Here's mine... I think the front of my car actually might need to come down just slightly.

It's weird because the stance looks OK in moving pics, and this stationary one from 2 years ago, but I think my rear bushings are starting to deteriorate, because it seems to be settling more in the back at rest...with slightly more negative camber.

Here is mine, new wider slippers in the rear,... I installed some H4s last night and the look (stance,..) is all together different.

Thank you for taking the time, i guess i was looking for this answer. The word right. The reason why I started this thread is because I found a 82 tub salvaged. I want to keep it on the road. I was planning on converting it to a 993. I got the tub for almost free. So when i build the body for the car i wanted to build it right. that is why i start from a scratch book. I didn't want to simply throw the fenders on and call it a day. And i know most will say that i will be waisting too much money and etc. but i gathered the parts for 3 years now, and all i'm missing now is the engine. Plus the body is not even finished yet. So i'll take my time. I'm not looking for perfection but i don't want it to look like crap also. It is most likely will be a track car with some street riding involved.

thank you again for answering my question.

3. The relative gaps of 1 and 2, referred to as the rake.
4. The gap between the front fender lip and the front tire, as viewed front-on.
5. The gap between the rear fender lip and the front tire as viewed front-on.
Like many things in this world certain proportions look "just right". The right stance is one that to the beholder gives a purposeful, perhaps sporting appearance. In most cases I would say this is not a stock stance as the factory tunes the suspension for a compromise of comfort/noise/handling etc. rather than purely for aesthetics. The "right stance" for me is something that looks more aggressive than stock but not so that the tires disappear into the fenders. Some air between the fenders and tires when viewed from the side is essential for me. Slightly nose-down in rake with tire filling almost to the fender lips when viewed from the front and back. Cheers, John

fwiw while checking tire to fender gaps, it may be obvious later race ride height alignments, rim offsets or tire size changes can alter where the tire is seen in the fender.
Good luck with the project.
