The issue is that the wide rear end also requires you to replace the door sill plates to the wider style. If you only wanted the back end, you would have to make some type of transition from the rear clip into the stock door sill plate.

This is from my car. Notice how much wider the sill plate area becomes:

Ahh, I see! Thanks for the input. I'm sure something can be done, I'm just not sure if it's worth the time and money! Thanks for the heads up!

Something can most likely be done but I personally think for the work you would be doing it would not look right at all, Now, it was posted on here a while ago around the time I had gotten my 1st IMSA they were hips that went onto the fatback/notchback, 1/4 panel that gave you the IMSA look without messing with the rocker panel lineup, they looked pretty good but I don't recall where you would get them.

Those look like Centerline wheels. You may want to grab those.

That looks like a complete kit front rear and side and rockers. Why stop at half an imsa may as well go for the whole thing and the rims because their hard to find.

Nah they weren't them, The panels I'm talking about acutely gave the car a side view look of an IMSA but the back end and front all remained the same dimensions It was like a fender flair with an IMSA scoop on the side, If I can find the pics I'll post them up.
