Default MY 2011 STi WRX sedan FENDER FLARES / Wide Body Kit by HTAutos UK

Hi,

After numerous requests HT Autos have finally started work on 2011 Subaru STi WRX fender flares.
These wide body kits will widen the already wide 2011 STi WRX by another 35-40mm

This is the car before we start;





Started prepping to make a splash from original arches;

Will keep you updated on here and facebook on our progress.

Cheers for looking,

Mark @ HTAutos

Will these be hatch and sedan or sedan only? Really looking forward to this.

Also wondering if you have an estimated price point?

All arches now laminated.
This serves 2 purposes. They firstly give us a rough mould to make the arches, plus will be used on the backside of the arches for perfect fitment of the Subaru 2011 STi WRX.





Cheers,

Mark @ HTAutos.

Can't wait to see the final results!

Do you have an example of how the fenders flares will resemble?

Can we get some basic fender flares for the 08-10 hatch/sedan please?!?!?!?!?!??!?!

(I know you didn't get the 08-10 sedan, but flares like the karlton style ones from the 02-07 body should work on both)

Could be a possibility as we have an 08 hatch here?

Pretty upsetting to hear sedan flares only. I would totally buy a set of flares for the hatch. Really hope you can make some for the hatchback.

Now...are these "flares" going to be full fenders but wider like the Seibon ones that are 10mm wider or are they simply just flares?

They are simply just flares. Bolt or mold on

Hi,

Yes will be a 10 piece kit following the original fender design. Not quite a full fender, but fairly large panels.

Sorry not yet, but will be a fraction of the Seibon, Varis etc. prices.

Thanks, I didn't even know they had flares, but I do know they have expensive products. So I get your point.

Is there a reason why you guys do not just 3D scan the vehicle and CAD design the body parts from which you can CNC a perfect mold and pull parts off that way, instead of just doing it all by hand the old school way?

I know it costs more money up front, but the quality of the finished product is much better not only from being symmetric side to side, but you also get a better tool to make molds from. Plus if you do a CAD design you can also run CFD to ensure you actually putting out a kit that is aerodynamically stable....just and idea.

^ My guess would be because that would make dev costs go way up which makes product costs go way up, which they might not think is a good move.

You would be surprised how cheap this type of stuff is getting now days. Esp considering how high much higher the quality is of the tooling is compared to hand lay up.

I know not every company can throw money around, but for someone who has been around for years doing this that they would have in house equipment to perform these types designs...

Unless this type of equipment/technology is crazy expensive in UK compared to the states.

This type of equipment would only function for us on very few parts and would not be worth the investment. Besides, I have done car body repairs for over 25 years and I like the old school way.
Thanks for the info though
