The shop is named Custom Auto Body and Fabricating
11210 N Cave Creek Rd PHOENIX, AZ 85020-1408
(602) 997-4985

Wish I could tell you exactly how it was all done, but unfortunately I wasn't around for most of it. The metal is the same guage as the rest of the body and they have done this to a few 914's (they do it well, as you can see).

This car was a total strip and build (modifications of a firewall access and fat fenders among other things) on an undamaged rust free body, so it was a solid foundation to start from and I cannot 'price out' the fenders alone since it was a ground up project.




Wish I could tell you more or give you a magic template, but these are (in my opinion) so much better looking than most of the fiberglass units I've seen I would never go another route.

Lee,

Haven't seen that beautiful 914 around the Phoenix area. Where you located? I'm up in North Phoenix, and do a lot of events with PCA.

Tooo sweeet!

What did you use to black out your door window trim? It looks nice.

Did you black out the door handles too?

Cheers
Kerry

Gerard - Being a native of Colorado I had to get back to the mountains - there was just too much oxygen at lower elevations, it kept getting all over my shoes (grin)! Happy to say the car is up here with me (though going nowhere this weekend, as it's snowing like crazy!).

Kerry - Just paint. When the chrome starts shining through in spots, I rely on good old sharpie markers !
