custom ask sport widebody

well I thought I would make a build thread for the new widebody im working on.

It will consist of:

stage21 front fenders
AskSport widebody rear fenders, cut/modified and molded to the car
ask sport CF trunk
Border CF hood
Greddy lip
Greddy modded sideskirts
CF vent extensions
i figure I can post pics of the process.

I picked up the kit, not knowing what type of widebody it was.







there are some ruff spots ill need to work out, but its getting molded so im not too concerned.

a few test fittings of the rear.




I hope I can keep my greddy wing on it, not sure how it will look as of now...



Side vents are gonna be cut down so the greddy sides are seen. I'm thinking of cutting it down at the bodyline... not 100% sure yet.

some front shots




Been debating on how to paint the CF hood, either the whole thing or just part of it.




Im still not sure if I wanna keep the side of the ASK Sport rear, or completely cut them off...

1 word......EWW.

Your car looks good as is (minus the current front fenders and maybe the spoiler). If I were you, I would try returning it.

well I'm not trying to be rude, but I am sure not building the car for You, so no I'm not returning them lol.

Constructive criticism is always welcome, but comments about just put a stock spoiler and lip on... common I am not sheep in the herd. lets try to be creative and different. plus all these mods allow me to go wider with rubber and are replacements FG parts lightening up the car quit a bit.

more pics soon to come with more updates.

Spoiler shots, not sure if it will work, or if I like how it fits with the widebody yet.. I need some day shots outside.

For some reason that last picture reminds me of an Acura type r with mr2 tail lights.

If you do the widebody on the rear try to consider a different spoiler. The Greddy looks good on the stock body but a little weird on the widebody.
