Can folks identify the real/fake parts in this photoshop?

So, I'm a fan of this photoshop : https://i.pinimg.com/originals/74/49...e5da250b56.jpg
I found a thread on here referring to the car that it's based on : https://www.rx7club.com/drifting-226...1014492/page2/

So far, what I've come up with is that it's an RE Amemiya kit, with Feed mirrors.

I would like to know if these items are photoshop, or if they are variants of real items.

Regarding the red car, vs the silver :
- Bumper front slots are wider
- Bumper has fog light (?) openings
- Maybe it's the lighting, but the front fenders appear flush with the doors at the top (on both red and silver cars), I thought the real fenders protrude farther out than the door
- Rocker panel appears to slope down to meet the side splitter
- Side splitter has a [vortex generator?] near the rear wheel that I've not seen anywhere
- Rear fenders are wider

Thanks head of time.

So the red photoshoped FD has Ganador mirrors (FEED uses Ganador mirrors)

- Bumper front slots are wider - Fake. The silver FD shows the original RE-A bumper
- Bumper has fog light (?) openings - Fake. As above...
- Maybe it's the lighting, but the front fenders appear flush with the doors at the top (on both red and silver cars), I thought the real fenders protrude farther out than the door....Those appear to be FEED front and rear fenders.
- Rocker panel appears to slope down to meet the side splitter ...On the red FD thats all photoshopped
- Side splitter has a [vortex generator?] near the rear wheel that I've not seen anywhere...Again photoshop. If you search around you will find some side splitter that has something similar , google: "DAMD side extension side steps"...not as aggressive as the phototshop. Also people make those custom as well...
- Rear fenders are wider - that is also photoshopped on the red FD

The closest you can get to the red photoshoped FD is using the new FEED GT3 fenders and RE-A front bumper and some custom work...

Thanks for clarifying.
It looks like I could also combine an RB rear fender / rocker panel with an alumalite fillet to make the sloped sides.
I looked up the feed gt3. That looks really good, too.
The prices aren't bad either... at least compared to kits for more recent vehicles.
