Hi all;

just found this old thread about a guy that stretched his rear fenders on his first-gen Firebird....are there any other examples of people that finished a wide-body Firebird?

I'm thinking about what I can do with my car, but definitely don't want it to look over-done like these two photos, just a bit wider stance than stock even with mini-tubs. Thanks!!

This too is a bit too wide for what I want to do with my car;

Here's a cool link that shows one way to do it. The way they did flared the fenders on this car looks really good and flows rather than just sticking out around the stock wheel wells.

And here is another way which is much more subtle and less work, depends on what you're going for. It's not a firebird but should give you an idea.
