Hi

Bill has finished the flares - next is the dive plane to be integrated with chin spoiler, then the hood. All will be smoothed and gel coated before he is done. The fuel filler will also go away since the fuel cell is now trunk fill - one of the safety recommendations for the accident analysis last Fall.

This should be enough flare for 10.5" wide rims in front and 12.5" in rear.

Seems like you could fit 12.5" in the front too. I have 9.5 width wheels with no flares, they fit fine.

Sweet. I love that look.

In the early 70's it was trendy in the UK to put a flared arch like that on Rally Ford Escorts. Since then I have always liked the look of a production car with wider arches.

Can't wait to see it done.

Hi

The front was fitted with 275 on 9" rims and 1.5" spacers. The rear with 315 on 10.5" rims and 2" spacers.

More than enough room for anything I can imagine.

The dive planes will get interesting and look very different with the chin spoiler. This is the spoiler before the flares were filled in.
