    Factory fender is already rolled. You'd have to put a serious pull on it to get it as wide as the body kit.

    I'm really happy that you aren't messing with the actual factory body lines. Keep it factory widebody looking and you'll definitely get some orders.

    I'm fine with that to a certain extent, it really depends on where the measurements end up. What I was picturing was rolling the rear fender lips flat, maybe do a slight pull, and fit the widest rear wheel I could. If that same ~11" wheel, mounted up front, comes out almost flush on the front fender that you're designing, I would likely buy a set. I'm excited to see the finished product!

    One of the major points on this build is to adhere to the OEM body lines.

    This is my car before we started the build with the wheels and tires, the front is a 11in wide the rear is a 12in wide wheel even if you try to put the 11in in the rear you are still going to to have to pull an awful lot. If I am not mistaken some have tried to put a 10.5in in the rear and ran into some issues.It is also going to depend on the wheel manufacture.

    The front fender is close to the tire but it is not flush due to the suspension travel that will occur on the track.Also you will need the rocker panels because the way we design them was to flow into the fender. I don't want to discourage you but this kit is designed to mold from the front to the rear. When you see photos you will see what I mean. Maybe you can think of something we haven't and make the front work without the rear. Untill then Stay Tuned......

    Would it be possible to do the rear without the front?

    The only photos that I have now is of the Jig's .Because my car will not be fully finished untill April (Engine,interior roll bar painting etc...). The fabricator and I are considering releasing some photos of the jigs that were fitted on the car before we made the final molds. If we do this it will give you guys a real good idea of what this will look like on the car( Minus the rear wing and minus the front splitter) The pricing will be along with the photos.. I will know this week if we are going to do this. Which means to answer your question Early next week.

    We are considering it because a friend of mine who has a V1 is a drag racer.

    We will have to redesign the rocker panel due to the fact of the deletion of the front fender.

    We will re look at that option when this kit is finished.

    Any possibility of providing what size wheels/tires this will fit once it is done? What about offsets?

    UPDATE.......................


    Okay All.

    Here are some photos of the "Vanquish Body Kit"

    THESE ARE ONLY THE JIG'S That have been used to make the production molds and NOT THE FINAL PRODUCT. They have been painted and clear coated to protect them. So you can see what they will look like on the car.

    The Rear qurater panels will require a skilled bodyman to install, due to cutting and removing of the orig quarter panels

    The Kit will include:
    (Kit is for off road use only)(Fiberglass)
    1 Front Bumper
    Left and Right Fenders
    Left and Right side Rocker panels
    Left and Right side Quarter panels and rear Door Pieces
    1 Rear Bumper
    ( Parts will be primed and ready to paint )(each kit will have it's own serial number)

    The price for the kit is $4000.00
    (Does not include shipping charges)

    (Not included in the kit)
    The Heat Extractor hood will be $900.00
    The Front Splitter (not shown) will also be optional
    The Rear Wing (not shown) is also optional

    If you are interested in purchasing one of these kits Please "PM" (private message) me to discuss details

    (THE PHOTOS AND DESIGNS ARE THE PROPERTY OF "R&D Motorsports" and not to be used by any other party unless written consent is granted)

    THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR INTEREST!!

    updates will follow on the final completion of this kit.
