They did about 1"-1 1/2" from the looks of it.we didn't really ask for the fact that it looks good the way he did it.

Those guys were trying to sell me on flaring my deuce, I couldn't envision how it would be done, or look. I was hesitant having the body cut up, but now that I see it, it all makes sense. Looks like you could easily run even wider wheels, 10's?

At first we asked about just adding some small bolt on flares like most rx3 guys do.he convinced us to go this route do to the fact that it will look stock-ish....we were hesitant at first but after seing the work we were happy with it.once it's all painted up we will see how it looks.

Started to port the irons and changed out the exhaust sleeves on rotor housings in favor of turbo sleeves.
