    you did a great job on the rear, i cant wait for the front.
    Just a tad of thought however, dont make it to wide you dont want to hide the tires to much then it will start to look fake maybe. Maybe you need bigger spacers to push the wheels out more if you keep adding 4-5 inches.

    The picture shows front before I have tapped and
    cut the bender board. You are absolutely right about
    being careful not the make it look bogus. But you know
    I really do not care about trying to fool people. I just
    like the general lines of the Diablo and wanted to put my
    own little twists on it.

    Besides, you can tell it is not a real Diablo hehe - how
    may real Diablos had flared fenders anyhow? :P

    I have a huge racing seat in there now that will require
    me to do quite a lot of body work on the door area.

    No no no, I did not mean to say you are trying to pass it off as a real one. I was saying you dont want the rims and tires to be tucked into the body hiding them. Let me see if I can find a photo of what i am talking about.

    Its like the wheels seem to be tucked in and makes the wheel look smaller and throwing the car off balance from the eye. It happens also when people dont use the right spacers along with the worng tire / rim size. I hope you sorta understand what I am talking about

    It took all day Sunday to shape just the one rear
    fender. A lot more work than I ever thought...

    But, I can almost guarantee no other Diablo on my
    block has fender like these. :
