By my count you are up to 9 kits so far, and many more are left slobbering, drooling, and saving, so i think it was proved the interest was most certainly there !

Looking into the widebody kit for a notchback.

On MotorTV's car, on page 12,

"The front wheels are 18x8 with a 22.2mm+ offset
The rear wheels are 19x11 with a 9.5mm+ offset
Rear tire size is 315-25ZR-19"

Is this accurate?? and that would be for an 84-87?? Would an 18x11 w/ 11mm offset (315/30/R18) correctly fit this widebody with an 88 cradle swap into a 84-87?? I would hate to order these rims and it be way off from the body lines.
Thanks

hey archie,
how long is the wait for a wide body kit (with front fenders) for a gt.
also when you ship is it door to door or greyhound?
lastly is it necessary to get a set of fiberglass door skins or will the kit hold up on the stock skins. (i plan on driving my car almost every day)
thanks

Hi All... I'm back in action!!!! Finally!!!!

Have I ever told anyone how I hate winter and this country I live in. The weather sucks so bad!!! One day its nice at 24 Deg Celcius so you plan to do some work on the car the next day... Low and behold, it's the May long weekend and it SNOWS!!!!

Anyways, the weather has finally decided to cooperate, and I got some work done.

All the pieces are sanded and ready for the first coat of filler primer.





I figured I would bodo up the dors and make them straight... Were they straight? NOT!!! You have to love fiberglass!!!





Being a newbie, and labouring for 5 hours, the driver side door is ready for primer accept for a few questions I have for everyone.

Remember I am a newbie as the car thing, and this is my first project. Anyways, I am not sure how to tackle a couple of issues. If these questions are stupid, I do appologize.

1. What can I do about the height difference from the door to the front fender? (Bottom Specific)


2. Should I be filling the GAP from the rear of the door to the rear fender? and is so... How?
3. What is the most effective way to create proper corners and balance...(Top Rear Door and Front Rear Wheel Well Edge)



Rear Pic


Any suggestions would be appreciated... Thanks all

Erv

Also guys,

1. What do the most of you do with the wheel wells to compensate for the wider body panels in the front and rear to get full coverage.

2. What do the most of you do in fastening the top of the ground effect skirt to the fender..

3. I want to put dimond grate on the air wells... Any Ideas on how to install them? I have to cut them etc.

Again, suggestions are appreciated.

Erv

fiberglass and bodywork are art forms and with that being said are subject to however you want to do them.
I was at Archies last week and looked at how they did Clay's car and it was done way differant than I did mine. not that eather was better than the other just done differant.
to bolt the rockers to the rear just drill holes in the flanges and bolt them together you will have to remove the inner fender wells to get to it.
if you look at my therad you will see how I did the side vents and other things. the one thing I did wrong is that I installed the screens before paint now I need to take them out and reinstall them after because you can not get in there to paint. live and learn.
your car is looking great by the way. if you have any questions just PM me.
I hope this helps you.

I would also like to know this.
I don't have an '88, so how would the wheel size differ? Or should those same specs work?
Thanks.

I've got my fingers crossed because I am looking at buying another donor (loaded) with lots of other work done to it that I would not have to do myself.

Things it has that mine does not...

Power Windows, Locks
V6 with Getrag
Vented Hood front and rear.

I guess the only thing I really need to get to get things rolling is the power locks as the widebody covers off the key hole. The other is just added bonus. If you know what I mean.

I guess I will be waiting an hour or two to find out. It is in EDM, I live an hour away, and another guy is going to be looking at it in an hour or so.

Fingers crossed... Waiting with baited breath...:-)

Erv

P.S. Anybody know where I can get a throttle body for the 86 2.5... This one sticks really bad. I have already replaced the throttle cable to no avail...

I am not sure if this was covered, but the Diamond grate thingie I figured out just the other day. Now, I must admit this sounds a bit hoakie, but it looked awesome when I finished, and was a breeze to do.

I went down to my local Fred Meyer (any hardware store will do) and bought some gutter guard.... it is in a roll and is meant to protect your gutters on your house from collecting debris like leaves and such. It is made of a black pliable plastic material, and forms to Archie's intakes very well. I then used a high temp glue stick in my glue gun and affixed them with ease. It takes a bit of patience, but considering any other option I could think of, this was the best and fastest solution I could think of... Plus... it ended up looking awesome!

Using the same specs.... no. Why? Because the 88's stick out by 1/2" more than pre 88s. You'll need to change the specs to make it work or just use 1/2" less of a lip making the rim 19x10.5.

Thanks Arch,
got mine today everything was in one piece...well each piece was in one piece....you get the idea.

one question, how do i mount (or secure) the front part of the rocker / scoop panel behind the front wheel, where it sits in the recess of the front fender (former body moulding area)?
or does it sit there and secure at the front fender well?
thanks

That is about 80% of what my choptop will look like once i add the archie widebody kit and paint it torch red.A custom chin spoiler, hood and decklid modifications, different wheels, and a few other tweeks will be the difference.
