His name is Duncan. I believe his screen name is Dunk. He does a ton of road crouse racing, hence the need for the meat. Really cool guy. He's here in the MAIC.

This car is certainly not "hacked" up. It is done tastefully. The 275's are sitting on CCW's if that gives you an idea of the degree of this car.

I've searched but no success, do you have a link by chance to the guy who did it?

Of course, I'm not sure I'm ready to hack into my fenders yet. It was easy to get past that mental block on my Jeep, but sure I could bring myslef to do it on the suby...
The front fenders are just one piece of metal.. you can cut and hack them away without any issues.

The rear fenders have a pinch weld with the inner fender well. When you cut you need to either just cut the outer fender and then pound and stretch the inner fender to meet the cut and then re-weld.

Or what I did was cut both the outer and inner fender and then had a piece of metal welded in to bridge the two.

Sounds just like my cherokee. The rear wheel well was the same way. When I cut it, I did a "pizza" cut into the pinch welded area making tabs, and then folded those tabs over. It keeps enough of the pinch seam in tact, and then there is no welding.

Again, not something I am ready to do on the Suby, but something to think about.

Ah yes. Those fenders would work up front but you'd still have to deal with the rear. Very true... very true. I stand corrected. Please post pic up and pics of the install progress as you go along. I'm interested as well.

We did indeed run those flares, we have since switched to these..







They are conciderably wider than the previous fender flares we ran and since we needed to change the geometery of the suspension we had no choice as with the new ride height being 2" or more lower than we have previously ran we needed a bigger flare to cover our nasty tires.

We have been working on a new motor/turbo config as we have only been running a small turbo up till now. The existing setup has been pulled and put on a stand as a running spare (GT30r/Cosworth motor).

This photo was prior to the new motor/turbo setup being installed (custom Cosworth motor with a even more custom turbo )

What's hanging out is the power steering pump

Well the car doesn't have it's front splitter or rear diffuser attached in these pic's, if you look at the first picture you can see the thread certs for part of the front splitter mounting. The splitter actually is level with the side skirts and runs with the rest of the cars flat bottom.

IMO... the car above is the most beautfiul Subbie I have ever seen. A 3.1415926 million watt candle light bulb has went off in my head.

i was wondering why there were so many holds... but it makes since to be able to drive it around and not worry about a billion dollar/one off splitter breaking.

I will probably wait till spring to get it done. No need to run wide tires in the winter.

It splits at the rear doors so you can still use them. Thanks, I'm really happy with how it turned out.
