    Are you doing this on an SC or a MKIV?

    How wide do you want to go?

    Why do you want to go that wide?

    Have you done body work before?

    If youre gonna go the cut & add sheet metal route, make sure you have a good body shop to pull this off. It is alot of work. Even doing a TRD rear WB does require some time as well. Its all about the shop basically.
    Im sure Stefan will chime in here as well

    I'm surprised that I am saying this, but that black challenger came out sick! I would love to inspect the body work up close though.

    Are you going to attemp to do this yourself?If you have no metal fabrication skills and basic bodywork skills,I'd leave it to a pro,don't hack up a car
