just curious to see if anyone has done a bumperpad widebody? I've seen some IMSA kits, any others? Has anyone looked into widening only the rear? just entertaining some thoughts I've had since some time back :-)

Not really to the subject but Roger Garrison put a bumper pad nose on a GT. Looked pretty good actually. I don't think the bumper pads get enough love.

There have been a few in the early years that were bumper pad wide bodies.

The first DGP versions were just that.

I have only seen two on the roads and not sure what became of them. One was in Indiana. They originally came in three stages from simple spoilers and air dams all the way to a wide body.

The race cars went to the GT nose as it has no lift and soon after the kits were made to follow it.

The pumper pad wide bodies are great looking cars but few were made and sold. The one in Indiana was the first one made outside GM and DGP. The guy worked for the GM plants in Muncie and it was painted silver and white. He got the kit through connections at GM and it was just a 4 cylinder 84 car. I saw it back in 1990. We were at the big Fiero show at the Indy Speedway that year. Nice guy and car.
