hello,

how much wider do they make the car ?

obviously you cut away the quarter panel behind it to make the room like conventional overfender.

cheers

on the likes of a s13 or skyline you get 25mm or 50 mm wider ones ?

no spacing needed.

no one wants an overfender that has gaps all aroung it because its been spaced out

ive been watching this topic, and i have to ask...

what are the purpose of these overfenders?
isnt the idea that they protrude out, to cover wider track set ups? just like the jap tin?

if so, what is the point of the flush fitting ones? isnt it just the same as bolting a panel ontop of a panel? or am i missing the point completely here?

That's exactly what I've been thinking!

Weight saving! Having fiberglass quarters would save you up to 40kg. Plus stops rust!

These are now £180 a pair plus postage. Only a few left so be quick :)

And to confirm the purpose of these over fenders is weight saving!! Cutting the quarters out saves up to 50kg and as so embody has already said, you don't have to worry about these rusting!!

Cool that it saves weight but think you have missed out on an opportunity here to support pretty much everyone who modifies a volvo to fit wider wheels easier and nicer than rolling arches

In addition, you'll never be able to MOT a car that has the rear quarters cut out and replaced with GRP. You'll need an IVA if you ever want to use it legally on a road again.

I can't explain why all those cars have those style quarters.

I can probably explain what FJ might be thinking of.

A modified chassis or monocoque bodyshell is deemed a major alteration to said component. But I'm no expert on when the term "modified" begins and ends. Welding brackets on a chassis is supposedly a mod. Bolting stuff onto a chassis isn't. Something Landy owners might know more about. Not me, but just my guess at direction it's coming from.

I suppose everything above the floor pan might not be considered a mod...

You can modify. As long as it doesn't reduce the strength of what your modifying.

Worst you'll get on a mot is

Modified but not seriously weakened. Which is an advise. Not a fail.

If the tubbing, welding ect is up to scratch. There's no problem. If you couldn't weld chassis every old car would be fucked. Especially every land rover.
