Ok The front set are 3' 72-77 celica flares that is what is staying on front.
The rears are 3' 72-77 celica flares that i cut the lip off then glassed a universal 3' flare so about 6 inches wider im just smoothing making it look sweet. I will need to tidy up inside the guards which i will do over my holiday break and 2 pack primer it.

I really havent given any good angles in any of my pics i blame the space i had to stand in begining i have 2x2 car ports as you may have worked out just wish they were garages the lighting has been poor when i have taken pics every other time i think about it the batteries are flat. I will put the doors on this Sunday if i can be bothered i work 45- 50 hours every week so hard to be motivated to work on car but i am taking a whopping 17 days off over xmas so going for the finish line.

Ahh, got it, I misunderstood reading earlier in your post, thinking they were "for" a Celica and not "from" a Celica. Was hoping I could buy an off the shelf flair.

I also made sure i bought a spare set of the fenders in case i ever have a bingle. The 4 celica ones need a fair bit of work to be finished very rough but hopefully only never have to use them and a spare 2 universal fenders i bought them on ebay in case i have an accident so i can fix it the same. I bought all my flares on ebay all from overseas. The ones i got from USA were the universal and cheap i paid 100$ delivered to Australia but i think they were about $60 in the US. The celica ones were about $200. I had to cut every fender flare to make it sit flush and bolted, rivoted, and glassed them to the car. Don't be deluded by my build it has taken hundreds of hours and a lot of designing blending on the doors to make it look any good just purely glassing on and smoothing out looks wrong i needed to make it look like a real car rather than a poor body kit. You may find there is just as much work as installing a complete bodykit so be warned there are no shortcuts because a half done job isn't worth starting.. This is a cheap option but requires lots of labor and a good eye to make it work.
Tip Design your car from the wheels up only i can not stress this enough! Do not just make your car wide with intension of wheel shopping you must buy the wheels first if you want it to fit and look right.

Did you just fiberglass the 'glass flares onto the poly front and rear bumper extensions? If yes.then I think you may have a cracking issue down the road as the poly expands and bends more than the fiberglass.Has anyone else tried this? You may be better off pulling moulds off the body and casting the parts up out of all glass.

I am confident i wont have a cracking issue i drove he car to work a few months ago and thrashed the car around over speed humps even had air. The only part that cracked was the only part i didn't rivot which i since have. I havent glassed it directly to anything everything is held on with rivots screws and bolts it won't fall off even without fibreglass. There is a lot of strenth in my build i would happily hit any part with a rubber mallet and be confident it will stay.

The only part now that is formed against polyeurothane is the bottom 2 inches of the bumper. I had to rebuild my nose when i bought the car i didnt have the flat piece that was all broken and i drove the car for years after i fixed it so i thought about that all the way along. I have a friend that has done the same to a metal car now that is where you will have some cracking problems. Cracking is due to loose fit or too much filler instead of glass I have done my best and avoided this.

I have actually shaped the rear flares now and blended them nicely still got a day of work to do on them as will 2paqck it same time i am very slow i know. I also bought a rear diffuser so i am keen for it to arrive for a pontiac aka commodore R8 but will chop up my bumper to fit it. This is a photoshop of what it looks like on a stock GT.
I bought it from an aussie power seller but i am still sceptical of it as the pics were not of the product but pictures of cars and no description so see how i go fingers crossed that i don't get screwed. It should arrive tomorrow.

That's what I love about you Australians, as a culture you seem to be very "do it yourself" oriented. Nice work, can't wait to see the finished product...

I am working on a perfect underbody to match. The car is on axel stands i put the wheels on to see my clearences have about 2 inches up so i wont be scraping.

I am going to leave the diffuser for a while as it is only rear bumper and can paint that again on its own. I think i am going to enjoy the car as is for a while before i redesign the rear. I will hold till next summer i might do a tad more than just a cut install it to tweak it bury it deeper into the bar. I plan on spraying rest of it with hi fill sanding it back and spraying it soon I am happy with my modifications as a base for further changes.

I see the evolution of my car in this thread and I knew it wouldnt just look right just bolting these parts on. It really has taken some tweaking to get the design i had in mind into the project. I also couldn't stand the idea of having it not perfect so that is why i am putting so much effort into under the car. I have a day of sanding more before i reglass the rear inner guards and another day of sanding resining and wait another day sanding again after before i redo the front inner guards. I will then spray rubber paint over the stock and the join and paint the rest making a very tidy underbody. As for an amateur i still can't let build quaility suffer both sides must be the same and it must look right if see things that need tweaking i must do it as i can't be thinking about what i should have done wishing i did. If i didn't think this way i am sure i would be driving it long ago wishing i did more. I am sure a lot of people were not sure whether my car was going to look any good from the first pic i think i have come a long way. If there was a bolt kit on i would have bought it.

