Default Widebody over fenders on wagon?

Hi there,

I haven't quite seen anyone post about this specifically, but many of you know that 02-07 wrx/sti sedans can purchase over fenders like these:





Well I was just thinking, how hard would it be to fit those fenders onto a wagon? I sanded down my sedan fender flares to fit on my wagon and as seen in this picture they fit almost perfectly:



so is it relatively the same process with these widebody kits sold from APR, Kakumei, etc...? I'm not talking about sedan quarter panel conversions either, I'm talking about the actual widebody over fenders. Any feedback would be appreciated.


Thanks.

This is true, but the amount of work put into it will show if it's truly worth it. Hoping somebody has done this so they may chime in to see what their experience was with it.

Actually, I meant straight on from the front and straight on from the back, so we can see the " wide body effect ".

Looking good from both angles so far

Bumping this thread back to life, just bought the over fenders yesterday. Still gotta figure out what to do for the fronts but I bought APR widebody panels for the rear. Going to have to weld a sheet of metal to fit the groove to match a sedan rear quarter panel, then rivet the widebody in, mold it, and paint it. This will be a loooooong process but will be worth it in the end.

They're made by fiberglassmafia.com for the 06-07 wrx sedan. They have to be modified to fit but it wasn't hard.

Wow, nice work. Are you going to put a mild flare over the widebody? Your wheels still stick out a bit.

Are those just aftermarket front sedan fenders?

Nope, should only take about a degree or two to fit well under the fenders. They're chargespeed front fenders they're 50mm wider than stock wagon fenders, 25mm wider than stock sedan fenders. Rear fenders are APR widebody panels.

Yeah I'm still working on it. As you know there are not any widebody kits specific for wagons, only flares. So I have been doing a lot of fiberglassing to get it to the point where it will fit the grooves of a wagon. That takes a long time. I'm at the point where now I've panel bonded on the rear doors. I have to do some minor adjustments as the previous owner of the rear panels had the gas door covered so I'm trying to get that sorted out. But once I get the quarter panels bonded on I'll be ready to start laying down some duraglas, and then a small amount of body filler then we will be ready for paint. This is the last pic I took of it. My goal is to be completely done by the end of June. It's been a long project and it will not be an easy task to do so if you do it I recommend you either have a decent amount of experience or know someone with a decent amount of experience.

Dare I ask ...

If the gas filler door was covered over, how did you add fuel?

I'm re-adding it that's why I haven't panel bonded the quarter panel over fender on yet. Plus the car hasn't really left my work area since I started it but when I have left I just un-screwed the quarter panel fender.
