a lot of the fronts seem to be off because of the curve where it sits on the fender. you can see the fender underneat the flare just a bit. maybe its just me or the flares are angled really of....

My front left just developed a little gap on the vertical portion right where the side bumper vent it. I believe it is due to more of the bumper that had to be cut to fit the wheels. And the lack of reinforcement caused the bumper to become a bit flimsy on the side creating a gap....If any of that makes sense.

yeah our bumpers are flimsy as hell. they bend and break like no other. and we want to reinforce it but with what. LMAO

n3o i might be doing that myself. just getting sedans and fabbing it up to the hatch but HTauto wont make them till 100 sets are sold and only a handful have been sold. it could take us forever so you have to deal with whats on the market or wait.

I'd buy them and fab them. I can understand where HT Autos is coming from, but still sucks for hatch owners. I did my part to help out.

Here you go.

Rear: I'm rubbing right where the rear bumper bolt Is.


Front: fender liner has now been taken out in the front portion, I now rubbing when turning in the back of the front liner so that'll probably go also. I've also cut the vertical portion of the front bumper.

If you can, try to get the liner all out and reinstall it higher (somehow). Fender liners are more important that what you think.

I'm trying to keep as much liner as possible. I don't like going without it.

i will but i'm doing research and trying to get my body guy to look over your guys progress. good to know whats going on with your installation so we can attempt to do it also and do it right.

he's pretty meticulous about the work he does. he doesn't cut corners

If you are rubbing at the rear bumper bolt which holes your fender to your bumper you can roll that or fold it and it should work? its just a theory of course.

the fronts is interesting cause you are just rubbing in the back. ever thought of aftermarket caster to see if that'll fix the rubbing in the rear? i have caster bushings and moved it so that the front control arm is a little closer to the front than hitting the rear. again this is just my suggestion.
