    Sneak Peek of the Cosmetic Surgery

    So, my baby has been in the shop for close to a month. I wasn't gonna post anything about the mods till it was all done but I figured everybody would get a kick out of seeing her under the knife or welder & grinder in this case. So I'll post progress to this thread as it happens.

    ----------

    The 1/4 panels are being flared 1.5 inches on each side to accommodate the 22x13's with 315/25/22 P-Zeros

    Nice to see some real custom work going on.

    Wide body STS.
    How is the bumper going to work with the flare?

    I've noticed on the mobile app you have to click on the individual post in the thread to see the pics.

    Re: Sneak Peek of the Cosmetic Surgery

    What about the rear doors...? Are you going to bring the flare evenly to the doors or will there just be a lip there? Curious to see from both angles.

    I wonder if it would have been easier / cheaper to get the 08+ rear bumper cover that is different from the 05-07 model than to do all the work to the one you already had.

    I didn't want those inserts with the reflectors. I want it to be completely smooth.