I finished sanding the underbody to perfection i am proud of it and painted on some more resin to waterproof it all properly before sound deadening it tomorrow. I will also repaint whole underbody as bought 6 cans of spray paint for what i don't sound deaden. The car is almost finished i will high fill 2 pack it tomorrow. The shaping is finished the only part i have to fix is some cuts in the bumper where previous owner cut the bumper to fit the licence plate ours are bigger i am going to fix it to original and and do something with my plate instead so it can still be read but fit in the space. I might even take some more pics tomorrow depending whether or not i can show a complete car as if i decide to paint it in a booth i will put the car togther to drive it there. I will prime it athome here tomorrow but ummingand arring over doing the color coats here.

Glad to see you're still making progress - it will certainly be one of a kind.

Let's see some pics when it's back together.

I have painted the underbody the inner guards the brakes control arms etc and half of the bottom of the car the rear i need to degrease to perfect it. The underbody rear can wait as it isnt bad and im talking under the car the inner guards are done in fact the whole car is. I never got the primer on i took all last week off to finish the car but did well finished the bumper too. I havent installed the diffuser as i am on the rush for completion it will be project B. The car is ready for priming and painting i hope to add some color to this thread very soon. Working 6 days again this week so hope to prime it next sunday and start cutting back for painting the following weekend. Well that is the goal to be done and bling in a few weeks. I do have one concern about my front if a low profile tyre scrapes in front i may have to lift the front. I am thinking i will be ok but haven't bought the new tyres yet as presently have 40 series on front for test fit and it is tight worrying about scraping can easily go downsize to 20-25/245 which i am sure then will be fine. The rears are no problem as i built the rear around the wheels and can fit as fat as i can afford on those rims. The color has been decided

The pics are aweful and i do have black paint over front guard and from underneath as sprayed all the edges before the sound deadner. The shape isn't coming thru in the pics and even looks wavey due to both layering in specs of paint over the top of the primer on front and hitting it a few times with paint. The rear looks like the wheel is against back or guard but it isnt. It looks more belled in the pics and doesn't flatten out like they look in pics. It is all rounded smooth and ready for paint just with the 10 million colours it is at present the shape can't be seen. The only thing that needs another tweek is under he front bar where i removed my glassing and decided to simply bolt to the car. Didn't look at it again till the pic and i knew i had a bit to do one side would have picked up on it before it was over. The mouding all fitted in but i have some new bits so will need to cut it up again I did um and arr over smoothing out the trim this week but i spent all the time dremmeling the shape right and the clock is up for now going to paint it. I did get a visit from another PFF member last night and said it is looking nothing like the pics and he is right i think it maybe a real surprise to see it after it has been blocked and painted up. There will be further mods in the future as i may open the vents right up in time but i am very happy with the look of it now. Most here would want a fatter wheel on rear that will be a future investment for now the current or a wider spacer i am liking the funny car look with present wheel spacer.

Looks great (love the color) but I'm wondering why you chose not to eliminate the belt moldings while you were glassing in the flares. Just esthetics I know but it would've cleaned up the lines.

Still nice work, man!

BTW, are those Jim's (AusFiero) side vents? I didn't know he was still doing them.

In Australia the wheels must be within the guards you would be surprised what gets knocked back on rego here.
No point tubbing if it doesn't look tubbed imo i had it flared and it looked pseudo. I can put on even wider wheels or take up the gap with an inch wider spacer i plan to eliminate spacers altogether but will look at hubs and wheels again with rotor upgrade.

The molding looks like it belongs so far haven't shown a pic of it with molding on. I didn't eliminate the trim because i wanted to keep the car as fiero as possible it was a thought all the way along to remove it but every smoothed fiero i have seen has had wavy lines and am well aware what is required to get it perfect i am not feeling up to it and don't think it looks good enough for the effort i would rather do whole kit.

The heavy pitch you may notice doesn't interfere with the space in my wheel arches note how high i started and where it finishes and how much wheel i really can fit under there with no rubbing. but i love the funny car look I also have plans for a rear diffuser, bonnet and hood scoops but i just want to enjoy the car a while.

I need to either buy a bigger spacer or fatter wheels but i will wait till i sort out new brakes before i do that as don't wish to restrict myself to parts.
