear quarter sheet metal.

So if your attempting a conversion you would need the following:

930 Front fenders
930 rear flares or 930 rear quarter? Which is better and why?
Fiberglass front and rear bumpers

What am I missing here? Any little bits and pieces?

What about suspension track width adjustment? Front control arms?


Thanks,

Here is mine, a 1972 that was converted to a short hood back in the 80's. It was a track car forever and is currently being converted back to a street car.
