Lookng very good. Might make my life easier when I get to the finishing stage with my car and have to widen the arches to fit the WRX gear under it. Probably 18months - 2 years away from that though ;) I can wait !........................................................................................

The fixing holes are actually clearly marked on the mould from the original (new & genuine) Subaru fender and will need to be drilled ...

Now the first fitting.....

Ok so it was dark and wet and it was only a quick look see operation, but the initial assesment is good - infact very good. Apologies for the picture quality though. The "model" car is a MY series GLF-5 1600 Sedan bought partly for this purpose. (also the quad lamp slam panel for Hatchy - then to be...

Our first born in the flesh !

Right more progress today, we have the first off (RHS) wing completed. VERY pleased with the finish and shape we have.
