Unfortunately all my pictures are too big. If anyone has a solution for this it would be nice to know! Thanks




This is about a TRD replica based on a Kit made by patrick (headcase)

Getting started:



Test fitting the Kit:




Measuring where to cut the rear fender to enlarge the wheel arch and make room for the wider tires.


cutting the outer sheet metal - no pics of cutting the inner metal.


Removing the paint for welding inside and outside




forming the new inner wheel arches:



Cutting the inside trim line:



spot welding:



bending the outside to make it stronger so it can support the fibreglass outer wheel arch in the future.
The lengts i have measured when i test fittet the rear quarters



Cutting it into shape so the fibreglass rear quarter fits over it:




Spray some anti rust protection on and seal the welding spots so there will be no surprises inb the future



grind down paint to have a surface for the body sealant. The surface adhesion is better on the blank metal.






Applying the body sealant to the panel and the body



Now i applied the panel to the body and secured it with screws. After a while i startet to replace the screws with rivets where they stay permanent





Inside of the wheel arch:



Also applied anti rust protection here and then put body sealant on.




17x9.5 Offset 32 OZ Future wheel with 15mm spacer fits very well on the rear:
