I need to do that on my 68 Firebird since somebody butchered the fender wells at the bottom for big tires

Are they the Harwood ones you were looking at?

Looks really good.

Do you plan to have the car painted while it's there or is that a later porject?

Hmm... wondering if those are MAKO legal? :scratch: They might be nice to repair my messed up LR qtr and lengthen them at the same time.

Harwood did a great job, has a body line, and fit pretty good. Yes you have to cut to fit and line it all up but it was nice piece.

They real look good.

I'd see about getting some sealer on those quarters to help protect the body work if you don't plan to paint it till next year.

I see you got a new hood.

Are you going to leave the 69 rear spoiler on your car?

Fiberglass limited to hood, trunk lid, and bumpers. Of course, I suppose you could slip a rule in there during the middle of the night. :smt015

The fender lips wouldn't be replacing the qtr's, just the lip. Never the less, I did some measuring and they would be too wide for that tire.
