So after getting my new tires and lowering the car my rear fender decided to tear up one of my tires!!
So I rolled the fender lips IN but since the rear has a metal liner in it making it a two layer fender lip, I was retarded and cut little reliefs every couple of inches. BAD IDEA!!!
I then decided it looked so horrible I had to do something about it. I dont really like the looks of bolt on or riveted on flares so I decided to pull them back out and and mold them into flares.
Since I cut the relief notches I had to weld little peices of metal back in and hammer my fender lips OUT with a body hammer and dolly. (This took several hours) I also cut the inner metal fender liner back to clear my tires and tack welded it back into place up higher. I then ground it down and applied a couple thin layers of body filler. I still havent sanded them down yet as I am just going to wait until after I get some spacers for the front. Once I have them I can then pull (flare) the front fenders as well and will start doing all of my bodywork at one time.
I also had the car lower than you see in the pics. I used 2" blocks and the flares fit perfectly. Then I bought some coilover helper springs that bolt on via clamps to your stock shocks to try and stiffen up the rear and it ended up raising the rear of the car another inch or so.
Good news is that the helper springs worked great. Bad new is I have to rework the rear suspension to get the rear a little bit lower.
I also got a new exhaust put on the car. It is 2" from the cat back to a resonator installed backwards to a 2 1/2" section of pipe then to a Y and two 3" chrome angle cut tips. Yes, it is loud and it pops but that is what I was looking for.
Here are a couple of more pics of it so far.
I seemed to have pushed the neighbors grass pile down the block on accident. A guy stopped me down the block and yelled "Hey, there is something stuck under your car!" And when I got out here is what I found...Whoops....
I am going to be looking into a front chin spoiler. Not sure yet which one I will use. my friend has a couple Datsun ones I could try. And more than anything I have been trying to find a set of the Aussie RT72/MarkII tail lights!!! I have been all over the net and still havent found them. If anyone is looking to sell them or trade for my stock ones HIT ME UP!!!
